About this trip

Reconnect with yourself and discover the rich and vibrant culture of Morocco through yoga, mindfulness, culture, and nature.

This yoga retreat holiday is for anyone that enjoys connecting with other cultures and exploring outside of their bubble. Together, let's discover a place full of colour and culture.

We will be staying in a beautiful Luxury Eco Villa that supports local communities and businesses. It's all about connecting and supporting locals while being mindful of our carbon footprint.

All levels are welcome, beginners highly recommended to take part. All you need is an open heart and mind.

Daily yoga and mindfulness practice will be included, as well as meals, and excursions (please refer to the itinerary below to find out more)....and lots of FREE time to unwind- it is a holiday after all!

Yoga & Mindfulness

There will be lots of time to explore and own your practice. Our yoga & mindfulness practice will be inspired by our surroundings- connecting to all 4 Elements: Water, Fire, Earth, & Air. Expect to pay attention to all elements and how nature can influence your practice.

For the early risers, there will be an opportunity to meditate in the outdoor/roof top Shala every morning at sun rise observing the stillness and quiet of the Moroccan air. A regular meditation will give you a good intention to start your day so that you feel peaceful and find clarity to make better decisions that support your well being throughout the day.

There will be a morning flow every morning to generate heat and mobility, giving you more energy to start the day and a restorative practice in the evening to wind down and surrender— because let’s face it, there’s already enough chaos out there, leave all the worries back at home, rejuvenate with me in Morocco!

An exclusive "We Connect" Workshop is included where you get the opportunity to practice with others. Expect some partner work and a guided massage practice -- community will be the focus of this workshop.

Loads of opportunity for journaling and reflecting during our down time where you can connect with yourself or with other like minded souls in the retreat. Having a community supporting your vision is a huge bonus, but it’s only when you have time for yourself where you truly understand your life purpose.

All practices are beginner-friendly and no experience needed; all levels welcome, all I ask is to have an open heart & mind and to follow your own curiosity.

Accommodation & Food

From the words of our beautiful host Nads, Founder of Manira Palm, this is what to expect:

"Manira Palms is Your Luxury Home away From Home.

Rejuvenate in our elegant eco villa hidden amongst the olive trees and ideally situated in a serene and peaceful location with views of the Atlas Mountains.  

Manira Palm is only a 20 minute drive to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech Medina, with Ourika Valley and Lake Takerkoust only a stones throw away.

We combine luxury and authenticity - a perfect partnership to help you relax and unwind after a day experiencing the real Morocco.

We endeavour to create lasting memories and enriching experiences for all when we welcome guests into our home.

We believe tourism creates an opportunity for a sustainable future.  So, we take priority in helping you immerse in true Moroccan culture.  Embracing these authentic experiences, together we support local charities and communities in Marrakech. 

Live like a Moroccan.

Eat like a Moroccan.

Love like a Moroccan."

I mean... how beautiful is that? We will be taken care of by Nads-- from a beautiful villa that offers 5 bedrooms that all benefits of en-suite bathrooms and private balconies, pool, sustainable grounds, outdoor & roof top Yoga Shala, beautiful views, and all vegetarian Moroccan meals (breakfast & dinner).

Katrina Madrilejo
I fell in love with Yoga when I started attending classes to support my mental and physical wellbeing during my professional dance training. I aspired to be like my teacher. The manner in which she delivered her classes: calmly, clearly, and with no judgements, left an everlasting impression. It was an hour of my time which I always looked forward to, where I could solely focus on myself. Join me through Why Knot Escapes to rediscover your worth and happiness as I pass on the same magic to every single one of you. :)
