Lying on the crossroads of Europe and Africa, Morocco beckons you to a world where the exotic becomes commonplace. Join certified Yoga & Pilates Instructor, Rebecca Schefstrom and retreat coordinator, Carolyn Perry, on a magical 6 night /7-day retreat at the boutique hotel of Peacock Pavilions, peacefully nestled in an olive grove just outside of Marrakech.
There’s something very powerful about unplugging from your day to day life and gifting yourself time to be free. Time to strengthen your practice and experience new adventures. Cultivating a daily practice creates the strength, grace and balance which helps guide you through your journey and in your life back home. Travelling and experiencing exotic locations awakens a greater potential as you replace familiar routines with new adventures. We will explore the tools that will help you infuse your daily life with inspiration, energy and balance.
We will start each morning with a mediation, to take space and center the mind and body. Followed by a 90-minute all-levels yoga practice that will leave you feeling energized and ready for daily adventure. In the evening, we finish with a one hour Pilates practice to reset the body, strengthen the core and do some restorative stretching. The alchemy of meditation, yoga, Pilates, and nourishing food combined with spectacular views and serene grounds will support your mind, body, & spirit.
Daily adventures will include a half day guided tour of the Medina of Marrakech, where we will explore historical sights, shop in the souks and have lunch in town. There will be a full day trip to the Atlas Mountains, with a visit to a rustic Berber village, followed by a chef tasting menu at Richard Branson’s Kasbah Tamadot Hotel. A luxurious afternoon will be spent at the world class La Mamounia hotel spa and a daytrip to the lovely Jardin Majorelle Gardens. We have planned at the Pavilion, a Champagne brunch, special movie night under the stars with popcorn and hot drinks, and a henna party with cocktails and appetizers party by the pool. Most of our meals will be at the Peacock featuring delicious, farm-to-fork vegetarian meals.
