Tonic Retreats is delighted to announce a collaboration with acclaimed yoga teacher, Scott Johnson from Stillpoint Yoga, London to bring you a Mysore style yoga and mindfulness retreat in magical Marrakech this autumn. Re-energize with a healthy dose of yoga, gourmet food, and adventure. At the end of the retreat, they aim to leave you feeling restored, invigorated, and inspired - with a few new friends along the way.
During this retreat, you will be staying in a traditional boutique riad in the Marrakech Medina. When you book the shared twin room package, you will be paired with a retreat participant with the same sex.
Each early morning and late afternoon, there will be mindfulness meditation sessions so you can meet different parts of the day with intention and awareness.
The yoga schedule will be based on the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga method. The morning asana class will be Mysore assisted self-practice with Scott and Tonic teacher, Pip Taverner. Knowledge of this method would be beneficial. However, Scott will also offer an extra class in the morning for beginners who wish to learn this method of practicing yoga from the beginning.
The Mysore assisted self-practice class allows you to develop your own personal practice under the guidance of an experienced teacher, while practicing in a room with others. You get to have a one-to-one experience in a class with Scott tailoring the practice to you, your body, and your life. You will leave the retreat with a deeper understanding and experience of how you fully connect to your yoga practice.
The afternoons will have workshops based on the techniques and principles of Ashtanga yoga and mindfulness. You will be looking deeply into how these disciplines interact, how they deepen your personal yoga practices, and how the practice filters into your life.
This retreat will be eligible for those looking for CPD contact hours through Yoga Alliance UK. It is designed to be suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners and the group may be split accordingly to accommodate different abilities.
You will have a complimentary guided souk tour during this yoga retreat.

He has undergone extensive training with John Scott and Lucy Crawford since 2001 and is a graduate of their highly regarded two-month 200-hour teacher training programme in 2009.

He teaches with the greatest of love and respect to the lineage of Sri K Pattabhi Jois, which he is connected to through his teacher and friend John Scott.
As an experienced Ashtanga and Vinyasa teacher with a knack for pitching, Pip's sessions at just the right level of challenging. Pip will help you get the most out of your daily yoga practice. Thanks to her passion for electronic and house music, none of her classes would be complete without a curated soundtrack to get the vibes flowing. Trained by Brian Cooper of Union Yoga (200-hour RYT), she has recently practiced under the guidance of John Scott, David Keil, and Dena Kingsberg, sharing their ethos and teachings in her classes. She is warm, witty, and is great to be around.
