Yoga in Essaouira

I once offered information about teachers of yoga in Essaouira on TripAdvisor and I have subsequently responded to – on average – 1-2 queries a month in relation to this topic. In an attempt to make this information searchable, I compile it below.

Here are the contact details of those teachers I know of who are teaching yoga in Essaouira. Let me know if you know of others.

Laila: 06 36 55 39 61 (also on Facebook)

Jo: 06 96 94 58 74 

Brynn: 06 91 20 63 32 (ashtanga and vinyasa styles)

Karim: Call/What’sApp +61 405 792 052 (Australian number) or Facebook

Jana: 06 96 63 14 74 (ashtanga style lessons of 1hr20m for individuals or groups)

Maria: contact via Facebook (ashtanga style)

Schedules and venues change and classes may be offered on a group or individual basis, so it’s best to call to get the latest details.

Rachel organises yoga retreats in Essaouira and elsewhere. Contact her on: 06 08 50 37 18 or through her website.

Free yoga is available on the beach in front of the Atlas Hotel on the first Saturday of the month at 10:30 am. See the Essaouira Mind-Body-Soul Facebook group for further details.

There are also pilates classes available in Essaouira, with Steve (tel: 06 37 82 78 33) and Tai Chi and Chi Gong classes with Yves (on Facebook)

Please note, I have not done classes with any of these yoga teachers, so it’s up to you to go along and see if their style suits you.

      Hi Andy,
      There is a gym called MogaMove in the the new town (ask a taxi driver) which has separate men’s and women’s sessions and gets good reviews. Otherwise the larger hotels have gyms – the one at the Sofitel in Diabat is particularly good (but not cheap). There are also plenty of yoga and pilates classes around town.
      Enjoy!

      Hi Michelle,
      thanks for your message. I don’t have e-mail addresses for the teachers, but you can contact them via Facebook or WhatsApp before you come if you need to. Also, try the Facebook group Essaouira BODY – MIND – SOUL (link in the article above) for the latest wellbeing events and classes.
      Enjoy your trip!
