MOROCCO YOGA RETREAT

Hatha Yoga in the Desert

June 1723, 2018
If you are searching for a hand-crafted luxury retreat to blend the luxury of down-time and healing inspirational yoga, with boundless adventure and cultural exploration… this Exotic Yoga Retreat is for you! Our 7-night getaway takes place at a breathtakingly beautiful authentic boutique hotel in the red clay countryside, situated twenty minutes outside Marrakech.
Morning

Wake to a chorus of birds and a steaming cup of Moroccan mint tea, served on the terrace with a view of the surrounding countryside slowly stirring to life. Perhaps enjoy a morning swim before convening with the group for yoga class on our beautiful rooftop studio. Josie Sykes—beloved for her depth of knowledge in the yoga sutras, her beautiful harmonium music and her wise and sweet spirit—will guide morning meditation, pranayama and a Hatha-Vinyasa yoga class. Josie has a superb understanding of healthy postural alignment from her extensive background in both yoga and the Feldenkrais Method. Following an immersive yoga and meditation practice, we eat a healthy Moroccan breakfast to prepare us for a relaxing or adventurous day ahead.

Afternoon

Between breakfast and sunset, you’re free to unwind and bask – or go out and explore Morocco! Hike the Atlas Mountains (a group excursion we treat you to!) take a camel in the desert, lunch at a traditional Berber village. Or just lounge by one of the riad’s peaceful pools, have a relaxing massage or experience a traditional hammam. Or take a complimentary shuttle into Marrakech to see artisans at work, sample traditional snacks and absorb the chaotic and colorful life within the walls of the medieval medina, a Unesco World Heritage Site. Everyday a delicious lunch of savory salads is served at the riad.

Evening

At sunset we reconvene at the riad for a powerful pranayama and hatha yoga practice. Afterward, in the balmy night air, enjoy a traditional Moroccan meal on the terrace, or in the charming dining room, sharing food and stories—family-style under the stars.
