High in the Atlas Mountains, the enchanting Kasbah Bab Ourika overlooks a breathtaking landscape. 360-degree panoramic views? Indeed.
From your hilltop lookout at the apex of the Ourika valley a feast of natural beauty awaits to melt your heart. Gaze down to the river and let the olive groves, oranges, and lemons lead your eyes on a colourful dance between the green fields all the way up to snowy mountain peaks dazzling in the sunlight.
The authentic charm of the Kasbah Bab Ourika makes relaxation easy. Whether you’re enjoying your individually decorated room, or unwinding by the secluded swimming pool, get ready to be warmed by the yummy Moroccan sun from dawn to dusk.
Hi, I'm Sammy!
I created BLITZ By Harper with four pillars in mind; FITNESS. MIND. COMMUNITY. FUN. These are the cornerstones and something every BLITZ class represents. It is more than just a workout programme, it's a community, it's working out for the body AND the mind.
I discovered yoga in 2013 after years of strength and conditioning training left me wishing I could touch my toes. Through a consistent practice of yoga and meditation, I found the freedom to move in a way that I didn't think possible.
Along with improving flexibility, I've gained strength, balance and connection, both on and off my mat.

The coaches on your trip will programme as much variety as possible in the format, style and location of each of the workouts throughout the week. You can expect different training techniques such as functional strength movements involving sandbags and dumbbells, plyometric bodyweight movements and endurance training, boxing, team runs, HIIT circuits, and our legendary finishers!
