This is your opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and retreat to your Moroccan home away from home!
Join Good Yoga Life in Morocco for a 4 night stay in the beautiful sister villa's Magtafa and Kalliste, just outside Marrakesh.
Step away from your daily routine and into pure Moroccan luxury with yoga classes twice a day, daily meditation, delicious home-made Moroccan vegetarian food, pool time in the sunshine and an amazing opportunity to fully switch off in the luxury of your new Moroccan home.
Our Retreat to Revive yoga holiday includes a day trip to Marrakesh to explore the colourful and bustling depths of the Medina and the opportunity to pamper yourself with optional rejuvenating massage and beauty treatments at the villa's on-site spa.
Our daily yoga classes with Good Yoga Life teachers Kelly and Emily will take place in the morning and late afternoon. We'll start our day with an energising vinyasa class, moving in time with the breath, and strengthening and stretching every part of the body. The perfect start to the day!
The afternoon sessions will be a mixture of workshops, where you'll get the opportunity to increase your understanding of yoga postures and get deeper into the practice, and more calming and grounding practices to wind down from the day. You'll float out of these sessions feeling inspired, relaxed and renewed.
Expect to head home at the end of the retreat with a greater understanding of yoga, meditation and breathing techniques that will help you to keep your yoga glow and zen vibe flowing.
Enjoy exceptional Moroccan meals carefully prepared by our cook with daily freshly and locally sourced seasonal produce and ingredients. Our hosts are renowned for their delicious food and hospitality, so you can rest assured you will be well fed.
The generous Moroccan breakfasts will be served straight after morning yoga, after you've worked up an appetite on your mat. It includes a feast of seasonal fruit salads, yoghurts, freshly-baked homemade Moroccan 'Msemen', crepes, eggs, omelettes and frittatas, served with freshly squeezed orange juice, Moroccan mint tea and coffee.
A light lunch of Moroccan salads, gazpacho or healthy vegetable soup will be served early afternoon, along with snacks of fruits and nuts available throughout the day.
Enjoy home-made vegetarian Tajines, Hariri soup, vegetable gratins and Moroccan salads followed by Moroccan desserts, created by our in-house chef using only the best local and seasonal ingredients.
Vegan and gluten free is catered for.
