This is my third yoga retreat with Rachel!
I loved every minute of it! The group of people was amazing, the food delicious, the venue stunning and the yoga perfect. I truly think that Rachel’s yoga retreats should be prescribed by doctors and taken care of by health insurance! Thank you!


We start each day with yoga, pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation.
After savasana, we enjoy breakfast in the sun and you might have a nice hammam, part of your package of course!

In the afternoon you will have some time for yourself, take a dip in the pool, enjoy a rejuvenating massage or read that book that’s been waiting for you for a while.


One day we will go an explore the Atlas Mountains, having lunch in the most typical place you can imagine.

A day tour to Marrakech is also on the program. For sure we’ll show you the famous Djemaa el-Fna and have a mint tea whilst the square gets to lively, and the souks, but we’ll also take you to the less known spots of this amazing city.

There’s a silence day on the program: Let the silence dazzle you and experience its strength. Many people are hesitant about this part of the program but afterwards, our participants often tell us that it was one their favorite moments of the holiday.

Sunset is the time for the evening yoga classes. They will balance body and mind and above all, will give you a deep sense of peace and rest. After class you can enjoy, another wonderful dinner.

This is your time, your holiday, so if you want to skip a class or a workshop that is absolutely fine. Although we believe you will find the program stimulating and fun, primarily we want you to relax and enjoy yourself.

Here is an example of a typical schedule. We like to be open to the unexpected and our schedule can change according to weather conditions, overall group preferences, etc.

07.30  Hatha yoga class
09.00 Wonderful Breakfast
11.00  Your Included Massage
13.00  Revitalising Lunch
14.00  Time for the Pool, Relaxing, a Stroll in the neighbourhood
17.30  Yin yoga class
19.30  Heartwarming Dinner
20:30 Free time

Everything That Makes A Yoga Holiday Special, The Massage, The Excursion, all Meals, The Extra Classes: It is ALL Included!



It’s hard to believe that our venue is located at just half an hour drive from the Medina but you’ll find yourself in a different world.

Incredible views on the High Atlas Mountains, peacocks wondering and an overall tranquil feeling sets the perfect decor for  you to relax and rejuvenate.

Each room has a traditional Moroccan-style decor and furniture.
Rooms are spacious, well equipped and offer everything you need during a yoga holiday.

The gardens are lush and nothing beats a day at the pool in December!


Flights & Transfers

The sooner you book your tickets for Xmas, usually the better, price wise.
Airlines such as Transavia, Royal Air Maroc, Easyjet, Ryanair all fly to the Marrakech Airport.
There is only one airport in Marrakech, also referred to as Menara Airport or RAK.

If you’re flying from the US or Canada, you will have to fly into Casablanca.
As the connecting flights from Casablanca to Marrakech are usually delayed a lot, we actually recommend a transfer by car to Marrakech instead of flying. It’s an extra cost but it will save you a lot of time. One of our drivers can be there to pick you up, easy, safe and hassle free.

How wonderful is it to arrive and instantly meet your driver to take you to Quaryati, our home away from home for the week.
You can choose any flight that is convenient for you, we will pick you up/drop you off, at any time on the 22th and the 29th at the Marrakech Airport.

Ideally, you arrive before dinner on the 22th so before 7PM-ish. As people are flying in from all over the world, we will start our lessons on the 20th. Our closing class is on the 28th in the evening and our all inclusive package as such ends on the 29th of December, after breakfast.

If you have any questions about flights or transfers, or if you want to come earlier or leave a couple of days later; please don’t hesitate asking. My pleasure to assist !


Nutritious food is a very important part of the Revealing Vajra yoga retreat experience.

Our meals will mainly be vegetarian although you can have a fish and/or meat option every now and then. Taste and nutrition values will be maximised to the top.

You will taste all the Moroccan typical dishes, from the harira soup to tajines and the most delicious salads. The staff at Quaryati has been trained by our own chefs so they know exactly how to cater for all kinds of allergies and intolerances. Rest assured, you will eat extremely well during this week.

When we go for our walks, we enjoy simple and delicious local food in the high Atlas, with a view on the Toubkal mountain. Even on our visit to Marrakech, lunch is included and we will take you to a really great restaurant in the Medina.


Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help you grow in your own personal practice.

Our yoga retreats typically attract both people who have never done yoga before and very experienced yogis.
We usually have some yoga teachers as well, who are there to rejuvenate and enjoy the receiving part instead of the giving.
Style and class levels will be determined and adjusted to fit everyone’s needs.

We will start with gentle hatha and yin classes to start relaxing body and mind. We slow down, releasing tension and tightness in shoulders, hips, the back, face, abdomen, … Taking our time to unravel and soften, to diffuse the knots in body and mind.

Slowly building up towards a more Vinyasa inspired class. There’s always a class that focuses more on alignment and a Kundalini class.

Your Yoga Teacher and Host, Rachel Bonkink

rachel bonkink yoga retreats revealing vajraWhat I bring across is much more than bending forwards and backwards in a pretty location.

As I have a worked both as a COO and consultant before founding Revealing Vajra, I know what stress is. I know what deadlines are, and I know how much you need your me time to relax.

It is this unique combination – a deep understanding of corporate life and the corporate ladder, alongside a vast experience of mind-body trainings and many personal retreats, plus the expertise of organising over 60 of my own yoga retreats – that gives my yoga holidays and retreats a very POWERFUL edge.

