Description

Adventure and Relax Yoga Holiday Marrakech

This November, come and stay with us for a week on our autumn yoga holiday Marrakech, Morocco. With temperatures reaching 23 degrees and clear sunny days it is a perfect break away from the colder darker days of the Northern hemisphere.

Only a 20-minute drive into the heart of the old city of Marrakech and the souks, spend a day exploring and shopping here (for your Xmas presents maybe?!) or relax at our authentically designed and furnished Berber retreat hotel.

A spacious hotel with two yoga spaces, two pools, plenty of outdoor lounging space and Moroccan courtyards with bourgainvilea romantically spilling over from private balconies, you can spend the day here unwinding from your busy day to day life, surrounded by views of the Atlas mountains.

There are plenty of other activities to do if you wish to be more active and adventurous; take a day trip to the stunning blue and white city of Essouira – where Jimi Hendrix wrote the song purple haze; or take a day trip to the Atlas Mountains and visit Berber villages or experience the dessert.

Whatever it is you decide to do, there are two hours of yoga in the morning and 1.5 hours practise in the evening in the outdoor yoga shala to re-energise and revitalise throughout the week.

Enjoy three meals a day and fabulous massage and other treatments in the spa area, with hammam and hot tub. Float back to your room or relax by the pool or in one of the many courtyards. It is your holiday so be as active or relaxed as you like.

Accommodation

Your accommodation is based 24km outside of Marrakech in a small Berber village, its narrow alleyways and flat-roofed village houses made from packed mud and water giving them an earthy colour and warm glow.

The main area of our yoga hotel was built in 1840. From the outside it looks unassuming, walk in and it opens up into a peaceful and stylish space with large heated outdoor pool and relaxation area with views of Marrakech and the Atlas mountains beyond.

With lawns, corridors and courtyards shrouded by banana palms, citrus and olive trees and the scents and colours of orange blossom and roses assail the senses. You may even meet the odd tortoise!

The bedrooms are authentically Moroccan in design. They can be twin/double or single rooms and have good quality linen and hand woven Moroccan covers and cushions with a lot of space and large bathrooms. They each have the traditional seating area and many of the bedrooms have fireplaces and private terraces.

The suites are larger and have larger bathrooms, larger seating areas and private balcony or outdoor space.

Yoga

Morning yoga on your yoga holiday in Marrakech: wake up early to see the sunrise over the Atlas Mountains in the distance in our outdoor yoga shala.

The practice will begin as a gentle awakening, building up to more dynamic poses – slowly building so that over the 6 days of yoga asana you find your body opening up to new depths in poses you’d never imagined; that you can settle in meditation quicker than before, that silence is something to be cherished. Feel energised and refreshed and ready for your day in the sun.

Evening yoga on your yoga holiday Marrakech: Arrive at our fully equipped yoga shala for sunset yoga. Settle into a more restorative practice to begin with and once the deep rest has been satisfied with yoga nidra and restorative poses, find more playful partner yoga being welcomed.

Cuisine

There are three meals included in the price of this holiday and it is catered for by their own local Moroccan chefs.

For breakfast enjoy fresh Moroccan coffee or tea or herbal teas and a delicious buffet spread of fruit, pancakes, Moroccan almond nut and honey butter, eggs, toast, different pastries and cakes and yoghurts.

For lunch it is again a fabulous buffet of vegetarian dishes from baked aubergine, omelette, green salads, beetroot salads, soup of the day, different breads, fresh pizza.

For dinner, you can choose prior to joining us if you would like to have the meat or vegetarian option for the week. You will enjoy a 3 course evening meal.
