Fez is one of the many places in Morocco where you can enjoy a yoga session in a blissful and peaceful atmosphere. The difference between Fez and other cities, like Casablanca, is that you can practice while taking in the surrounding views, since most sessions are done outdoors on terraces overlooking the Old Medina, far from the hectic vibes of the souks.
Aditi Yoga Center
Aditi is the first yoga studio in Fez, founded by Begoña, a Spanish woman who started practicing meditation at the age of 20, but kept it as a hobby while she worked as a project manager in Germany. Many years later, Begoña got bored with the routine and left Germany to move to Fez and practice yoga. She started at the American Center of Fez, until she found the perfect studio for her fellow yogis. Now, she is located in the heart of the Medina, where she gives yoga classes every day of the week, in the most peaceful atmosphere you can find in the middle of the bustling souk. Begoña is the only internationally certified Hatha yoga teacher in Fez, which guarantees you a top and exclusive experience.
