YOGA RETREATS

Dates & Locations

2020 Morocco Retreat Dates 21-28 November

Our Vision

To create a retreat for our community where individuals can come to step out of their routines (and obligations that go with them) deepen their practice, release stress, cultivate new self-care routines and bask in a slower pace in life.  All while being looked after by attentive but discreet staff, being fed nutritious and delicious meals from locally produced resources, lounging in the sunshine during the day, eating under the stars, listening to nothing but the sound of silence…

The retreat delivered much more than I had expected. I definitely appreciated sharing the human experience with the group for yoga and other activities.

 

Our Venue  

Tigmi is no ordinary hotel. Meandering corridors and courtyard paths lead to twenty-four authentically-furnished, comfortable rooms. You’ll enjoy plunge pools, secret terraces, charming gardens and a myriad of quiet corners in which to relax, read and recharge. Tigmi has a spa with hammam and treatments, as well as 2 fully equipped yoga/pilates studios, one indoor and one outdoor. There are 2 pools, the large one being heated to 25 degrees.

After sunset, enjoy traditional Moroccan cuisine and a glass of wine, with the snow-capped Atlas Mountains and distant lights of Marrakech as your backdrop. Many of the guests enjoy visiting the Atlas Mountains or the Souks in Marrakech. And many more enjoy the novelty of doing absolutely nothing.

The Spa

Perhaps a hectic day trip to Marrakech has left you flustered and dusted. Or maybe you’re simply in the mood to treat yourself. Either way, Tigmi’s relaxing and revitalising spa is just for you.

A visit to the hammam (public bathhouse) is a Moroccan tradition, and you may notice signs for the hammams within the medina of Marrakech.  Tigmi’s hammam pool and steam bath is for guests only, giving you the space and also privacy in which to relax.

Our resident beauty therapist will also be on hand to provide a range of exfoliation and massage treatments using authentic Moroccan skincare products that contain indigenous herbs, fruits and oils.

Excursion

On Wednesday November 25th, you will be offered the exciting opportunity to join an excursion along the Ouarzazare. This full excursion starts by driving trough the fertile country side of the Haouz plain. We drive up and across the High Atlas Mountains over the Tiz-n Tichka pass ( 6660 feet) with spectacular scenic views of mountains and semi desert terrain topped by Kasbahs and adobe houses. On the other side of the pass, a striking contrast of red clay villages and greenery lead us to the beautiful city of Ouarzazate situated of the edge of the Sahara Desert . Here we have time for lunch and a visit to the 17th century Kasbah Taourit, one of the many Glaoui Kasbah of the south. This trip is highly recommended for its scenery (lunch and tips not included).

Who is the Retreat for?

The retreat caters to all levels, but some yoga and pilates experience is recommended. We welcome all ages and physical abilities and can help you modify your practice if needed. If you do have injuries or a medical condition do check with your GP or a consultant that a daily yoga practice for an entire week is suitable. The classes will be in English, but Erika and Clarisse do speak other languages so do get in touch if you want to see if we can help.

What if I've Never Done Yoga or Pilates?

Can I still come on the retreat? 

You are welcome to join us. We would however advise that you take a few beginner classes before coming so that your body gets used to the practice and you learn some of the basic postures. Your body might be grateful to you for gently introducing it to yoga and Pilates. 6 consecutive days of practice could otherwise feel quite intense.

Do I Need to Attend All Sessions?

Our retreat is a yoga and pilates holiday. We would like you to get the most out of it and return to your day-to-day life refreshed, feeling healthy and energised. This might mean that you won’t want to attend all the yoga and pilates sessions and instead take a day off and go on a little day trip. The yoga and pilates are available to you but you do not need to attend every single session.

Why 3 Hours of Yoga/Pilates daily?

We want to offer you the opportunity to grow in your practice and to ask the questions that you can’t always ask in a normal class. The morning practice will be energising to set you for the day. The evening sessions will be calming and soothing and will prepare you for a good night’s sleep. But ultimately this is a yoga and Pilates holiday, not a boot camp, so do feel free to practice as is best and most nurturing for you and your energy levels. We would also encourage you to ask questions and get the most out of your holiday. You will be more immersed in your practice than you may able to be in your day to day life and it can be an opportunity for you to delve deeper into the practice with the support of your teachers.
