september 12-20, 2017
a luxurious yoga retreat set both in the dusty desert outside of marrakech and in the bustle of the vibrant pink city.
come sip sweet Berbere tea and allow the magic of Marrakech to infuse your yoga journey with curiosity and self discovery. join us on an 8-night 9-day retreat to the mystical country of Morocco, where we'll be expanding our yoga practice and discovering the world around us, all with a focus on the elements of connection. although we'll be doing lots of exploring, the main purpose of this trip is to reconnect to nature, community, and yourself through the practice of yoga. as such, we will be offering two practices per day: a powerful flow in the mornings, and a restorative flow at night. there will be frequent opportunities for group meditation, as well as optional workshops to break down the elements of practice.
this once-in-a-lifetime experience has been carefully curated to take you out of your day-to-day routine and remind you of the beauty in the world, as well as in yourself. it begins in Marrakech, Morocco on September 12th 2017, and ends on the 20th.
we'll start our journey with two nights completely unplugged in the stone desert a half hour outside of the city. the gorgeous "glamping" at Scarabeo Camp will be everything you need to detox from the hectic world at home and reconnect with yourself and the world around you... and when by unplugged, we really mean unplugged. one of the best parts of the camp is that there is no power, and no internet, so more time for conversation and contemplation! our time here will include a mini-workshop on journaling, and will provide you the time and space you need to truly create a personal self reflection and mediation practice, as well as community-building events like camel rides, camp fires, and candlelit dinners under the moroccan stars. desert sunrise practices and late night conversations under the desert sky, this time is intended to truly re-connect us with nature and with breath.

from our peaceful desert camp, we'll head straight into the heart of the pink city, Marrakech itself, for six nights. our days here will be spent in the beautiful hustle and bustle of the lively city, and ending with quiet rooftop dinners at the serene Le Riad Berbere. this place is truly an oasis, placed directly in the middle of the beautiful old town it is a rose-scented paradise full of tea, massage, and plenty of traditional poufs to lounge on. the Riad (traditional moroccan house) is small and intimate, perfect for resting and relaxation after days of sightseeing. we've carved out plenty of time to spend solo wandering and exploring the traditional moroccan hammams, but also have group expeditions planned to some of the "must see" sights, delicious restaurants, and lots of time to venture into the souks to work on our bargaining skills - definitely plan to come home with a moroccan rug or two. nights will include bottles of wine and homemade moroccan dinners, as well as an opportunity to learn the art of moroccan cooking from a true expert. in these city days, we'll explore the art of connecting with community - both our own, and the community around us, while at the same time creating space amidst the chaos to ground down in connection with ourselves and our practice.
