Welcome to Satvada retreats
“Travel is like love: a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.” - Pico Iyer
Our special focus is Morocco - a country we know and love. We also run Art of Relaxation weekends (based on gentle yoga & mindfulness meditation) in the UK and Summer retreats to South-West France.
With a background in health and travel writing, we have been lucky enough to have experienced (and reviewed) many yoga escapes. We hope to turn this experience to your advantage, by bringing together the best of the retreat experience.

'The Riad near Essaouira was absolutely beautiful, the food was fantastic and there was a great range of activities on offer. The yoga tuition was excellent - Lucia is a gentle and knowledgeable instructor ... I found the mindfulness practices really helpful too. Since we returned home, I have felt inspired to practice almost daily and have joined a local class. Overall the retreat was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience, and I would have no hesitation recommending it to anyone.' - To read more testimonials, click here.
