Breathtakingly beautiful and luxuriously designed, the living quarters where you will stay during the retreat features gorgeous fireplaces and glamorous bathrooms in each room. Each bedroom also has its own private terrace - just the right place to enjoy a minty tea or a zingy cocktail!

The entire pavilion property has been decorated with care and loaded with art, special fabrics, and exotic good stuff from all around the world. A swanky place to relax, the salon / great room has a stunning lacy plasterwork that took weeks to complete. There is also seating and dining areas for intimate discussions and cozy meals. A spiral staircase leads to a catwalk high in the air, where you can sit on vintage embroideries and admire the view.

Eat.Pray.Move will feature Julian Hyzler from Easel&Lens to combine a look at creative focus with art projects in sketching and "ifonography" (smartphone photography) throughout the week. Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare your bodies and minds to find the calm in the chaos of the sensory-overload that is Morocco and then these art projects will help you find news ways of seeing - both yoga and art working together to find focus in the many layers of smells, sites, and sounds that abound in exotic Marrakesh.

No previous art or yoga background is required to participate in this retreat. All levels are welcome and participation is voluntary. Projects and classes will be offered as a completely exploratory, unintimidating, and personal experience.

Guests will not only enjoy the grounds of Peacock Pavilions, the outdoor areas including a lovely pool, patio, private terraces, and covered yoga platform, but the retreat also includes some amazing day-trips to the surrounding sites. A guided shopping day in Marrakesh will lead guests through an introduction to souks.

A full day will be spent exploring the nearby Atlas Mountains with a base at the Kasbah Tamadot Hotel with a traditional mule trek to the nearby village of Asni followed by time at the beautiful grounds of this five-star location overlooking the vistas with a cooking demo and tasting menu dinner. An afternoon will be spent at the luxurious La Mamounia Hotel in Marrakesh enjoying the pools and an afternoon tea.

One day, you will visit Yves St. Laurent's famous Jardin Majorelle and berber museum. The final full day entails a trip to the famous Bains de Marrakesh, a luxurious spa facility, where guests can be pampered to their heart's content with a full program of various treatments. What better way to wrap up a week of yoga than a day of pure relaxation.
