Meet Christian Coelho

To say we are excited to have Christian Coelho lead his first retreat in Europe or Africa is an understatement! Hailing from Rio de Janeiro where he owns the Casa 111 Yoga Studio, Christian's incredibly humble, genuine, and warm energy gained him a loyal following.

Initially trained in Ashtanga & Rocket Vinyasa Yoga, Christian has found inspiration in the slower and more intuitive style of Forrest Yoga. 

Christian is also the founder of a Cuban salsa group, a massage therapist, and recently graduated with a Masters degree in Yoga History & Philosophy.

Riad Baoussala

The warmth and intimacy of a home combined with the service of a hotel: Baoussala is a home for friends! A place unlike any others where the sweetness of Moroccan life can be savoured to the full - as a family or amongst friends.

The outdoor swimming pool is heated to 28°C all year round, the hammam is delight for the senses at all times, and the terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy the sunset. Baoussala, a place where time seems to have stopped!
