Arrival in Morocco. We’ll pick you up at the airport and transfer you to our luxury home for the week.

Once the entire group is assembled, we’ll enjoy a welcome reception with canapes, and wine. Cocktail hour will be followed by dinner at our hotel.
Start your day with Lauren’s energizing yoga class in Peacock Pavilion’s tented yoga platform. After Savasana, enjoy breakfast in the sun. Once nourished you will be transferred to the Medina for a guided tour of the sights, sounds and tastes of Marrakesh. Get ready to shop in the souks of Morocco! Explore on your own for lunch, or ask our guides for recommendations. The group will meet in the main square for dinner in town. After dinner you can enjoy a movie in the cool evening air at the outdoor cinema.
AM yoga to brighten your spirits, followed by breakfast at Peacock Pavilions. After breakfast you will have free time to lounge by the pool, stroll through acres of olive groves that surround, or just laze around. Lunch at Peacock Pavilions is included. The afternoon will feature an optional yoga workshop with Lauren or more opportunity to bask in the sunshine. The evening will begin with a henna party and cocktails, followed by a ride to town for dinner and belly dancing!
The morning routine continues with yoga and a delicious breakfast. After breakfast you can enjoy some relaxation on the grounds of Peacock Pavilions, or participate in an intensive yoga workshop with Lauren. Lunch on the premise is included. After another delicious meal, you’ll head back to the Medina to visit the Jardin Marjorelle, Jardin Gueliz, or maybe another stop at the souk to pick up some local memorabilia and test out your bargaining skills once again. Dinner will be on the main square, as a group or on your own.
For the early-risers there will be a sunrise yoga class with Lauren followed by an early breakfast. After breakfast you will visit the seaside town of Essouria. Explore on your own for lunch then join us on the beach for camel riding! After you’ve tamed your beast of burden, continue strolling through this charming town. Find you’re own gem for dinner or ask us for recommendations. The group will meet for a late-night transfer back to Marrakesh.
Time to REALLY unwind. After morning yoga and breakfast, cars will be waiting to take you to a local hammam, or spa. Enjoy traditional relaxation and hospitality as you pamper yourself Moroccan style. After rejuvenating, there will be a farewell dinner complete with wine tasting in the dining tent at Peacock Pavilions. A time to reflect and share the week’s experiences.
Before heading on your way, enjoy some yoga with Lauren and one last breakfast in style. After big hugs and teary goodbyes, transportation will be waiting to send you on the next leg of your journey.
