Bab Zouina Yoga & Retreat , Route de l'Ourika, km 30 Douar Sbiti, Marokko

OM EVENTEN

In September 2023, we will once again fly to Marrakech! Here we live in the countryside, about 45 minutes south of the city in the most beautiful surroundings at the Bab Zouina retreat centre.

We will practice the Tibetan Rites, Yin & Yang Yoga, Dragon Dance Yoga, breathwork and meditation, enjoy delicious meals, go on excursions, explore the market in the city and generally calm down, enjoy life, breathe and feel. At the same time, we allow ourselves to be inspired and wake up to life by feeling the warmth of the sun, taking in the colorful surroundings, letting go of everyday life and stress at home and enjoy the good life in Morocco.

The practice: MOVEMENT, MEDITATION & MATCHA

This is Maria's signature practice. Every day we start with this ritual, which after the retreat you can take home with you and continue on your own to continue strengthening your body, mind, soul and heart. This is how it looks:

MOVEMENT 

The five Tibetan rites + Yin & Yang Yoga + Dragon Dance Yoga (a slow Yoga Flow made by Paul and Suzee Grilley)

MEDITATION

Savasana + Silent meditation

MATCHA

Matcha is served as tea or latte, which we enjoy in silence as the day wakes up

These simple rituals have a great health-giving effect and you will feel strengthened both physically and mentally. The Tibetan rites are built up along the way from starting with five repetitions on day 1 which we gradually increase day by day throughout the stay. The yoga will be light, no advanced poses, easy does it.

In addition to the morning practice, we will also practice Breathwork and Yin/Restorative Yoga in the evenings. You will learn about the Tibetan Rites, where they come from, what they actually do to the body, and you will take home a booklet for inspiration for further practice.

Of course, we will go on a trip to Marrakech where we wander around the market. Perhaps we will divide into smaller groups, according to interest. Some want to shop for carpets and lamps, others wish to spend time in the museums, while others agian want to discover the beautiful gardens hidden behind anonymous doors around the city. 

Particularly famous is the garden that Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergè bought and saved from being razed to the ground in favor of a new asphalt road. A beautiful garden that the French artist Jacques Majorelle bought in 1923 and laid out as a park around the house he had built. Well worth a visit. In 2017, the YSL museum opened next to the Jardin Majorelle, a beautiful, calming museum designed by the modern architectural agency Studio KO. The exhibition is a "must see" for anyone who enjoyes fashion, art and creativity, fantastically beautiful.

At Bab Zouina, our home away from home, we have a pool, womderful gardens, a hammam for scrub and massage, and cozy areas both inside and outside for the days when we stay at home and just relax. You should have enough time to enjoy lazy hours where not much else happens other than sunbathing, reading, etc. WIFI only available in the reception. Enjoy this retreat as time off from Instagram, e-mails and Facebook. A digital light detox.

During the retreats to Bab Zouina, it's all about relaxing and enjoying quiet time between practice and meals. Here, the program is not very tightly packed, I wish for you to have plenty of time to do nothing. If you want to experience and explore more of the Moroccan culture, we are more than happy to help arrange an extra trip to Marrakech, or a trip to the beautiful Anima Garden. Or maybe you want to head out to the coast and visit Essaouira and see the beaches there. The possibilities are many. *you cover extra trips yourself, payment for these comes in addition.

We spend the mornings in silence until we finish our Movement, Meditation & Matcha practice and meet for breakfast. Come to yoga on an empty stomach. Food and coffee will be served after the morning practice.
