This retreat met every expectation, and more! It has opened my heart and given me great joy and strength. I am not exaggerating when I say it was simply PERFECT!

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 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!


Discover or rediscover the joy of yoga with intelligent and creative yoga classes blending Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Yin Yoga traditions. Whether fiery and energetic or soft and receptive, the yoga sessions are designed for mixed levels, offering modifications for beginners, and greater levels of challenge for advanced students. Our yoga programs emphasize safety, awareness, intelligence—and the joie di vivre of yoga!


That was the best week of my life! Thank you all for making this trip more than I could have expected. I miss you all and expect we can keep in touch. Better yet, reunite at a future Exotic Yoga Retreat!

—Scott Scaggs
