MMM Marrakesh, an ancient city of weathered pink buildings, romantic restaurants, museums, palaces, bustling souks (markets) and upscale shops. It’s hard to believe that Quaryati is located at just half an hour drive from the Medina. You will find yourself in a different world.
Each air-conditioned room and suite has a traditional Moroccan-style decor and furniture. Some of the rooms include a private balcony and views of the High Atlas. “Just the right place to really unwind, forget the Stress and Relax”!
Rooms are spacious, well equipped and all have ensuite bathrooms.
The owner of Quaryati, Françoise, has an incredible eye for detail so all that you could wish for is already there.
Guests will not only enjoy the grounds of Quaryati, the outdoor areas including a lovely pool, patio, private terraces, but this retreat includes some amazing day-trips to the surrounding sites.
A guided day in Marrakesh, an awesome tour exploring the nearby Atlas Mountains, and more!
Lovely food is part of the yoga retreat experience. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all included during this retreat.
The cuisine in Morocco is absolutely delicious. Using fresh ingredients from the on-site organic gardens or local markets. We can cater for gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian. There’s also the option to eat meat/fish on some days. We have brought our own chefs in to train the local staff and can now truly say that our retreats will bring you vibrant food!
During this week, you can taste every single dish that Morocco is famous for. From the typical tajines to pastilla and harera soup to delicious desserts. All freshly made, with care and attention.
If you have an allergy to a particular ingredient, let us know, and a separate dish will be made for you.
No alcohol is served during the week at our shared lunches and dinners and we would appreciate if you do not bring your own wine to consume at the dinner table.
On Friday evening, there is the possibility to have alcohol during our closing dinner.

Your host and yoga teacher, Rachel Bonkink
I will be your personal yoga and meditation teacher and, travel guide on this yoga retreat in Morocco. Excited to show you why I decided to live in this magical country for four years!
You will go home after this week, with a mental back pack, filled with practical tools to help you maintain and cultivate Balance in your daily life.
As the owner of Revealing Vajra, I teach on many yoga retreats per year, online retreats and in real life. All carefully designed by myself to have you feel completely relaxed and rejuvenated afterwards. I am teaching for several years now and I do what I do because it is who I am – it is what I love to do. Connecting and inspiring people in anyway I can.
THESE YOGA HOLIDAYS ARE DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER HOLIDAY OUT THERE!
That’s quite a statement … I know… But, what I bring across is so much more than bending forwards and backwards. 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, real deadlines, handling huge budgets-with a lot of zeros, pleasing your C-level customers, keeping your corporate tribe happy- our tribe had 100+ people on the payroll, … the works….
Combine this with many years as a personal life coach, my shiatsu practises and ongoing yoga teacher trainings and personal retreats….
And you get someone in front of you who is able to organise retreats that are very different.
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 70 of my own yoga retreats – that gives my yoga holidays and retreats a very POWERFUL edge.
I will help you to 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.
Rachel’s retreat is exceptional.
She has taken time to choose the perfect location and put together a week that is restful, rejuvenating and results in a very complete and satisfying week.
Really enjoyed experiencing various yoga styles and learning from her. She is a very kind and giving soul. We had a great time and would highly recommend one of her retreats. I plan to come again!

Different Yoga Styles
I teach different styles of yoga, and offer several guidelines /techniques for meditation during this week.
Starting slowly with Hatha, Yin, Yin/Yang and Restorative. Building it up towards a more Vinyasa inspired class. At least one class will focus on alignment and one class is Kundalini yoga.
All levels are welcome, I know how to adjust all poses.
For me, it’s important that you (learn how to) FEEL in class. That you know WHAT you are actually doing in a pose.
That you can find focus and stillness in a posture.
This means some classes will be very tough (and very inspiring 🙂 ) if you are used to fast paced Vinyasa classes.
I don’t take life all too seriously, nor do I see yoga as the most serious thing in the world. It’s very possible that I even make a joke here or there during our classes together…
Pranayama (breathing), meditation and yoga philosophy are part of all my lessons.
Asana wise, I started my own journey about 15 years ago with Ashtanga, got very inspired by Iyengar trained teachers and currently enjoy receiving guidance from teachers like Paul Grilley, Alan Wallace and Jack Kornfield. Every year, I follow several (silent) retreats and teacher trainings to recharge, to learn and to make sure my lessons and style keep being different, every single time.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org or just give me a call on +32 476 204 121. Alternatively, you can use this form to contact me.

What to bring on this yoga retreat in Morocco
Part of the anticipation and enjoyment of the trip is considering what you are going to be doing and planning and packing. This includes happy anticipation and mindful preparation for the nice retreat you are going to participate in.
Main thing is not to worry, simply enjoy the preparations.
Don’t worry about wearing the same outfit more than once. This is a retreat where you do not need to dress to impress. Wear whatever feels comfortable. Don’t worry about forgetting an important item either, you’re going to Morocco, so practically anything can be bought for you, should this be necessary.
Before departure, we will send you a list of things to bring and things you can leave at home 🙂
