Yoga on their 27th retreat at Peacock Pavilions for a luxurious week of exploring your body and mind on our FORM+FOCUS yoga + creativity week! We'll enjoy a sensory experience through Moroccan magic! Find ways to really look and be mindful, and discover a new way of seeing!
GIVE BACK RETREAT
This retreat is part of our GIVE BACK initiative, where EPM will donate at least 10% of profits to a humanitarian partner in the community where each retreat is held. Our partner in Marrakesh is PROJECT SOAR who works with underprivileged communities and young women to empower with design, clean-up projects, and creative ventures.
Besides daily yoga classes, our FORM+FOCUS retreats combine a look at creative focus with travel-journal creation classes throughout the week. Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare our bodies and minds to find the 'calm in the chaos' of the sensory-overload that is Morocco - and then these art projects will help us find news ways of seeing - both yoga and art working together to find FOCUS in the many layers of smells, sites, and sounds that abound in exotic Marrakesh. *NO PREVIOUS ART OR YOGA BACKGROUND REQUIRED. All levels are welcome, and participation is voluntary. Projects and classes will be offered as a completely exploratory, unintimidating and personal experience.
DAYTRIPS & ACTIVITIES
Guests will not only enjoy the grounds of Peacock Pavilions, the outdoor areas including a lovely pool, patio, private terraces, and covered yoga platform, but the retreat includes some amazing day-trips to the surrounding sites. A guided day in Marrakesh will lead guests through an introduction to souks and visits to sites such as Bahia Palace or Ben Youssef Madrasa.
A full day will be spent exploring the nearby Atlas Mountains with a base at the Kasbah Tamadot Hotel and a traditional mule trek to the nearby village of Asni, followed by time at the beautiful grounds of this 5-star location overlooking the vista and tasting menu lunch. We'll visit YSL museum and Jardin Majorelle, and camel rides on the dunes at sunset can be added for those wanting to experience the perfect Moroccan photo-op. The final full day entails a trip to the famous Bains de Marrakesh, a luxurious spa facility, where guests can be pampered to their heart's content with a full program of various treatments. What better way to wrap up a week of yoga than a day of pure relaxation.
