WILD TIMES AWAY: MOROCCO YOGA RETREAT

We're following the sunshine to Marrakech in the Spring! Join us March 4-11th 2023 for 7 whole nights of blue skies, souk exploring, a sunset desert dinner, a hike in the Atlas mountains and more. 

We are staying in a beautiful place, tucked away from the hubbub of Marrakech on the outskirts of a quiet Berber village. Meandering corridors and courtyard paths lead to authentic, comfortable rooms. We will be practicing yoga on the rooftop or in the large, light studio, we have two pools to float around in, secret terraces, beautiful gardens and lots of quiet corners for relaxing and reading. There is also an on-site spa, offering massages, hammams and other treatments.

We have included two adventures - a sunset dinner in Agafay desert and a hike and picnic in the mountains. Also including a traditional hammam experience for every guest.

£1175pp for a twin room or £1525pp for solo occupancy. There are a limited number of suites available on request. First come first serve.

Highlights include:

  • Daily vinyasa, yin & meditation with Jenny Clark, founder of The Wild Times
  • 7 nights accommodation in a beautiful traditional retreat hotel
  • A three course sunset dinner in the desert
  • A traditional Moroccan hammam session
  • A picnic and hike in the Atlas Mountains 
  • Delicious meals and refreshments
  • A trip to the souks of Marrakech

Do

Settle in and start the retreat with mint tea and a delicious dinner on Saturday. Our first few days are all about grounding and resting, before adventuring into the Atlas Mountains on Tuesday. Wednesday includes an optional trip to the souks for shopping, mint teas on rooftops and exploring the square. Thursday evening will take us to the rocky desert of Agafay, for a sunset dinner under canvas.

There will usually be two yoga classes a day, including dynamic vinyasa in the morning, calming yin before dinner and a couple of restorative yoga nidras (sleepy yoga!) before bed. The yoga sessions are themed around the natural elements, bringing the qualities and strengths of nature into your practice and life.

All activities are optional but encouraged, so you can nap, read or swim and explore - it’s completely up to you. There are free shuttles from our venue to Marrakech three times a day if you'd like to explore more. Otherwise, have a massage, lounge around the pool or a small siesta...

Stay

Our beautiful venue is a haven of peace and quiet that will have you feeling relaxed as soon as you arrive. 

Set in the tranquility of a Berber Village with a backdrop of the Atlas Mountains and the distant twinkle of the medina, meandering flower-lined paths lead through scented gardens and secret courtyards to exquisite A/C ensuite bedrooms, all beautifully furnished in the local style.

Rooms will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis. They are a mix of twins and doubles, and there are also a small number of larger suites available, email hello@thewildtimes.co for availability. 

Eat

Breakfast includes delicious home-made juices, honey, yoghurts, pancakes, cheeses, locally made breads, fresh fruit and cereals will be served after the morning yoga class.

Then we'll have a healthy and generous salad buffet lunch. Evening meals will be traditional North African dishes, with vegetarian or vegan options available on request.

There will be fruit and a hot drink station for you to help yourself to throughout, with herbal teas, coffee, fresh mint, lemon and ginger. 

Location: Morocco

Marrakech is a particularly amazing, colourful place. It has everything from fashionista Yves Saint Laurent's beloved gardens to Jemaa el Fnaa, the ancient square that was a trading ground from bedouins from the Sahara desert, to the busy, vibrant souks, peaceful hidden riads and rooftop restaurants. 

Our retreat place is just 20 minutes away from the hubbub of Marrakech, in a tiny Berber village with views of the Atlas Mountains. The desert, with camels and sunset dinners is half an hour away, as are the beautiful, rugged Atlas Mountains.

(I spent the first 7 months of the first lockdown living out in Morocco, and it's a country I love and keep returning to! It is so colourful, beautiful and varied, with over 300 days of sunshine a year. - Jen)

There are direct flights from the UK to Marrakech starting at £74 return with British Airways for these exact dates (as of 5th November). I'd also recommend perhaps staying for a night either side in a riad in the medina to experience a little more of Marrakech if you like! We can give you recommendations.
