Riad Near Marrakech

May 27—June 3, 2017

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 the Day

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.


More than a hundred years old, our beautiful boutique riad has perfected an authentic and characteristic atmosphere with all the amenities and comfort of a modern hotel!  Set in a Berber Village 20 minutes outside Marrakech against a backdrop of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, our riad is both traditional and modern, down-to-earth and luxurious. Our riad sits within the traditional mud walls of Berber architecture, lush with charming gardens and secret terraces. There are two swimming pools, a full-service spa and hammam, a poolside bar and restaurant—all the luxury and serenity that makes an Exotic Yoga Retreat pampering and rejuvenating!

Anna - Morocco Yoga Retreat
“Everything about this retreat was special. I have the most beautiful memories, new friends and experiences that I will cherish! The retreat combined the perfect blend of yoga, meditation and fun excursions. I also enjoyed the flexibility in our daily schedule… I had time for myself, to re-align and reflect on my life; as well as meet great like-minded people. Meeting Gayle has been a true delight. Her loving and positive energy was very present and made this retreat a real joy for me. I recommend this retreat to anyone looking to ‘switch-off’, re-balance and have a lot of fun”

Moroccans are very friendly and hospitable to all tourists and travelers, including Americans!  While Morocco has an old world charm, it is also quite contemporary when it comes to receiving international travelers. Since many of our retreat participants are females traveling solo we like to address the question of safety… our experience is that arriving to Marrakech is relaxing, hassle-free and safe!  The airport is small and easy to navigate. Our driver can meet you outside baggage claim and take you directly to our hotel. If you choose to stay in Marrakech prior to the retreat, you will have a wonderful time wandering the streets of the ancient walled city.

Overall you can feel relaxed and safe traveling in Morocco!
