  • Yoga deck

You’ll be staying at a boutique hotel held exclusively for your group. It sits on 8.5 acres with a large turquoise pool, yoga pavilion, and beautiful gardens with meandering pathways. A designer plus architect husband and wife team created this unique, highly-curated, hand-built property that is truly one-of-a-kind.

All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and can be set up as two twins or as one king bed (perfect for couples). This is a boutique retreat experience with no more than 15 total guests.

Program

Why travel with Above Yoga? Maybe places like Morocco have always been on your “must-see” list but you aren’t sure where to start planning a trip there? You could scour Instagram for inspiration, read countless blogs about what to do and how to dress while you’re there, spend hours scrolling through TripAdvisor reviews on hotels - or you could skip all that and have it all planned for you.

That’s where Above Yoga comes in! A month before the adventure, you’ll receive a detailed itinerary, a suggested packing list, and full information about how you’ll be picked up from the airport. From the day you sign up, you’ll have constant support and communication for this retreat. Let someone else who has just traveled to this destination (and scouted 7 different retreat properties to pick the best one for you) handle all the logistics and planning for you. You just sign up, pack up, and go!

Move through any stale energy and get ready to take on a day of adventure through daily morning Vinyasa flow yoga practices, taught by caring, experienced instructors. On select evenings, you will also have slower paced yoga practices, meditation, and mindfulness work. All necessary yoga mats and props are provided.

Typical day schedule

  • 07:30 - 08:45 Sunrise Vinyasa flow
  • 09:30 - 10:30 Healthy breakfast
  • 11:00 - 16:00 Group excursion (e.g. hiking, shopping in the medina, spa, etc.), lunch, free time by the pool
  • 17:45 - 19:00 Gentle yoga, meditation or mindfulness, or other evening activity
  • 19:30 Hearty vegetarian dinner

All group meals, activities, and excursions are completely optional. You can participate in as much or as little as you’d like!

Included excursions

  • Spend an afternoon off-site exploring the slower pace in the Atlas Mountains and enjoy lunch near the foot of the tallest peak in North Africa, surrounded by beautiful gardens and large terraces that offer unparalleled views of the surrounding mountains. Enjoy a picturesque and accessible hike nearby after lunch.
  • Meander through Marrakech's medinas and souqs on a guided tour of the world-famous markets and shopping areas that dreams are made of!
  • Visit the stunning and colorful garden, of Jardin Majorelle as well as the adjacent Yves Saint Laurent Museum (as the famous French designer spent much of his time in the city, both are considered “must-dos” for first-time visitors to Marrakech).
  • Learn about Moroccan spices, cooking techniques, and dishes like the tajine and how to make traditional Moroccan mint tea through an off-site hands-on cooking class and organic garden tour.

Retreat location

This holiday will take place in Marrakech, Morocco. Retreat into exotic luxury with a one-of-a-kind property just outside of the world-famous bustling city of Marrakech. An oasis in the vast and breathtaking desert landscape of Morocco. This beautiful property is about 20 minutes outside of the hectic city center and is nestled in an olive grove with incredible views of the Atlas Mountains. A perfect respite to return to for rest and reflection after a day filled with cultural adventures.

The property has a stunning pool, an upscale fully enclosed 'Berber-style' tent for both yoga and a separate one for one-of-a-kind authentic dining experiences. Accommodations are in uniquely designed bedrooms set across two pavilion buildings on the property, as well as two luxurious bungalows. All bedrooms and living areas on the property have been designed to the most intricate detail with local fabrics, and with elements from Moroccan artisans. It’s like living inside a vibrant museum.
