Luxury Yoga Retreat at Peacock Pavilions, Marrakech
26th October – 1st November
This Luxury Yoga Retreat at Peacock Pavilions offers a series of mindful workshops that will guide you in the exploration of creative self-expression in your life. Expect meaningful discussions and fun activities intended to help you tap into your own inner wisdom and heartfelt desires.
Your retreat home for the week is the fabulous Peacock Pavilions boutique hotel. This stylish and eco-friendly abode has been featured in worldwide publications, including National Geographic Traveler.
You will not only enjoy the grounds of Peacock Pavilions, the outdoor areas including a lovely pool, patio, private terraces, and covered yoga platform, but the retreat includes some amazing day-trips to the surrounding sites.
A guided day trip in Marrakech will lead you through an introduction to souks and visits to sites such as Ben Youssef Medrasa. A full day will be spent exploring the nearby Atlas Mountains with a base at the Kasbah Tamadot Hotel with a traditional mule trek to the nearby village of Asni followed by time at the beautiful grounds of this 5-star location overlooking the vista and tasting menu lunch.
The final full day entails a trip to the famous Bains de Marrakech, a luxurious spa facility, where guests can be pampered to their heart’s content with a full program of various treatments. What better way to wrap up a week of yoga than a day of pure relaxation.
* Energizing & clarifying your dreams
* Connecting with others and this world on a deeper level
* Discovering powerful creative tools for the subconscious using journals, images, affirmations
* Boosting awareness of yourself and how you’re creating your life
* Changing the stories and beliefs holding you back from having exactly what you want!
Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles.
Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit participating students’ needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practice.
Depending on each retreat location, classes will be held in a dedicated indoor yoga space and some also offer outdoor options as well for us to use if the weather is agreeable.
Participation in classes and activities is optional throughout the retreat. All levels welcome!
Healthful, vegetarian food is part of the retreat experience, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily either hosted at Peacock Pavilions or out and about in town.
Some even come with a side dish of belly-dancing! Plus, there is a wine-tasting, a cocktail reception, and even a meal at the night market.
The cuisine is simple, delicious and Moroccan, using fresh ingredients from the on-site organic gardens or local markets.
Selection may include tempting dishes and libations like stuffed dates, almond couscous, vegetable terrine, avocado dip, leek tarts, mint tea, pomegranate martini, rose water, and more.
Breathtakingly beautiful and luxuriously designed, the living quarters where you will stay during the Marrakech Yoga Move + Manifest retreat features gorgeous fireplaces and a glamorous bathrooms in each room.
Each bedroom also has its own private terrace – “just the right place to enjoy a minty tea or a zingy cocktail”. The entire pavilion property has been decorated with care and “loaded with art, special fabrics, and exotic good stuff from all around the world.
A swanky place to relax, the salon/great room has a stunning lacy plasterwork that took weeks to complete. There is also seating and dining areas for intimate discussions and cozy meals.
A spiral staircase leads to a catwalk high in the air, where you can sit on vintage embroideries and admire the view.”
Not only is this place gorgeous, but it’s also eco-friendly. Observing “green” building and gardening techniques, you’ll feel good about the organic bounty served to your plate, and the hot water you use heated by the solar panels!
Spend some free time at the lovely, inviting pool and patio, or join us for a henna and cocktail party in the painted tent, or perhaps an outdoor cinema night on the lawn.
Peacock Pavilions is owned by Maryam and her husband Chris, both recently featured on HGTV’s House Hunters International.
Chris is an architect, and Maryam a freelance photographer, travel and lifestyle writer, and the author of the award winning blog, My Marrakesh. Both make a perfect team in putting this amazing estate together.

What past guests have said
“Deciding to finally live my dream and go to Moroocco, when finding the Luxury Marrakech yoga package I was immediately sold! Erin did an outstanding job to really deliver a luxury retreat without missing a beat! Her knack for style, taste, and overall experience is bang on! I just wish it never ended!! From the food selections to the markets, hotels, spas, wine tasting, mule treks and yoga (of course), it was all around exceptional. She has created the ultimate experience, and I look forward to adding another one of her retreats to my list! Thank you, Erin, for a life altering experience that I will always cherish!.” Danielle, Toronto, Canada
“My wife and I have participated on four of these retreats. Each time we have been completely captivated by the experience. The locations are absolutely spectacular. The food and wine is local, healthy, fresh and delicious. The daily trips are personal, structured (but not overly so), enthralling, adventurous and chic. This is not your uncle’s travel guide tour. Erin offers an intimate and deeply restorative experience. It is invitation to form lifetime friendships with people who are curious, joyful and fun. Many times we feel like we are not only getting a sense for a place but being invited to peer behind the veil and see what is invisible to many travelers, all informed by Erin’s appreciative eye for beauty, story and style. Finally the yoga is inclusive and healing. I love the music, the settings, the flow and Erin’s ability to meet you where you are at in your practice. This is our first choice for international travel, personal restoration and inspiration. We highly recommend the experience!”. Rene, California, USA
“The Marrakech yoga retreat was like a dream. Every detail from the warm welcome to the departure lunch was fabulous and so thoughtful. Erin’s wonderful personality along with all the women in our group created a beautiful energy full of fun, adventure and inspiration. Everyday there were new activities, treasures to see at Peacock Pavillions, yoga postures and beautiful table settings in the stunning dinning tent. Along with Erin, Maryam and Chris were so welcoming and made us feel so comfortable. Peacock Pavilions was an amazing and perfect setting for the retreat. Thanks so much Erin – my mom and I had a fantastic week and we look forward to another one…maybe Italy next.” Michele – Vancouver, Canada
