Some questions answered about our yoga retreat in Marrakech.
Why I organise a yoga retreat in Marrakech.
Because I live in Morocco! It’s so nice to share the beauty of this magical country in a safe and easy way.
Safe and easy as everything is included on my yoga holidays and retreats. From the minute you land at the Menara Airport, till the minute you leave, we take care of all logistics. You can just sit back and enjoy the Moroccan hospitality.
Over the past 6 years, I ran over 20 retreats in Morocco and over 50 yoga retreats worldwide so you can rest assured that everything will be organized into perfection. Not the easiest thing to do in a country like Morocco.
What is so unique about this yoga holiday?
This yoga retreat in Marrakech has it all. On top of a beautiful venue with a pool and gardens, rooms that are nicely decorated with an eye for detail and roof top yoga, this retreat offers more.
One day we will go for a wonderful walk in the High Atlas Mountains where you can have lunch with a view on the Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa.
Another day, we will dive into the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. With a professional local guide, you will see the highlights and hidden gems of this magical city.
The food is an aspect I just have to mention as well.
“Healthy Moroccan cuisine.”
Tell me where in Morocco they can cater effortlessly for vegan, vegetarian and basically most allergies you can imagine. I have brought in super chefs like Hayley North, Beth El Rikabi and Karima Maruan to show the local staff what ‘healthy’ looks like. Consequently, every single meal is now something to look forward to!
What is the best time to visit Marrakech?
Except for July and August, when temperatures can go up to 45 degrees Celsius and more, Marrakech is charming year round. Most of the year, it’s nice and warm and I have organised retreats in all months of the year already.
My personal favourite time of year for a yoga retreat in Marrakech is March, September and October.
During the winter months, November till February, it can be very chilly in the mornings and evenings but gentle and mild when the sun is out. The occasional rain shower is to be expected mostly in these months.
Is Morocco safe (for a solo (female) traveller)?
Morocco is a big country and I can only inform you about the places that I know well. I live in Essaouira, a small fishermen’s town south of Marrakech and I feel safe at all times. Our yoga holiday is in Marrakech and also there, I feel safe.
I dress a bit conservative (shoulders and legs covered most of the time) and I stay out of trouble. You do get a lot of ‘hello’s’ and there’s a bit of staring so if you consider this as harassment, then yes, there will be some form of harassment during your stay.
Terrorist wise, I have no idea if Morocco is safe. I can only ask you where the last attack was. Not in Morocco.
Personally, I believe that we are not any less safe in Morocco than anywhere else on this beautiful globe right now.
How do I get there?
Fly into Marrakech, to the Menara airport. Our venue is an easy 25 minutes drive from the city centre, the medina.
From the US, Canada or Middle East, it might be easier to fly into Casablanca and take a taxi from there (instead of a lay over and an extra flight). We’ll pick you up, no worries!
How do I book?
If you’re up for a cultural experience, yoga and meditation in a wonderful venue?
If you would like to go home after a week a fun adventure, feeling rejuvenated, lighter and fully relaxed?
