Meditation & Yoga Retreat

STILLNESS

Sometimes we have to be far from home to give ourselves the permission to truly relax and reconnect with our true nature. Being on a retreat allows you to listen to your body, rest when you need it, and be free.

Yoga Immersion Retreat

02-06 October 2020

Mudita retreats has selected a unique and tranquil venue at the heart of Marrakech in order to create an exceptional experience for you. The purpose of this retreat is to “awaken”- to awake from the mental patterns which are influenced by our society, work, media and modern culture. These mental patterns disconnect us from experiencing our essential nature; compassion and love. We have selected a special place for you to practise with us. A space which helps take you away from your daily commitments and immerses you into a conscious, mindful state allowing you to explore your true nature.

Each day will be made up of morning vinyasa, followed by afternoon yin and restorative yoga and also a dedicated workshop to take place throughout the week. During the week we will come together to share and meditate to help you truly rejuvenate yourselves and expand your yoga experience and knowledge.

 

There will be optional activities and free time to allow you to explore the the vibrant city of Marrakech. You will be able to enjoy the local nature parks and gardens, explore the famous markets or simply enjoy the sun on the rooftop terrace or treat yourself to one of the available spa treatments. The retreat offers beautiful views of both the city and Atlas mountains from the rooftop. The accommodation was once owned by the Grand Vizer, advisor to the king. It has also been home to Jazz icon Josephine Baker in the 1920s who loved to relax in the fountain courtyard. All rooms have an ensuite bath or shower, hairdryer and stylish furniture with a French Moroccan taste. The riad has a dedicated rooftop and indoor yoga shala, dipping pool and private hammam. This retreat is designed to allow you to fully relax with friends or partners, or simply take time to be by yourself.

  • Experience sunrise yoga guided by Raphael and Joy on the rooftop terrace

  • Find time for silence and meditation

  • Refresh your body and soul with hamam treatments. (payable direct to the Riad)

Guest Teacher

I am very honoured to invite one of my teachers and good friend Raphael Melo, who inspired me to take my journey through Yoga 8 years go. Born in Brazil into a house of devotion, surrounded by his mother's love of yoga, Raphael would join her meditation groups in the house, or her Hatha yoga lessons at Yoga Sampoorna in Brazil. She provided Raphael with a foundation in yogic philosophy and helped teach him how to become a conscious human. Currently teaching retreats, workshops and teacher training around the world, his approach to teaching is 'integration' of alignment, Vinyasa, and the traditions of Ashtanga, all delivered with a kind sense of humour. His yoga practise and teachings are greatly influenced by Dharma Mittra, Richard Freeman, Michael Stone. Raphael will bring to Mutida retreats his knowledge in yoga asana (postures and alignment), pranayama and meditation, as well as yoga philosophy from his years of researching and studying. He is also a talented musician and belongs to a Kirtan band named 'Naam’ and will be brining some musical element to our 2020 retreat.
