    Mazy paths lined with banana palms and citrus trees lead you around the beautiful gardens.

    This retreat will take place at the Tigmi Boutique Hotel in Marrakesh, Morocco. Tigimi is tucked away from the hubbub of Marrakech on the outskirts of a traditional Moroccan Berber village. The red city, as Marrakech is known, is also near from Tigmi.

    The joy of the Marrakech region lies in its diversity, where you will revel in the colorful rush of the city souks, be inspired by the breathtaking views of the Atlas Mountains, and moved by the gentle and warm hospitality of the Berber people.

    The Marrakech region is an area influenced by east and west, by Africa and Europe. Marrakech is two pulsating cities in one, where modern culture sits just the other side of 11th-century walls. And all this endearing commotion is surrounded by quiet Berber villages.

Bartering on price over a mint tea is not uncommon.

    And if you get good at the haggle, you may grab a bargain on shoes, bags, lamps, rugs, silk, cotton, pottery, and plates. If you prefer your prices fixed and your shopping a little more boutique, then leave the charms of the old city for the new town, where you will find casinos, art galleries, and plenty of places to enjoy dinner and drinks. Alternatively, you may head back to the main square after sunset as many food stalls open, turning Djemaa el-Fna it into a massive open-air restaurant.

      "Bharti is such an inspiration. I learned so much from her, for my practice as well as my life. The venue was perfect, right by the sea with great food. We got to do yoga overlooking the Mediterranean and the mountains. The meditation classes were really life-changing, thanks to Bhartis experiences in India. I would recommend going on a retreat with her without any hesitation."

      "The retreat allowed me to reconnect with what I love. I left feeling grounded and peaceful and nourished. I appreciated Valentina's down to earth approach and found her encouragement and attention to detail during the classes helped me progress and I was so happy to feel my body getting stronger and more supple as the week went on. The perfect balance of yoga, meditation and Reiki sessions combined with free time to read, swim, walk or rest. I finished the retreat stronger both physically and mentally."
