• 7 Day Form & Focus Luxury Yoga Retreat

Summary

Luxe spas, day trips, and wellness awaits you on this magical retreat in Marrakesh as you explore the more luxurious side of Morocco in style!

This yoga & creativity retreats combines a look at creative focus with travel-journal creation classes throughout the week. Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare your body and mind to find the 'calm in the chaos' of the sensory-overload that is Morocco, and then these creativity projects will give you new ways of seeing.

Both yoga and art work together to help you find focus in the many layers of smells, sights, and sounds that abound in exotic Marrakesh. All levels are welcome, and participation is voluntary. Projects and classes will be offered as a completely exploratory, unintimidating and personal experience.

This fantastic yoga retreat will take place at the fabulous boutique hotel, located in Marrakesh on 8.5 acres of land, including 5 acres of olive groves, this stylish and eco-friendly abode has been featured in worldwide publications, including National Geographic Traveler.

Outside of the lush venue, this retreat also offers some amazing day-trips to the surrounding sites. A guided day in Marrakesh will lead guests through an introduction to souks, the medina, and visits to sites, such as luxurious palaces full of Moroccan architecture and design.

A day will be spent exploring the nearby Atlas Mountains at a 5* retreat with a mule trek to a nearby village, followed by a chef tasting lunch and wine pairing. This is truly a magical day - you get out of the city and see the vast expanse of the mountain ranges and unique Berber villages while you are taken care of with the impeccable service of this absolutely gorgeous, luxe hideaway. 

Throughout the week you will also experience visits to Marrakesh’s “new city” where you will enjoy a magical dinner filled with live music and exotic surroundings, the possibility for a camel ride in the palmerie, and some time to check out some of the great boutiques of the city. 

After an on-site henna party one day, you’ll take off for an afternoon at one of the country’s most ultra-luxe hotels (commissioned by the king) for an indulgent high tea; just being able to attend the halls of this beautiful building are a magical treat. Of course you’ll visit the Garden Majorelle and new YSL Museum, and the final full day entails a trip to a famous Moroccan hammam (a luxurious spa facility), where guests will 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!

Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help you grow in your own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to experienced, and can range from gentle, restorative yoga, to more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles. With a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practice. 

This retreat is part of the Give Back initiative, where the organisers will donate at least 10% of their profits to a humanitarian partner in the community where each retreat is held. The partner in Marrakesh is Project Soar who works with underprivileged communities and young women to empower with design, clean-up projects, and creative ventures.

Location

Marrakech, Morocco

Marrakech has stood for close to a thousand years, a city of history and culture. One of the most evocative places in the world, just the name conjures up images of this cultural melting pot – sandstone buildings, dusty streets and towering minarets against deep blue skies immediately spring to mind. Known as The Red City thanks to the hue of the thick walls surrounding the old city, Marrackech is a major economic center and home to mosques, palaces and gardens. The medina is a densely packed, walled medieval city dating to the Berber Empire, with mazelike alleys where thriving souks sell traditional textiles, pottery and jewelry.

Discover the untold stories of Morocco in the magical town of Douar Ladaam! Whether you want a heart-pounding adventure, a luxurious retreat, a trip full of culture, or the most amazing shopping holiday ever, this town will exceed your expectations. Start at action-packed Djemaa el-Fna and head north into Marrakesh’s maze of souks, where Berber tribes once traded slaves, gold, ivory and leather, and where modern tourists scour people-packed alleys for carpet bargains and babouches. If you look carefully, you’ll also spot a number of creative new boutiques and galleries. They signify the evolving face of the medina as a new generation of craftsmen and artists try to connect the city’s hankering for modernity with its traditional craft heritage.


Beyond the souks, the medina is an ideal place to explore private palaces and riad mansions, many of which now provide the city’s most atmospheric accommodation. But it’s worth leaving the old city occasionally for dinner, drinks and art galleries in the ville nouvelle (new town), mountain bike rides in the palmeraie (palm oasis) or horse-riding and weekend retreats in the Agafay Desert and Ouirgane. A symbol of the city, and visible for miles, is the Moorish minaret of 12th-century Koutoubia Mosque.


Marrakech-Menara Airport is an international airport with direct scheduled flights from London, Dublin, Oslo, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Paris and Madrid and many charter flights arriving from all over Europe. If you are flying from the US, Canada, Asia or elsewhere, you'll have to change planes in Casablanca. Plenty of low cost companies fly to Marrakech. Some companies fly to Casablanca, where a plane change for the 45 min flight to Marrakech can be made.

Food

Healthful, vegetarian food is part of the retreat experience, including daily breakfast at the hotel. Most lunches and dinners will either hosted at the hotel or out and about in town. The cuisine is simple, delicious and Moroccan-inspired, 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, fresh fruit dishes, and of course some special sweet treats. Selection is seasonal, and you can guarantee to love and appreciate each bite.

You'll also be enjoying a chef tasting lunch and wine pairing during one of the day trips, as well as a henna party during lunch, and an evening tea + snack session in the olive grove one night in the outdoor cinema.

Peacock Pavilions, Venue for 7 Day Form & Focus Luxury Yoga Retreat

A fabulous boutique hotel situated in a secluded and serene land, Peacock Pavilions is located in Marrakesh with 5 acres of olive grove. This stylish and eco-friendly abode has been featured in worldwide publications, including National Geographic Traveler, Elle Decor, Travel+Leisure and more. Deliberately intimate and exclusive, Peacock Pavilions sleeps 10-12 in 2 guest pavilions. Breathtakingly beautiful and luxuriously designed, the living quarters where guests will stay during the retreat features gorgeous fireplaces and 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 stunning place to relax, the salon or the great room has a stunning lacy plasterwork that took weeks to complete. There is also seating and dining areas for intimate discussions and cosy 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 a henna and cocktail party in the painted tent, or perhaps an outdoor cinema night on the lawn.


Just 13 kilometres outside the Medina of Marrakesh, Peacock Pavilion is closest to the Marrakesh- Menara Airport where cabs are easily available should you choose to commute. The Peacock Pavilion offers transfers from the airport to the villa.
