Escape with 109 World and Ambre van de Berg to Marrakech next year May 23-28, 2019! This journey will allow us to explore the beautiful culture of Morocco while supporting important local educational & empowering programs for women & teenage girls in Marrakech.

Ambre van de Berg

Island Yoga & Yoga Girl Official

A trip to India opened my eyes. In 2011, I traveled to Mumbai and Goa in search of adventure. What I received was a clear arrow pointing toward my life path: to dedicate my life to raising awareness of a healthy body and a healthy world, and inspiring people to reconnect to, heal, and strengthen both. My goal is simple: To make this planet a greener and a more beloved place for everyone, and to smile along the journey. Yoga is a powerful tool and the one I call on every day to fuel my mission. Because when you feel whole on the inside, you can be of service on the outside.

If you had a tagline for your life, what would it be? Mine is: Always in motion, just like the ocean. I travel the world for a living and for growth. I love empowering people through organizing inspirational workshops and festivals, and I assist in trainings for self-development that I can pass on to my students. I also rarely sit still since running, jumping and dancing are way more fun.

My journey brought me to a Caribbean island as a program manager and event coordinator for Island Yoga Aruba, as well as an active volunteer for the non-profit global initiative, 109 World. Both companies use the influence of social media and social mission trips to empower everyone everywhere to stand up as a humanitarian in their own way, and I’m so happy to be a part of it.

This special journey will be 6 days long and the trip arrangements include the following:

  • 6 days, 5 nights lodging at Riad Star
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner each day
  • Transportation to and from the airport (you will fly to Marrakesh Menara Airport – the airport code is RAK)
  • Daily yoga with the one and only Ambre van de Berg
  • Daily guided sunset meditation
  • Volunteer work supporting women & teenage girls of Morocco
  • Optional excursions including wandering through the local markets, relaxing during a Hammam treatment, exploring the historic palaces, adventures in the desert, and more!

All the bedrooms at Riad Star have different layouts. You can check the details of all rooms here. For this retreat we will accommodate two twin beds in each room and all participants will have one roommate. Please email us at info@109world.com if you have any special request regarding accommodation or any question.

Women in morocco are often ostracized from society and have little opportunity in life if they are from disadvantaged backgrounds (widows, divorcees, single mothers, orphans, women with little education, etc.). Our goal this trip to learn more and support an incredible organization providing opportunities for them.

The Henna Café is a a special place in Marrakech to enjoy food, henna, art and classes. All profits from these cultural experiences is used to give free education and assistance to Moroccan people. They do this in a variety of ways including free classes in several topics that are free of charge, support of local artists with exhibition space and free supplies, and employment for community members. Here you can come enjoy some delicious Moroccan food, get a beautiful Henna done by a local artist, and explore their collection of art  -all in support of educating and empowering the local community!
