About this trip

Join Julien Pell and Miki Ash for a once-in-a-lifetime yoga retreat to Morocco where we'll deeply nourish, reconnect, and rejuvenate in the desert. We'll be staying at BE Agafay, a hidden oasis in the middle of the Agafay stone desert, located just 45 minutes outside of Marrakech.

Enjoy yoga and movement practices 2x daily, where we will weave in juicy hands-on adjustments, breath work, energetic clearing practices, journaling, meditation, and Yoga Nidra that will nourish your soul and bring you back home to yourself.  You'll have afternoons to spend as you wish: exploring the vibrant city of Marrakech, lounging in a day bed by the pool overlooking the desert landscape, getting a massage, riding a camel in your backyard, or one of the endless other activities available.  Note: we are including a private half-day guided tour through Marrakech early in the retreat so you can feel comfortable exploring the city on your own.

We'll have fresh celery juice each morning to start the day and enjoy delicious, healthy Moroccan-inspired meals using all locally-sourced ingredients that will invigorate all of your senses (think magical dinners under the desert stars).

This is your invitation to soak in the exquisite, spacious, healing magic of the desert, immerse yourself in Moroccan culture, and profoundly nourish your mind, body, and spirit.


- Transportation from RAK airport to the camp on May 10th and transportation back to RAK airport on May 16th. We will provide 2-3 different group shuttle times that work with flight arrivals/departures (if you wish to travel at separate times, we can help you schedule your own shuttle).

The closest airport is Marrakech Menara Airport (RAK), 27 km from the retreat center. 

The retreat will begin on the evening of May 10th, with participants arriving throughout the day.  We will have an opening ceremony practice and enjoy a beautiful welcome dinner together.

On the 16th, we'll have a quick morning practice, have breakfast and then head back out into our lives!


We'll be staying at Agafay Luxury Camp located 45 minutes from Marrakech. The property is a hidden oasis nestled in the desert where you'll be able to unwind, get away from the hustle and bustle, and reconnect to nature. The camp offers a beautiful swimming pool and hot tub, comfy day beds for lounging, a private yoga practice area and lots and lots of space to just chill and unwind.

The rooms are high-end, private yurts equipped with comfortable beds, air conditioning (cool or heat|), en-suite bathroom and shower, and a private outdoor terrace to enjoy the breathtaking views. Each yurt has a skylight window so you can stargaze from bed.


The retreat includes healthy and nourishing Moroccan-inspired breakfasts, lunches, and dinners (with the exception of one lunch and one dinner out to explore). Meals will include local flavors and locally-sourced ingredients. Coffee, tea, and celery juice will be available each morning. 

Please let us know any dietary restrictions you may have in advance.


Renowned yoga teachers Julien Pell and Miki Ash can’t wait to create a sacred container that emphasizes embodiment and transformation.  We will guide you through mindful movement classes that take you out of autopilot and the busy-ness of your mind and into your senses and your body.

Julien and Miki have both been teaching yoga for over 10 years, leading profound and integrative wellness and yoga retreats around the world.


Marrakech is a vibrant city located in the northwest corner of Africa, situated in the center of the fertile Haouz Plain and south of the Tennsift River. Its rich history dates back over 1,000 years when the sultans ruled over the walled city. Known for its colorful souks and local spices, the exotic essence of Marrakesh is captured in its fresh mint tea, the smell of herbal shops, and the spice towers beside carpet-covered walls of the pastel pink medina. Marrakech is also known as the city of luxury, prized for its famous palaces, 5-star restaurants, boutique hotels, luxurious spas and hammams, and enchanting riads (traditional houses) in the medina. You will undoubtedly experience a feast for the senses with an impressive array of aromas wafting from the cafés, restaurants and food stalls around the ancient city, the souks, and Jemaa El Fnaa square. With its rich history and culture, charming marketplaces, and beautiful gardens, there is no shortage of vibrancy or magic in this city.
