Morocco Yoga Retreat Nicole Griffin Wellness

This retreat is being rescheduled to October 2022: new dates will be shared soon!

Morocco Yoga & Culture Retreat

We have rescheduled my Morocco Yoga Retreat to October 16-23, 2021!

Spend 8 days and 7 nights in the stunning Ourika Valley. Our beautiful retreat center is about 45 minutes outside of Marrakech.  Here, you will enjoy striking mountain views, expertly landscaped gardens, and a fully-equipped yoga studio.

Throughout your stay, you will eat delicious homemade Moroccan food. Likewise, you will relax, renew, sip mint tea, and immerse yourself in the vibrancy and hospitality of Morocco.

The full itinerary and detailed booking information can be found here.

Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination is required to book this trip.  

Yoga

We will have 1-2 yoga sessions each day.  Our morning sessions will include mindful movement, vinyasa yoga and short meditations. Our evening sessions will include yin and restorative yoga.  While a basic level of yoga experience is very helpful, all sessions will be appropriate for everyone.  

Bab Zouina, our yoga retreat center has a fully stocked indoor yoga space with props and mats.  They also offer an outdoor yoga terrace with beautiful views of the property.

Additionally, each day will feature curated cultural activities. In planning our Morocco retreat, we prioritized opportunities to interact with real people. Expect to meet a diverse range of interesting people while in Morocco.
