About this trip

"And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?" -Rumi

Join Toni Benino and Laura Gotlin this summer on a "Journey Back to Self" Yoga Retreat in Marrakech, Morocco. Our home for the week will be the Peacock Pavilions Hotel, a handmade, artisanal boutique hotel located on the outskirts of Marrakech. This culturally designed space is nestled in an olive grove with a breathtaking view of the Atlas Mountains. 

The estate is comprised of three pavilions: the Main Pavilion (surrounded by hundreds of rose bushes), the Atlas Pavilion (guest rooms) and the Medina Pavilion (private house), as well as outdoor areas. 

The hotel supports Project Soar, a non-profit organization established by the owners, to empower local Moroccan girls through arts and sports as well as health and English language education. Participants on the retreat will spend a morning volunteering here. 

What to Bring:

- Yoga mat (rentals available)

-Refillable water bottle

- Yoga attire

-Outfit for hiking

-Clothes for touring and dinners (dress cool! We're in the desert!)

-Hiking backpack




-Bathing suit


-An open mind and heart
