YOGA

With 6 yoga sessions throughout the weekend, the practice will be accessible to anyone.  You can practice at your own pace and you will be offered modifications / choices to suit you.

​The morning yoga sessions will start with optional kriyas, pranayama and meditation, followed by an asana class.  This practice will take its theme from the surrounding environment and will aim to open the body, connect with the breath and encourage focus and alertness for the mind.  

The morning practice will be followed by a deliciously nourishing brunch produced by our personal chef.  Then you will then be free to swim and read around the heated pool, relax in the privacy of the one hectare garden, or take a nourishing afternoon nap in your cool and comfortable room. 

 The evening classes will take a more restorative focus.   The practice will be grounding and quieting for both body and mind and will include some meditation and yoga nidra.  We will enjoy a 3-course evening meal readying us for a good night of sleep.

CULTURAL EXCURSION

 

One afternoon we will venture into the medina of Marrakech, steeped in history and culture and just waiting to be explored.  Get whisked away to another time – a world brimming with multicoloured carpets, silk kaftans, spices, antiques, leather, pottery, jewelry, snake charmers and Berber culture.  

 

We will guide you for a stroll around the souks where you can practice your bartering skills or settle to watch the world go by from a rooftop terrace café.  There will also be the option to visit a luxury hammam (hand-picked after visiting many!) for a body scrub and massage. After the onslaught on the senses from the bazaars, architecture, arts, street food, donkeys, carts, motorbikes and people of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, we will return to the peace, charm and tranquility of our retreat villa.
