7 Nights Multi-Activity Yoga Holiday in Marrakech, Morocco

Enjoy a week of adventure and relaxation whilst basing yourself at our hotel, a classic Moroccan Berber-style accommodation within the beating heart of Marrakech and the Atlas mountains a stone's throw away. Explore the Medina in Marrakech and a tour up to the Atlas Mountains! Relax with a massage or hammam at the hotel's spa.

Join us on our 7 night yoga holiday in Marrakech throughout 2024 and 2025. You will spend the week staying in one place and visiting the city and the mountains.

Autumn and winter in the northern hemisphere are ideal times to escape to warmer climates, with a yoga holiday in Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains. With an average temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, relax and unwind with this combination yoga holiday of adventure, culture, and relaxation.

Your Marrakech yoga holiday will take you to the Medina in Marrakech with souks to explore. On the other days, you will enjoy a day trip to the Atlas Mountains to go for a hike, visit Berber villages, have a mint tea and experience their hospitality, and enjoy the wonderful scenery.

When you aren’t off adventuring, there is time to relax in your spacious private Berber-designed hotel with two yoga spaces, two pools, and plenty of outdoor lounging space with Moroccan courtyards and bougainvillaea romantically spilling over from private balconies. There are some days off to relax at the hammam at the boutique hotel, have a massage, or read a book by the pool.

That’s right! Base yourself at our beautiful venue on the outskirts of Marrakech, and while you still enjoy daily yoga classes, explore farther afield in this beautiful and diverse country.

Whatever you decide to do, you can re-energise and revitalise throughout the week by practising three hours of yoga a day in the indoor or outdoor yoga Shala.

Enjoy three meals a day at the hotel and each day as it comes. It is your holiday, so be as active or relaxed as you like. The venue can cater for all dietary needs so

Accommodation in Marrakech, Morocco

Your accommodation is based 24km outside of Marrakech in a small Berber village, its narrow alleyways and flat-roofed village houses made from packed mud and water giving them an earthy colour and warm glow.

The main area of our yoga hotel was built in 1840. From the outside it looks unassuming, walk in and it opens up into a peaceful and stylish space with large heated outdoor pool and relaxation area with views of Marrakech and the Atlas mountains beyond. With lawns, corridors and courtyards shrouded by banana palms, citrus and olive trees and the scents and colours of orange blossom and roses assail the senses. You may even meet the odd tortoise!

The bedrooms are authentically Moroccan in design. They can be twin/double or single rooms and have good quality linen and hand woven Moroccan covers and cushions with a lot of space and large bathrooms. They each have the traditional seating area and many of the bedrooms have fireplaces and private terraces.

The suites are larger and have larger bathrooms, larger seating areas and private balcony or outdoor space.

Sustainability

We are working towards reducing our carbon footprint, and here are some ways we, as a company, are doing this.

We are a 88% vegan company, 10% vegetarian and 2% fish or meat (only when staying in boutique hotels that offer these options). This makes up a huge percentage of carbon emissions that we avoid so easily because our food is still delicious, balanced and even more creative. So, thanks to you all for enjoying our healthy (mostly) plant-based meals.

The difference: Most travel companies struggle to reduce their travellers’ meat and dairy consumption, which accounts for a large portion of their carbon emissions.

We stay primarily in one location for the duration of the retreat. We have started staying in a few locations on our long haul, but it is limited to 2 or 3 locations over an 8 – 10 night period. Staying in one place means low carbon emissions because we aren’t burning fuel to get around.

The difference: Other adventure travel companies move around every two days, using alot of petrol in vehicles for sometimes only 1 or 2 people.

Our activities are low-impact—yoga, hiking, surfing, skiing/boarding, whitewater rafting, SUP, and kayaking are all very low-carbon activities, in fact, zero-carbon (except skiing/snowboarding due to the ski lifts, which is also low). These activities are included in the price we measure. The carbon may increase with travel to and from these activities in vehicles.

The difference: Other travel companies can include high-carbon activities in the price, such as jet skiing, quad biking, and jeep driving, which increases their carbon footprint.

We run more than half of our retreats and holidays in the UK; these are very low-carbon holidays.

We currently don’t measure our guests’ travel as part of our carbon output because our guests don’t only come from the UK, so it is hard for us to predict this. We also don’t include travel in the holiday price, which is not part of our calculations. We know that we provide these holidays, so we are looking to include this carbon measurement in the future so we are investigating how we can reduce this.

The carbon measurements at the top of the page with the icons are per person for the whole retreat.

Ultra-low-carbon holidays

These holidays are below 200 kg per person, and our UK retreats are below 100 or even 70 kg, so these are great adventures for low carbon breaks.

Ski holidays are actually low in carbon!

In France, many ski resorts are turning to green energy to power the lifts. If you eat low in meat and dairy while you’re there and hire your ski equipment, this makes your trip as low-carbon as possible.

How can you help?

There are ways that you can help reduce your carbon when coming on our retreats and holidays:

Travel by train, try slow travel across Europe and the UK.
If travelling abroad to Europe or further afield, choose carbon capture schemes, check out Ecologi. Offsetting is not the best thing to do these days, but try carbon capture where you pay for carbon to be absorbed into the environment.
Car share UK – we recommend when guests travel by train to arrive and depart at the same time to taxi share – which helps keep costs and carbon emissions down. Why not consider car share, too? Most guests who drive come alone or with a friend; we have WhatsApp groups that, if you like, you can see who is driving from your area and enjoy getting to know each other on the way to the retreats, and save on your carbon emissions at the same time!

We are by no means saints when it comes to producing carbon, as a travel company we know this is very difficult to reduce. We are working to reduce our carbon output each year by measuring it and then creating plans to reduce it. We are reviewing all our venues and asking them how they can improve their carbon reduction as we don’t own any of our venues but we would like to work with them to help in any way we can. We want to be transparent with this, so please get in touch for more information. As we change things, we will update the website.

Beautiful Marrakech

The joy of the Marrakech region lies in its diversity. You’ll revel in the colourful rush of the city souks, be inspired by the breathtaking views of the Atlas Mountains, and be moved by the gentle and warm hospitality of the Berber people.

Here 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.

If you exhaust the city’s fountains, palaces, and mosques, head south to the Atlas Mountains. Here, snow-capped summits perch high above wild river bases, protecting Marrakech from the searing climatic extremities of the Sahara Desert.

About the yoga

Morning yoga on your yoga holiday in Marrakech: wake up early to see the sunrise over the Atlas Mountains in the distance in our outdoor yoga shala. The practice will begin as a gentle awakening, building up to more dynamic poses – slowly building so that over the 6 days of yoga asana you find your body opening up to new depths in poses.  Settle in meditation quicker than before and feel energised and refreshed and ready for your day in the sun.

Evening yoga on your yoga holiday Marrakech: Arrive at our fully equipped yoga shala for sunset yoga. Settle into a more restorative practise of yin yoga and yoga nidra and long savasana to really relax and restore after a long winter.

We have an indoor yoga space if we need it also with heating or air conditioning depending on the weather.

Highlights

  • Feel totally relaxed and pampered in your stunning authentically designed boutique yoga hotel

  • Daily yoga to energise and revitalise body and mind

  • In-house spa with the best massage therapists and Hammam for ultimate relaxation

  • Explore Marrakech with a guided tour
