Frequently Asked Questions
What is EPIC?
EPIC is global movement standing for “Empower People Inspire Change”. A celebration of yoga with a good cause promoting philanthropy and raising funds for two different African health and wellness social development projects each year. Our mission is to create an unforgettable experience connecting like-minded people passionate about yoga and bringing everyone closer to the roots of the African culture.
EPIC was born in June 2019, with the 1st 3-day International Yoga Festival that took place in Marrakech.
As a continuation, we created the EPIC Tour, a delightful blend of our yearly Festival so people can join our community from all over the world!
