Retreat of the week: Marrakech + Sahara Desert Yoga & Art Retreat

Spread the love

On this 8 day Marrakech + Sahara Desert Yoga and Art retreat, we’ll first enjoy the bustling city, discovering its souks and artisan crafts throughout the medina and then we’ll head out to the Sahara desert for a few nights under the stars.

You will visit and ancient Kasbah, or fortress village as well as engage with our Berber women’s textile co-op community partner to learn about artisan textile traditions.

Our artisan producer partners use natural dying methods for textiles, using spices and herbs such as saffron and indigo. They also craft by hand and play an important role in their community.

Local experiences include a traditional sand-oven cooking class in the desert, as well as cultural education about traditions, artisanship and the Moroccan way of life.

We work with our local hotel partners to ensure fresh, locally sourced breakfasts and we visit locally owned restaurants that prioritise regional cuisine such as olive oil, local breads and figs.

Our group is limited to 12 people, and bookings are based on double occupancy. Single rooms are available for an additional fee.
