During this retreat, you will be accommodated at Kasbah du Toubkal and Tigmi in Marrakesh-Safi, Morocco. The first three nights will be spent at the Kasbah and the last four nights will be at Tigmi.
The bedrooms at the Kasbah and Tigmi are authentically Moroccan with generous comfortable beds, cool sheets, hand-woven covers and cushions, large bathrooms as well as a traditional seated area which can double as extra sleeping space. Many of the bedrooms have fireplaces and private terraces. Tigmi and the Kasbah also have their own hammam, spa treatments and massage therapists on hand.
Kasbah has its own traditional Hammam. The Hamman is free to be enjoyed after yoga or a walk and is DIY in contrast to the Hammam at Tigmi where you are bathed and scrubbed by a therapist. At Tigmi, there are a few bicycles available for the more energetic to explore the local area. A daily guided walk is included each day while at the Kasbah and more adventurous longer treks can also be arranged.
'Tigmi' means 'my house' in the local Berber dialect. It was built in 1840 for the local judge. As with many North African dwellings, the interior is all with a step inside and the peaceful beauty of Tigmi is revealed. The first impression is a lovely garden laid to lawns and paths with banana palms, citrus as well as olive trees and a swimming pool with soft jade-coloured water. Fifteen tortoises live in this garden and add to the unhurried feel of this tranquil oasis.
At Tigmi, there are two swimming pools, one of which is heated to 26 degrees Celsius throughout the year and one natural unheated with no chlorine. There are sun-loungers around the pool and shaded areas in the gardens which furnished with comfortable divans for those of you who prefer to laze around out of the sun.
You will have two yoga classes each day and a guided walk at Kasbah du Toubkal. In the morning, you will have a 90-minute practice including meditation and pranayama. This will be followed by breakfast. A guided walk will be on offer each afternoon and there will also be a Gentle yoga session before dinner. The outside yoga space at the Kasbah takes in the mountain views while enjoying the fresh and pure mountain air.
At Tigmi, you will have two yoga classes daily with one yoga-free day. Each morning, you will have a yoga class that includes meditation and pranayama practices. There will be a second yoga class in the afternoon. The classes will be suitable for all levels and experience. The yoga space is a covered roof terrace with stunning views of Marrakesh across the plains.
Whilst staying at the Kasbah you can enjoy walking in the Atlas mountains, visiting the village of Imlil or relaxing on a roof terrace with a book in hand enjoying the views. During your stay at Tigmi outside of yoga the rest of the day can be spent lazing Moroccan style - lounging, reading or swimming in one of the two pools, playing backgammon or chess in one of the many gardens and courtyards or popping into Marrakesh on the hotel's free mini-bus service.
Take the chance to experience Atlas Mountain guided walk each afternoon while staying at Kasbah du Toubkal.

Raquel Alves started teaching in 1992. She is qualified with Para Yoga (Rod Stryker), BWY and Sivananda. Originally from Africa, she now lives in the UK. Her teachings draw from many styles and have a strong pull towards Tantra but call on her years as an Ashtanga practitioner as well as her years doing Iyengar yoga. She also loves to incorporate restorative relaxation techniques and meditation and on occasion chanting that is accompanied by the harmonium.
You will meditate and practice yoga at Kasbah du Toubkal and Tigmi in Marrakesh-Safi, Morocco. Kasbah du Toubkal is perched on a great rock outcrop above the village of Imlil in the High Atlas mountains. Just 90 minutes from Marrakech, the Kasbah is set within the Toubkal National Park below the towering flanks of Jbel Toubkal which is the highest mountain in North Africa. It is a place of outstanding natural beauty, peace and seclusion.
The Kasbah has panoramic views of the mountains, valleys and waterfalls that can be reached by a 15-minute short walk or mule ride from the village of Imlil. Meanwhile, Tigmi is situated 24 kilometers south of Marrakesh and is set within a magical desert landscape. On the brow of the Berber hamlet of Tagadert, its labyrinth of narrow alleyways and flat-roofed village houses has a timeless biblical feel. Outside of Tigmi there are local sporting activities such as horse riding and golf.
The meals at the Kasbah and Tigmi include a breakfast of delicious homemade juices, honey, yogurts, pancakes, cheeses, locally made bread, fresh fruit and cereals that will be served after class. There will be lunch and all evening meals are traditionally North African dishes with wonderful vegetarian meals also prepared on request.
