Description

Mountain Yoga & Mindfulness Retreat in Morocco

This 7 night all inclusive yoga and Mindfulness retreat takes place in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco at Kasbah du Toubkal.

Located just 90 minutes from Marrakech, the Kasbah is set within the Toubkal National Park below the towering flanks of Jbel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa. It is a place of outstanding natural beauty, peace and seclusion.

As part of the location where Martin Scorsese filmed the movie Kundun about the Dalai Lama’s life, the Kasbah is the ideal location for a yoga and mindfulness retreat. The Kasbah has panoramic views of the mountains, valleys and waterfalls and is reached by a short walk (15 min) or mule ride from the village of Imlil.

Your seven nights will be spent at the Kasbah, where there will be two yoga and mindfulness classes on
each full day and a guided walk, with one yoga free day. The hammam is free to be enjoyed after yoga or a walk.
