Detailed Description

The Moroccan landscape helps set the perfect scene for a relaxing yoga and meditative retreat. The rich culture combines with exhilarating mountains, majestic sand dunes, and luscious organic cuisine on your 9-day Morocco yoga retreat and tour. When you arrive in Marrakech, your private transfer greets you at the airport. It is easy to settle into the comforts of your historic mansion situated in the spiritual center of Marrakech. Your host welcomes you with freshly brewed tea.

The following day you wake up with a revitalizing yoga session on the rooftop terrace, which offers you a striking view of the old city. After breakfast, your guide leads you on a tour of the extraordinary city, showcasing the heritage and lively culture that continues to thrive. Rise and shine to another yoga session on the terrace, this time adding a bit of a challenge to your body. The first half of your day is at your leisure to discover the winding lanes or gardens of Marrakech before partaking in a private cooking class to unlock the secrets of the delectable traditional cuisine.

After breakfast, your private transfer escorts you into the folds of the Middle Atlas Mountains to reach the shores of Lake Bin El Ouidane. At sunset, your host leads you in a rooftop yoga session with a panorama of the lake and mountains. The next morning you take your time at breakfast and follow your guide on a hike to the valley floor to see the Cascades d’Ouzoud, a three-tiered waterfall. Next to the waterfall, you stretch your body and your soul with a challenging yoga class, followed by meditation.

Continue your spiritual discovery of Morocco by venturing into the mountains to the town of Midelt, located within view of snowcapped peaks and cedar forests. You reach the desert town of Merzouga by the afternoon, relaxing with a restorative yoga session overlooking the border of the Sahara Desert. In the morning, you join a camel caravan and climb on a camel to explore the variety of landscape in the desert, basking in two yoga sessions for the day.

The first yoga session takes place alongside Merzouga Lake, which mirrors the rising peaks of the gold sand dunes. The second session takes place outside your luxurious campground overlooking the stunning sand dunes with the sun setting on the horizon. In the morning, you wake up with a rejuvenating yoga session with the sunrise painting the landscape. After returning to Merzouga, you continue to Marrakech, stopping in the Kasbah of Ouarzazate along the way. In the morning, your private transfer meets you at the hotel and escorts you to Marrakech Menara Airport to catch your flight home.
