Wild Thing (Balanced & Open) Retreat, Marrakech
Dates and Location
About The Retreat
Morocco is often referred to as ‘Maghrib - the land of the setting sun… the end of the world’, however, after organising my very first retreat there 8 years ago, it was an exciting new beginning for me (although I didn’t know it at the time!). I will never forget how I felt when I first arrived at Marrakech Menara Airport accompanied by a yoga teacher and 16 excitable ladies, I was captivated from the moment I arrived, how could somewhere so exotic (in my opinion) be such a short flight from the UK and so much warmer too.
Nestled in an old olive grove with breath-taking views of the Atlas Mountains, Peacock Pavilions is set in an 8.5 acre private estate, which enables you to embrace the wild woman in you and have your very own adventure, not needing to think about anyone else other than yourself for a few days, to breathe a little deeper, stretch a little further, restore some balance and open your mind and your heart to a new culture and new experiences.
Here’s a taste of what’s on offer:
Thursday 27th June
16.00: Check-in, unpack, unplug and relax by the pool
18.00 – 19.15: Restorative evening yoga session (Immerse yourself in a harmonious approach that incorporates the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual change that yoga can bring)
20:00: Welcome cocktail & dinner at Peacock Pavilions

Saturday 29th June
10.00: Transfer to ‘Les Bains de Marrakech’ for a 45 minute hammam experience and a 60 minute massage (when in Marrakech, a trip to a Hammam is a must in my opinion - followed by shopping and light lunch in the Medina)
