about this retreat
Spanning over 7 days + 6 nights in 2 unique venues, we’ll shift into a deeper state of presence in exotic Marrakech, Morocco.
Slow down + be enchanted by Moroccan simplicities like hearing the beautiful call to prayer, sipping fragrant mint tea + relaxing with an ancient hammam spa ritual.
PART 1 - PLAY (days 1-4)
The first 3 days of the retreat will be hosted in a chic private riad with pool, right in the heart of the medina, where the soul can enjoy some PLAY.
Guided meditations start our mornings, followed by uniquely curated yoga + movement classes.
Afternoons in the medina can be spent bartering in the famous souks, visiting the sites or just meditating by the pool or rooftop terrace.
As the evening approaches, we'll head out into the medina + beyond to experience Marrakech’s nightlife, healthy gastronomic delights, ethical desert camel rides + rich culture before we end the night with more healing yogic practices + relaxation.
While staying in the medina of Marrakech, we'll begin our wellness journey by complimenting our daily yoga + meditation with some detoxing heat therapy. Guests will experience an invigorating + steamy Hammam treatment, traditional to the region. This is the first session of hydrotherapy, where we explore the healing powers of heat + exfoliation.
PART 2 - PRANA (days 4-7)
We'll then journey out of the medina + into the dreamy landscape of Marrakech for the latter 4 days of the retreat. Here, guests can escape the chaos of urban life + unplug in a serene desert oasis at the foot of the snowcapped Atlas Mountains. Our focus will be on doing the deep self-work through yoga, movement, meditative + breathwork practices without distraction. Here, we bring our attention back to PRANA.
Participants will be steeping in meaningful self-work while being surrounded by peaceful + tranquil surroundings for the remainder of the retreat. Guests can swim in the pools while admiring the contemporary minimalism + architectural splendour of the property against the backdrop of expansive desert + mountain scenery. After a few days in the busy medina, this new locale will be a welcome change to help facilitate a deeper state of consciousness + connection to self + nature.
Mornings here will be spent being guided through lovingly tailored yogic + wellness programs designed with purpose + intention. Guests can then choose to enjoy a healthy breakfast or challenge themselves with supported fasting.
During the afternoons, you can relax or choose to book a one-on-one bodywork session.
The cool desert evenings will wind down with delicious healthy meals prepared by our own chef.
Ceremonies + rituals cap the nights off along with meditations by the fire, while sipping on heart-opening ceremonial cacao under the desert stars.
The second part of our hydrotherapy includes nervous system regulating exercises using breathwork with cold therapy ice baths + the WIMHOF METHOD. A challenging yet rewarding experience that gives you the tools to help regulate your nervous system, clear blockages + improve mental health. (Daily cold showers leading up to the ice bath are recommended)
