About this trip

Join Xander Psathas and Rachel Desimone, for a bucket list, 7 night / 8 day Yoga Retreat and Cultural Exploration of Morocco.

Morocco is one of the most culturally rich and interesting places in the world. Bordering the Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea, Morocco’s vast and diverse landscape features ancient cities, stretches of empty beaches, and stark deserts and mountains touched by Berber, Arabian and European influences.

Our Morocco trip is unique as you will not be staying in one location, but rather traveling to two different cities, Marrakech & Essaouira, which, in our opinion, represent the “must see” highlights of Morocco.

Our days will include daily yoga classes with Xander and Rachel, in addition to three of our most popular excursions: a women's Argan oil cooperative tour, a Moroccan cooking class, and of course, a beach camel ride. There will also be plenty of free time to explore (and shop!) the cultural walled cities of Essaouira and Marrakech, partake in optional excursions like ATV rides, and book massage and hammam treatments. Make sure to scroll all the way down to the itinerary below for more trip details.

We will stay at a comfortable and centrally located hotel in Marrakech, and at the lovely and peaceful 4 star Essaouira Lodge in Essaouira. We have both single and double occupancy bedrooms available. Please read on below for retreat package descriptions.

All prices listed are PER PERSON. A €500 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your spot on this trip. The balance is due 120 days prior to trip start date. Payment plans are available at no additional cost to you. Simply email after you register to inquire about options.

Arrival + Exploration

Our trip will begin in the culturally rich city of Marrakech. Nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Marrakech was founded as a city in 1062 AD, and is world renowned for its souks  (markets) and medieval maze-like streets, stunning mosques and palaces, relaxing hammans (Moroccan baths), delicious food, and much more. A perfect place to assimilate and integrate into life in Morocco, we will spend our first two nights here, before heading to the walled coastal city of Essaouira on Day 3 of our trip.

An incredible trip was hassle-free, and I did not need to worry about how to get transportation or accommodation was excellent. Ian and Kristen are amazing. They know all the local spots and some people around wherever we went, and overall it was fun. I would make another trip with their help; Guatemala was incredible, all except for the stars that I had to get up and down on to get to where we were staying, but in better shape for them now. Thank you for a fantastic experience, and I will never forget the cliff jumping and adventures to the various towns lots to do and to see. -Paulina

Absolutely phenomenal🥳🤩 Everything from the community that was brought together, the retreat center and its crew, and the Solseed team was Out-freakin’-standing! The most friendly and caring of people that had such brilliant energy and connected with us to such personal levels. They went beyond just providing a fun experience… lasting connections and friendships is their specialty!

This trip was so great! I enjoyed every aspect of the experience. SolSeed put together a perfect itinerary with a good amount of scheduled excursions and some blocks of free time. The meals were wonderful! And Tina was just delightful. Full of so much knowledge, very helpful when any need arose, calm and collected, professional without being stuffy. Just all around a wonderful representative. I would do it all again, for sure!!
