Yoga Journal: “One Yogi Explores Moroccan Culture on Retreat”

“Our guide was Peggy Markel, a yogi with deep roots in the slow food movement who was traveling in Morocco on September 11, 2001. Overcome by the kindness and sympathy shown to her at the time by Muslim strangers, Markel made a commitment to showcase the country’s complex blend of Berber, Arab, and Muslim cultures. Morocco’s food, combining exotic spices and traditional local ingredients, would be her great communicator. Yoga would be a grounding force to help participants absorb their experiences more deeply.”
