Join this special week of deep renewal as you explore the power of ritual to bring you into the present moment and into the flow state.
The ceremony of tea will guide the flow of each day’s activities, which include a day trip to Richard Branson’s retreat in the Atlas Mountains, a mule trek to collect wild herbs and enjoy traditional tea in a Berber tent, shopping at the souks, a spa day at a traditional hammam and a tea blending workshop as well as -
Daily yoga classes (morning vinyasa and evening yin). Yin yoga, like tea ceremony, facilitates deep emotional release and heart opening and so accentuates our exploration of mindfulness, connection and slow, soulful living!
You will leave with an understanding of tea as a plant, a lifestyle and a divine beverage as well as a personal tea ritual, a hand-blended tea and a daily practice to turn the mundane into meditation and tap into the bliss of the present moment.
Enjoy Vinyasa classes rooted in the Ashtanga tradition as well as Yin yoga, to compliment the power of tea ceremony to connect and change us.
Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help you grow in your own personal practice.
Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles.
Style and class levels will be determined and modified to fit each persons needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, you will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore your practice.
The retreat also includes some amazing day-trips to the surrounding sites. A guided day in Marrakesh will lead you through an introduction to souks and visits to sites such as Ben Youssef Medrasa.
