SURF. YOGA. BEACH. RECONNECT.

That's what we have planned for you, for 5 days, in the middle of Moroccan sand dunes, by the Atlantic Ocean. 

DARE YOUR DREAMS is a retreat made for those who want to challenge themselves. 

You will be challenged physically, with surfing classes, morning yoga and pilates fusion classes. But you will also be challenged on a personal level with the different workshops that have been created to push you out of your comfort zone. The goal is to take time to reconnect to your true self, stepping away from everyday life to a place where everything is organised for you to have fun, learn and grow. 

We will explore our dreams.

Not those that we have at night but the ones that we have deep in our hearts, sometimes buried or forgotten. You may be overwhelmed by crazy dreams, or maybe you havent thought about them in years. In any case, in Dakhla (pronounced Darla) you will be free to dare. To dare dream, open up, write, laugh, connect, dance, sing, live and learn.  

 

Yes, it will be uncomfortable to challenge yourself. But that's why we found the ideal place for you to feel safe. You will be away from the world, on the sand with the warm water lapping at your feet and the slow sound of the waves all around. 

Dakhla, a unique place.

Dakhla is on the edge of the ocean, at the gates of the Moroccan Sahara.

Océan Vagabond Ecolodge of Lassarga offers a unique setting in harmony with nature where meals are homemade with fresh, local products. Two meter beds, the sound of the waves, evenings around the bonfire...You are also there to charge your batteries and replenish your energy. Check out the Villas here

WORKSHOPS

What do you dream of? What lights your inner fire? What do you want to nourish, cultivate in your life?

The workshops you will be doing during the retreat are introductory workshops to personal development on different themes. The goal here is to create space for you to reflect and dive deeper into your inner self, which you usually don't have time to do in the hubbub of everyday life. It's rational thinking brought to dreaming.

The Coach

 Alice Mayne, ancienne athlète d'équipe de France. Sais tu de quel sport? Aujourd'hui elle est coach sportif et trainer certifiée Pilates Fusion. Pour connaître son histoire, c'est par ici sur @alice.mayne.

Ce que Alice aime le plus c'est déclencher des déclis chez les autres : le déclic de se faire confiance, l'apprentissage de l'amour de soi, le lâcher prise physique et mental. Pour cela elle utilise le coaching sportif, les cours de pilates fusion, le mouvement libre et des ateliers pensés sur mesure. 

Ceci est la quatrième Retraite organisée par Alice. C'est elle qui animera toute la retraite et les ateliers. Pour voir les retours sur la première (Hossegor 2020) clique ici

The Retreat "Mum"

Marie-Pierre, scientifique dans l’âme, coachant des élèves du Supérieur en Maths et préparation mentale, doté d’un sens infaillible de la rigueur et de l’organisation, est également une sportive amatrice (nage en eau libre, Swimrun, Pilate, Course à pied…)

Amoureuse de la mer qu’elle parcourt au gré de courses d’eau libre (OpenWaterSwimming), une manière pour elle de se challenger et repousser plus loin ses propres limites en affrontant des conditions imprévues et des distances « Marathon ».

Elle a rencontré Alice lors d’un Raid en montagne, qui l’a ensuite initiée au Pilate Fusion sur toute la période de confinement, puis coachée pour ses projets sportifs. 

L’envie d’Alice d’aller plus loin dans l’accompagnement de ses coaché.e.s, en organisant des stages/retraites, alliée au sens de l’organisation de Marie-Pierre a donné lieu à leurs premières retraites ensemble à Hossegor en 2020.

Ce projet de retraite à Dakhla où Marie-Pierre se rend régulièrement pour nager et pour encadrer le plus grand évènement d’eau libre du Maroc, muri depuis 2 ans…Un lieu unique, magique, l’endroit idéal pour DARE your DREAMS !

The Photographer

Marika, ancienne athlète en équipe de France de ski de fond est une vraie amoureuse de son pays : le Jura. Elle a longtemps brillé sur des courses internationales, même après sa carrière, en vlogant les courses pour une chaîne de télévision sportive. Elle dégage douceur, force et détermination à la fois, et son talent pour l'esthétique est bluffant. Mais sa photgraphie n'est pas seulement esthétique : Marika pose son regard doux sur la nature, les animaux et les humains qu'elle rencontre et transmet à travers sa photo leurs histoires. 

Alice l'avait déjà appelé pour la retraite à Hossegor au tout début de sa carrière de photographe. Tu peux voir son travail sur la première retraite ici, et tout son art, son monde, ses chats et son chalet sur son instagram @marikagodin.
