Easter: April 2 - April 7, 2014 - booking opening soon

easter 2014 marrakech riad morocco yoga retreat april
Do you have time off this Easter and fancy doing something special? Why not join us on our Easter yoga holiday in Marrakech?

Spring-time in Marrakech is a delight, with average day-time temperatures of 25-30 degrees celcius, and ten hours' sunshine.

And with no jet-lag, no time difference and a flying time from London (with Easyjet, BA or Ryanair) of just over three hours, getting there is easy.

Our host Riad

We are taking exclusive hire of one of our favourite Marrakech-centre Riads: a beautiful, friendly old mansion, designed - as with all traditional Moroccan Riads - around a central courtyard: the setting for our twice-daily yoga classes, as well as a fabulous chill-out spot for afternoon mint tea!

Our Riad is in the heart of the evocative Marrakech medina, yet a sanctuary of peace and quiet. It has just five lovely, individually designed rooms, a large roof terrace (brilliant for sun-bathing, reading or snoozing) and a small roof-top plunge pool. 

It is no exaggeration to say that this is the most tranquil of all the Marrakech-centre Riads we have come across, mainly due to its setting next to the Royal Palace, and its surrounding gardens. Expect to wake up to birdsong!

We are also taking exclusive hire of the next-door Riad, which is smaller, though equally charming, and also has its own roof terrace, similarly lovely and peaceful. In total, we will take a maximum of 10 guests.

In common with the best Riads, service is warm, efficient and friendly, with our Riad's owners experienced at hosting groups, and also keen yoga practitioners!

Retreat format and schedule

Easter yoga retreat - Bedroom at the Riad
We aim to strike a balance between down-time and relaxation during this special Easter yoga holiday, together with the excitement of staying in the heart of one of the world's most evocative cities.

All yoga classes and activities on this retreat outlined below are optional.

Daily morning yoga will be at about 8.30-10am, after which we will enjoy a buffet brunch.

Then, the whole day is your own (to explore the souks, or sunbathe on the roof terrace), until tea and cakes at 4pm, and the evening yoga and meditation class at around 5pm.

Dinner will be served at around 7.30pm each evening, and we have left one evening free for you to find your own restaurant.

We have arranged for each guest to have a complimentary hour's on-site massage, and have also organised a half-day walking tour of Marrakech, focusing on the salient cultural sites.

The cost of the holiday includes:

easter 2014 morocco marrakech yoga retreat holiday - stunning bathrooms
- Five nights' charming accommodation
- Two daily 90-minute classes: a morning hatha flow yoga class, and a gentle restorative yoga and meditation session
- Daily brunch
- Four evening vegetarian meals
- A massage
- Half-day guided walking tour of the famous Marrakech medina
- Afternoon tea and cake
- Fruit, tea and coffee before morning yoga

If you choose, you can book additional treatments (a massage, for example) at your own expense, and may also decide to book extra excursions.

On the other hand, the chance to rest, read and soak in the atmosphere may provide the greater lure (and need). The choice is entirely yours!

Yoga and meditation sessions

The twice-daily yoga and meditation classes will be suitable for all levels, from beginners through to experienced students.

The small group numbers ensure scope for plenty of individual attention.

The morning class will be dynamic hatha flow yoga, with different options given for different levels of experience.

The evening session will be a much gentler, more meditative combination of yoga and meditation. Please bring a yoga mat and blanket!
