Marrakech Wellbeing Weekend - 1st-4th November 2019
This long weekend yoga retreat in the heart of our favourite city, Marrakech, has been designed to appeal to your senses, restore your equilibrium and invite a fresh perspective.
Throughout the course of this three-night break, we'll be providing a total of six mindful yoga and meditation classes, on the roof terrace or in the beautiful central courtyard. These classes, combined with an amazingly tranquil setting, fabulous vegetarian cuisine and a 45-minute massage, will help re-balance mind and body. Beginners to yoga/meditation are very welcome
Our host accommodation
Our setting for this Wellbeing Weekend is one of our favourite Marrakech-centre Riads, chosen for its amazingly central yet peaceful, location and ambience.
We'll take our yoga and meditation sessions on the lovely roof terrace or in the evocative central courtyard.
Our venue is a true retreat. It has just five lovely, individually designed rooms, in addition to the atmospheric central courtyard and large roof terrace, surrounded by palm trees and plants. The sound of birdsong is ever-present.
In common with the best Riads, food is super-fresh and delicious, and the service is unfailingly warm, efficient and friendly, with the owners experienced at hosting groups, and also keen yoga practitioners!
With no jet-lag, no time difference and a direct flying time from London to Morocco (with Easyjet, BA or Ryanair) of just over three hours, getting there for a long weekend is easy and provides an easy start for this wellbeing weekend.
We always remain astonished at how a short flight transports us to an entirely different world - one bursting with colour, atmosphere, and a warm welcome.
Yoga and meditation
The twice-daily yoga and meditation classes will be suitable for all levels, from beginners through to experienced students.
The small group numbers ensure scope for plenty of individual attention.
The morning class will be accessible hatha flow yoga, with different options given for different levels of experience.
The evening session will be a soft combination of very gentle yoga, meditation and relaxation.
Foodie treats: what to expect
The food is always a highlight of these retreats: lovingly prepared by the in-house cook, authentic, fresh and delicious.
Moroccan eating is all about slow food and the quality of local seasonal ingredients: guests often remark on tantalising smells emanating from the kitchen from early afternoon - the evening meal being prepared with flair and love.
You will start the morning by serving a light snack of fruit, tea and coffee before commencing with the morning practice.
After class, you'll enjoy a colourful and hearty brunch consisting of local delicacies, salads, eggs, fruits, breads and pastries.
Afternoon tea is served daily - cakes are a delicious indulgence, made to local recipes and served with teas and coffee. We also serve fruit and nuts for guests wishing to save themselves for the evening meal!
A three course meal is served on each evening of the retreat. The food is varied, plentiful and completely vegetarian - a great way to end the day.
