MOROCCO YOGA RETREAT • MAY 2017

MAGIC IN MOROCCO!

A yoga retreat where simplicity and luxury meet in perfect harmony.

If you are looking for deep peace and relaxation, a strong immersion in yoga, and an exciting touch of the exotic…this retreat is for you! Our seven night Morocco Yoga Retreat takes place at an authentic and beautiful boutique hotel in the red clay countryside, twenty minutes outside Marrakech. This Exotic Yoga Retreat blends the luxury of down-time and the healing power of yoga, with adventure and cultural exploration!

 

FLOW OF A DAY

 

MORNINGS  begin in perfect peace, with a chorus of birds and a delicious cup of Moroccan tea on the terrace watching the rural Moroccan countryside stir to life. Join in our morning meditation or enjoy a morning swim before convening on the beautiful rooftop studio for a deeply spirited yoga session with Josie Sykes—infusing new perspectives on yoga asana, philosophy and the joy of music and movement. Following yoga we’ll eat a Moroccan breakfast on the terrace, and appreciate the start of a beautiful day ahead!

AFTERNOONS  are free to lounge by the pool, have a relaxing massage, a traditional Hammam—or just relax and siesta in the charming nooks found throughout the riad’s intimate gardens and courtyards. You may also choose an adventure: hike in the stunning Atlas Mountains, ride a camel or horse-back ride across the plains, or visit and lunch in a nearby traditional Berber village. For a different pace, take our complimentary shuttle into Marrakech to explore the historic sites and be immersed in the pulsating, chaotic and colorful life within the walls of this ancient Medieval city!

EVENINGS  At sunset we re-convene for a relaxing, rejuvenating and inspiring sunset yoga class, followed by a traditional Moroccan meal on the terrace, family-style under the stars.

 

OUR HOTEL

More than a hundred years old, this boutique riad has perfected an authentic and characteristic atmosphere with all the amenities and comfort of a modern hotel! In the traditional Berber style, two large compounds form the shell of the hotel. Enclosed by mud walls, there are swimming and plunge pools, secret terraces, charming gardens and a myriad of quiet corners in which to relax, read and recharge.

There is a full-service spa and traditional Hammam, two beautiful yoga studio spaces, a shaded rooftop terrace and in indoor sun-lit stucco yoga studio. The restaurant and bar is open all day and overlooks the pool and countryside.

Set on a hill overlooking the Berber hamlet of Tagadert, against a backdrop of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains and distant lights of Marrakech, this lovely hotel offers pure peace, stark beauty and endless country roads to roam. The riad is entirely private and peaceful—but also offers opportunities for cultural experience with it’s intimate proximity to the local village, accented our our friendly staff, most of whom live in the local village.
