A week of yoga, relaxation and meditation Marrakech
October 5th - October 12th
Enjoy a late summer break at Tigmi situated just outside Marrakech. Set within beautiful grounds, Tigmi is a luxury hotel and retreat for us to practice our yoga and enjoy the amazing Moroccan hospitality.
Meandering corridors and courtyard paths lead to authentically-furnished, comfortable rooms. You’ll enjoy secret terraces, charming gardens and a myriad of quiet corners in which to relax, read and recharge.
During your stay, Tigmi’s grounds are yours to explore and savour. Winding paths lined with banana palms and citrus trees lead you around the beautiful gardens. Roses, hibiscus and bougainvillea bring a delicate aroma and add bursts of colour to Tigmi’s garden walls. Bask in the sun, or seek out the shade. You’ll find both in abundance.
The terrace offers stunning views of the Atlas Mountains and is home to the first of Tigmi’s two pools – perfect for cooling off with a quick dip, or stretching your legs with a relaxing swim. In a shady, secluded garden, you’ll find the second pool. Solar heated all year to 26 degrees and surrounded by comfortable divans.
We will practice our yoga on the roof terrace overlooking the Atlas mountains. I will be teaching up to 3 yoga classes a day with a mix of yoga asanas (poses), pranayama (breathing techniques), guided meditation and Yoga Nidra. The afternoon can be spent basking by the pools, or book a hamman or treatment in the TIGMI SPA. If you are feeling more energetic take the free shuttle to visit one of the souks in Marrakesh or go on one of the many interesting walks of varying distances that can be taken in every direction from Tigmi.
Many other excursions can be arranged for you. TIGMI has an ‘excursions menu’ at reception so there is plenty on offer.
The food is sublime.The retreat includes 3 meals a day:
A breakfast of delicious home-made juices, honey, yoghurts, pancakes, cheeses, locally made breads, fresh fruit and cereals will be served after class. There will be an ample and varied salad buffet lunch. The evening meals are traditionally North African dishes, with a mix of vegetarian and non vegetarian meals wonderfully prepared. Special dietary requirements can be catered for.
