ESSAOUIRA & MARRAKECH, MOROCCO
Magical, mystical Morocco. Sole Yoga Holidays is so excited to return to this incredible country with a brand new design and homestyling workshop with the incredible Marlène Pauly of Coco Morocco April 9-16, 2018.
Join us for this very special yoga, wellness and style retreat in the gorgeous towns of Essaouira and Marrakech, Morocco. This is our 7th time returning to Morocco and we are so thrilled to share this wonderful yoga adventure with you!
First we will meet in Marrakech on April 9th and take a private shuttle to the bohemian, chic town of Essaouira by the sea. Our riad, Dar L'Oussia is meticulously decorated and extremely comfortable with its own elegant en-suite bathroom. Some rooms are decorated using traditional materials such as tadelakt, marble and zellige (intricate stucco resembling lace). Your host, Shari of Sole Yoga Holidays will guide you through twice daily powerful Ashtanga Flow lessons in the specially designed indoor yoga studio. Healthy and Delicious meals are served using European and classic Moroccan flavors. There are plenty of vegetarian options and special dietary requirements can be accommodated.
We will have our wonderful homestyling workshop on our stunning terrace or inside the sunlight patio room. We will explore the nearby markets, walk along the famous sea port and take an unforgettable camel ride along the glorious nearby beach.
Then, via private shuttle we will head back to Marrakech for our 2nd magical location in the heart of the medina. The Palacio de las Especias, after detailed renovations, resembles a building of the 19th century. Its nicely decorated spaces, with cool patios, clinking fountains and sunsets at the terrace makes it a perfect and chic location for our special retreat. Each room is spacious with luxurious bathrooms and cozy beds and stunning decor. The terrace is a dream with day beds and cushions to relax and enjoy the breezes and famous sunset. The place will be ours and we can practice yoga and in any number of stunning locations. Since we are in the middle of the medina, we will have two exclusive shopping excursions that will fit perfectly with our homestyling workshop from Essaouira. Don't forget to bring an extra suitcase!
Perfectly balancing the elegance and sobriety of African style, Moorish character and European spirit, our location in Essaouira offers a unique blend of tradition and comfort in each guest room. Every room features a separate dressing area, places to sit and relax, and a private bathroom. Hairdryers and plush bathrobes are also provided.
Our stunning riad in Marrakech is a design dream with spacious rooms filled with tiles, colorful rugs and some with private balconies or a charming tea corner. Each room has a private bath. We can enjoy a variety of common areas from the scenic terrace to the swimming pool.
Each morning in Essaouira and Marrakech we will indulge a heavenly breakfast that we can enjoy on the terrace or in Marrakech by the pool. Moroccan breakfasts are filled with fresh breads, fruits, eggs, yogurt and mint tea.
Dinner is included each evening in Essaouira in the stunning dining room. All meals will be prepared with European and traditional Moroccan recipes. Discover amazing dishes filled with flavors such as saffron, lemons and olives. Try a fresh salad (hot or cold) with artichokes and scented with ginger and honey. And delicious and traditional tagines and cous cous dishes will fill you up and leave you satisfied.
If you have room there are heavenly desserts such as caramel custard with cardamon or biscuits served with figs!
Two special dinners will be included in Marrakech. Our first night we will dine at our very special location. The menu contains popular dishes such as tajine or couscous, soft cheese briouats, kefta with cilantro and lemon, and smooth garbanzo bean and eggplant creams. Carefully chosen spices and nuts provide the delicious final touch. Our final evening we will enjoy ourselves in the vibrant city taking in all of the wonderful sights, sounds and flavors at an exciting, trendy and delicious local restaurant.
Enjoy twice daily invigorating Ashtanga Flow and Power Yoga sessions (75-90 mins)
from the indoor yet, airy yoga room with views of the corridor at our location in Essaouira. You will be inspired by the location and open-air feel of the space. Your host and instructor, Shari will guide you through daily strengthening and invigorating Ashtanga lessons in the morning and late afternoon. All of our yoga holidays are open to all-levels, but some yoga experience is recommended to fully enjoy the practice.
In Marrakech, we will practice twice daily on our gorgeous terrace or by the bright and airy indoor pool! The location is reserved just for us so we can practice where it suits us best.
DESIGN + STYLE
We are so thrilled to bring Marlène Pauly from Coco Morocco to our retreat for an exclusive homestyle workshop. This 3-hour workshop is informative, entertaining and inspirational. Let's discover our own style together! And then, comes the best part--shopping. Marlène is an expert in all things Moroccan. She will help us find exactly what we need and want for our own personal style. For those wanting their own individual workshop, Marlène will offer this as an extra option. Perfect for those in need of a major style change. With this option, Marlène will contact you prior to the retreat to discover a little more about you and your personal style needs.
Our shopping will take place in Marrakech as we explore everything from art to rugs, lamps to poufs!
Our holiday also includes a camel ride along the beautiful beaches of Essaouira. It is a serene and picturesque location. We will enjoy viewing Essaouira high atop these wonderful creatures!
Our location in Essaouira is right next to the souks so you can shop during your free time. Or, explore the ancient fishing port and see what the fishermen have caught that day.
