Magical Morocco Adventure/Yoga Retreat - April 4-11, 2020

The_OMalleys_017.jpg

Join Nicole for a luxurious week of exploring your body and mind through daily yoga and sensory explorations of Marrakesh. Experience all the sites and sounds of magical Morocco with luxurious day trips, spa days, tea time, souk tours, and more!

“And, when you want something, all of the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.”

Paulo Coehlo, The Alchemist

Daily excursions and activities that connect us with the soul of this culture.

I believe travel retreats are meant to be experienced through curiosity and exploration. This African retreat will be full of gorgeous experiences that engage all the senses. Find ways to really look and be mindful, and discover a new way of seeing!

This retreat includes a Moroccan cooking lesson, a guided tour of the historic sites and lively souks (markets) of Marrakesh, a relaxing spa day at a renowned hammam, an all-day trip to the charming coastal town of Essaouira with an optional camel ride on the beach, and an outing to the Atlas Mountains for a hike or mule ride… and more.

In the evenings, we will gather for delicious meals either at the Pavilions or in a Moroccan town. At least one night, we will wander the exotic, mystical market square of Marrakesh – home to snake charmers, fortune tellers, dancers, storytellers and more. At the Pavilions, our evening activities include henna tattoos and an outdoor movie night under the stars.

Our home for the week is Peacock Pavilions, http://www.peacockpavilions.com, an 8.5 acre private estate nestled in an olive grove on the outskirts of Marrakech, with views of the snow capped Atlas mountains.  The eco-friendly abode has been featured in worldwide publications, including National Geographic Traveler. Breathtakingly beautiful and luxuriously designed, the living quarters where we will stay during the retreat feature gorgeous fireplaces and a glamorous bathroom in each room. Each bedroom also has its own private terrace. The property features a pool, outdoor gym, outdoor cinema, yoga/activities pavilion, and a painted dining tent.  Peacock Pavilions was designed to promote wellbeing and fun!


We will be fed delicious organic meals at the Pavilions. Made fresh with local, seasonal farm-to-table resources and served either outdoors on the terrace or in the gorgeous Moroccan dining tent. Several evenings at the Pavilion will include cocktails and hors d'oeuvres before dinner is served.

What is included:

  • 8 days, 7 nights luxury shared accommodations

  • Exclusive use of Peacock Pavilions (terraces, pool, grounds)

  • Daily homemade, organic breakfast

  • 2 hosted lunches + 5 hosted dinners @ the Pavilions

Daylong Retreat at Green Gulch Zen Center

Green Gulch 2.JPG

$145 which includes yoga, lunch and use of the grounds.

Join me for a day of self-reflection and renewal. Using the grounding practices of yoga and the powerful land where Green Gulch is situated at the edge of the vast Pacific Ocean, we can soften into ourselves and connect with our deeper being. A day away from our routine can be so incredibly rejuvenating and healing.

We will begin at 9:30am with meditation and an active asana session. At 12:15pm  we will share a lunch prepared with organic vegetables from the Green Gulch Farm. After lunch, we’ll take a few hours for personal time and reflection: perhaps exploring the organic gardens, a walk to the beach, or journaling. We will complete the day with an afternoon session of yin and restoratives postures. Our day together will end at 5:00pm.

If you wish to stay at Green Gulch before or after the retreat, accommodations may be available. Reservations can be made by calling 415-383-3134 . Green Gulch Farm is located in Marin County, just 15 min north of San Francisco, in a gorgeous valley that opens out onto the Pacific Ocean at Muir Beach. More details can be found on their Web site http://www.sfzc.org/ggf.