The program I offer will completely relax and rejuvenate you.

On my yoga retreats, you will focus on enjoying your practice and gaining new insights into your body, mind and the yoga philosophy.

To me, these holidays are so much more than just a getaway. These retreats can be truly life changing and empower you to become a more healthy and happy person.

Asana wise, I started my own journey about 10 years ago with Ashtanga. Later on, I got very inspired by Iyengar trained teachers like Gustavo Ponce and John Stirk. Over the years, I’ve taken several 100 and 200 hour teacher trainings in India, the Netherlands, Thailand, the UK and the US. Currently, I enjoy receiving teachings by Paul Grilley, Sarah Powers, Bernie Clark and Alan Wallace. Every year, I go on at least two to three (silent) retreats or trainings myself to recharge, rejuvenate and broaden my knowledge on yoga and meditation.

I am happy to discuss your expectations and see if this holiday is right for you. I welcome any and all questions or concerns you may have and invite you to email me at: or just give me a call on +32 476 204 121.


Prices include full board accommodation, all drinks, yoga lessons, a workshop, a guided tour in the Atlas Mountains, a guided day in Marrakech, including entrance fees, one full-length treatment and one hammam.

If you need a getaway, this is it!
This Christmas Retreat in Morocco was the best thing I have done for myself in a long time. Perfect blend of yoga, meditation and relaxation. My body and mind feel so much lighter and the tension in my back and chest is finally released after a year. Thank you, Rachel!
Looking forward to my next retreat with you, just not sure when yet!

This is my second retreat with Rachel and once again, I really enjoyed myself. The venue was beautiful, the people I met were amazing, and the food was fantastic.
A great escape from the everyday life. I would definitely recommend this retreat to others!

Linda Tran, Canada

Awesome yoga retreat in a very special location close to Marrakech.
Beautiful resort where you can be social with the other yogis or find your own spot to be by yourself and can read or just relax.
Yoga on the rooftop outside, with a view on the mountains is just "breathtakingly awesome". Different kind of yoga styles, so each class is different and never boring.
I would recommend this place and yoga retreat with Rachel and would do it again. That would be my third retreat with Rachel :)

Alex, Germany

It was the perfect break form a hectic/stressful life where 'down time' is luxury. Exactly the right way to unplug from obligations, get in touch with what matters (perspective) and celebrate me! Rachel is thoughtful, caring, fun and her guidance and energy created a special space to explore ourselves.

Trust your feelings and my comments!
The whole experience has been a wonderful one.
Rachel has organised a tailor made schedule for each of the participants – different types of yoga classes, meditation, silent day, visits and track.
The experiences I shared with this group of people in a week, have been stronger than with people I meet in my daily life! I was amazed on how it is possible to connect on a different level, away from the social labels we usually introduce ourselves by – I still do not know what some of the other participants' jobs are, and honestly, I do not care – as I appreciated all of them so dearly.
Rachel made this magic happen, in her gentle and humoristic way. No pressure.
Everyone one is free to follow his/her own will, thought. At all times, Rachel has been kind, equanimous and friendly.
The mental benefits and physical well being are still lingering with me – Revealing Vajra experience has allowed me to start an inner transformation toward peace of mind and inner balance that are greats support in a busy daily life.
I am looking forward to a another retreat with this trustful teacher!

What a wonderful holiday! Rachel thought of a really great program. With lots of variety but also enough time to simply relax. We did so much more than just yoga. I will remember the lovely excursions to Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains, all so very well organised so that we could be 100% worry free. And not pay for anything extra. For sure, I will return as I became very curious to see the other Revealing Vajra locations around the world!

Wonderful retreat in a great location. I had such a good time, and I wish I was there was one more week to come! The yoga classes were creative and very interesting. After a week of practising with Rachel, I can feel the benefits of daily meditation. It helped me to create space and look at my thoughts and emotions from a distance. There is still a lot to sort out, but I feel that I am becoming stronger and with an open mind. Thank you so much for that!

Rachel is a great host and teacher. She makes everyone feel at ease and safe. The yoga sessions are suitable for all levels and you get back what you put in. I also enjoyed meeting fascinating and kind people from all over the world and diverse backgrounds. A wonderful trip!

Carole Vinycomb, UK

This retreat was excellent for people who are new to yoga as it incorporated different styles of yoga. All given in a gentle way, allowing people of varying physical ability to participate fully in all classes. The location was perfect, providing serenity and relaxation, while offering quick trips to the bustling Marrakech. I chose this retreat because it was a good combination of yoga and the opportunity to get a taste of Morocco.
Rachel’s style is very laid back and non-dogmatic, giving people the space to do whatever they enjoy and be themselves. Also, this retreat is some of the best value for money you will get on any yoga retreat!

Vania, Switzerland

I was not experienced with yoga at all, but I was looking for a structured and healthy, relaxing holiday. The retreat has surpassed my expectations. There was so much variety in the yoga and participants had varying levels of expertise. After a week, I feel relaxed and refreshed. If you want to travel solo and really unwind, Rachel’s retreats are a great way to do it!

We know that too often, you go on a retreat but then have to pay for all the nice “extras”… things like transfers, excursions, … sound familiar?

Not with us though!

We promise that everything will be included in the price.

We believe that the nice extras aren’t “optional”.

They help turn a good retreat into a great one.

We want you to have a great christmas yoga retreat!
