A week to immerse yourself into Moroccan culture, and your inner most landscape. A combination of yoga practice (asana, pranayama, meditation and inquiry), cultural exploration touring the historic medina and the labrynth of textiles, innate architecture, leather goods, smiling shop owners and colorful spices. We've rented an entire 8 bedroom riad (traditional home) in the heart of the old city, and will spend the last 2 nights of our trip in a luxurious, eco camp, in the Agafey Desert.
Each day of our retreat is curated to cultivate a sense of connection to this beautiful place, its people, to one another as a kula (community) and of course, to yourself.

A week to ascend and awaken. May this experience offer you the opportunity to remember the transformative power of taking a journey. Both externally, and internally.
Connect with yourself, expand your perspective, and do it all with the power and support of community.
Our aim is to offer an opportunity to take a journey of a life time. An exploration of Morcco, and an opportunity to navigate the inner terrain of body, mind and heart. In pursuit of deeper connection, travel becomes a remarkable ally in the uncovering of our innate essence. When we disrupt the habitual nature of our daily lives, our unique patterns of feeling and dealing are revealed. This offers us a gift of attunement through presence and perspective. We're able to recognize the places seeking alignment, and realize our agency as we move forwards.
Spend your days starting practice in our traditional Riad, followed by a beautiful breakfast spread with the sound of prayer echoing out from the city Mosques. Enjoy wandering the souks, shopping for textiles, meeting our soul brother Omar, indulging in a traditional Hammam spa experience and more. We'll also leave the city one day and visit the Atlas Mountains, where a local will bring us on a hike through the small Berber villages and lead us to a private lunch experience. Meals will be enjoyed both in our Riad and out, because we love supporting other local businesses & experiencing the diverse food culture.
On Thursday we'll leave our city pad and head out to the Agafey Desert, where we'll get to unwind and enjoy the quiet solitude this desert provides. Rest and relax in the stillness, enjoy a camel ride, dine under the stars and enjoy your closing practice, 108 sun salutations, in the dome.
Amidst all the exploration of Morocco, we will equally spend time immersing ourselves into self study (svadhyaya. Twice a day sadhana (practice) with meditation and pranayama as well as self inquiry work, will promote an intimate conversation with your inner most self.
UPON REGISTRATION, YOU'LL RECEIVE ACCESS TO A PRIVATE TRAVELER'S PORTAL THAT SHARES FURTHER DETAILS ON YOUR TRIP. EACH MONTH FOR THE 6 MONTHS LEADING UP TO OUR DEPARTURE, WE MEET VIRTUALLY TO CONNECT AND PREPARE.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
This is for those who are looking for a quality yoga experience and an amazing, well-rounded trip to Morocco. You will be expected to participate in the yoga journey just as much as you immerse yourself abroad. On our trips, we foster a deep sense of community (kula) and are all present for one another through each practice and conversation. We dine together for almost every meal, but on free days, only lunch will be on your own. Each trip is designed to feel holistic and dimensional, and a perfect balance between activity and relaxation.
Dani will lead a morning practice each, 2 hours of asana, pranayama, meditation and inquiry. If it is to your benefit, a restorative yoga practice will be offered each evening. The final practice will be a 108 sun salutations to seal the imprint and impact of our week.
If you like hanging out with like minded people, whether you're wanderlusting with your travel bestie or going solo, you'll have a built in community for the week. Especially in a place like Morocco, most of our travelers always say they felt safer visiting this country in a group.
MEET THE TEAM
DANI REIDY - TRIP LEADER
Dani has led over 20 international yoga retreats since 2015. From the beginning, her intention has always been to thread the essence of yoga through each moment of the trip, whether in formal practice or in the lived experience of exploring a whole new place with openness, awareness, and curiosity.
With a background in Anthropology, she is meticulous about curating a trip that feels equal parts adventurous, and luxurious, while honoring the traditions, values, and power of a place and its people.
It is Dani's joy to provide a high quality experience that feels special, beautifully designed, and thoughtful. She is here to support your journey, from the logistics to the subtle realms of heart and mind.
ANNA CAMPBELL - PHOTOGRAPHER
Anna Campbell is a renowned photographer based out of D.C. One of our main pillars as a yoga company is mindfulness. By offering a photographer on our trips it gives our guests an opportunity to be in the moment vs trying to take a picture of it.

In Marrakech, we'll be staying at a gorgeous Riad, right in the heart of the Medina. Our hosts are a French couple who make you feel like friends as soon as you arrive. You'll walk into an oasis, and be greeted by the two house cats, Bebe & Bowie, before sitting down for traditional mint tea. Feel right at home, as we take over the entire Riad for the five nights we're in the Medina. Our rooftop terrace, that is truly a plant haven, will give you space to relax under the African sun in between our activities. We'll be within walking distance of everything we do, beyond when we drive out to the Atlas Mountains for the day as well as when we go into the "New City" for dinner at one of our favorite women owned restaurants.
Our desert experience is once in a lifetime. Complete with bathrooms, a pool, garden and WIFI, our desert camp will offer you some of the comforts of modern accommodations, while encouraging you to stretch your adventurous spirit as you sleep under the stars.

What others have to say about our retreats
"This retreat was more than I could ever expect or anticipate. From the organization to the sisterhood made the experience that much more memorable. It was empowering on so many levels and each time I participate in these retreats with Dani, I continue to learn more about myself. Now only do we practice the physical aspect of yoga but also the mindfulness of it. I am forever grateful for this experience and for meeting such strong powerful women that contributed to my amazing journey."
