In Marrakech you are accommodated right in the middle of the Medina, Marrakech’s old part of the city, in one of our carefully chosen, familiar Partner Riads. Cool and comfortable, beautiful and absolutely quiet though right in the center, the chosen Riad provides you with the fitting environment to dust off, relax, enjoy the sun and a glass of Moroccan tea any time of the day.

And of course serves us comfortably for our daily yoga practice – if the weather allows, on the Riad’s rooftop.

Regular accommodation happens to be in shared, spacious triple rooms (same gender) with separated beds, ensuite bathrooms, and free wifi access. Single or double/twin accommodation is bookable upon request / availability and with subject to surcharges.

Le Douar des Arganiers in Sidi Kaouki, not far from Essaouira, is decorated modernly with little touches of Moroccan design. Designed by Moha Agouni, a young Moroccan architect, the house was entirely built with natural stones, local materials, and traditional techniques. In full harmony with the landscape, le Douar des Arganiers is a mix of modern and Moroccan architecture.

In the garden, you will find long chairs and space to relax or take a sunbath. In a cool and relaxing environment, the house offers spacious common areas and terraces, as well as in total 4 large suites (30 meter square for the smallest). Located in the countryside, in a peaceful area, le Douar des Arganiers is only at a 10 minutes stroll to the village and beach or a couple of minutes by car.

Katrin is particularly fascinated by the healing power of yoga, which is created by the combination of breath, mind and movement and, besides physical relaxation, leads to inner peace and serenity. In her clearly structured and partly demanding classes, Katrin attaches great importance to giving each student sufficient space for his or her individual needs and to discover the many facets of yoga for themselves. Katrin teaches a powerful Vinyasa Yoga at various studios in Berlin.

Retreat location

Tafedna is a small fishing and farming village, South of Essaouira and North of Agadir. Stretching over two miles, the Bay of Tafedna boasts a soft, sandy beach tucked among the Argan cliffs that make any encounter with the waves of the Atlantic uniquely memorable, a far cry from the overcrowded shores of elsewhere. Only the seasoned traveler is familiar with the beauty and tranquility of this region, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the High Atlas mountains of Morocco. And few people dwell in this vast expanse where the vegetation and argan trees hold sway.
