October 4th - 10th
Cost of retreat:
Join Gina Norman and Heather Cotter for Kaia Yoga’s 4th annual International Cultural Retreat to the exotic location of Marakesh Morocco.
Gina and Heather each year look for a fun and culturally full international experience bringing yoga and exploration together for a week of rest and new experiences. Each day will consist of a powerful, but insightful vinyasa flow to start the day. We will then come together for a local brunch, group activity and local dinner. We will have a grounding yin/restorative afternoon/evening practice to bring the day together. Each day will give everyone an opportunity to connect as a group, but enough freedom and space to spend time alone. Our goal on this retreat is to provide every person an opportunity to connect with each other, their yoga practice, the culture and themselves.
This 6 night 7 day retreat is located in a resort style home, which is a fusion of modern and ethnic design. This amazing villa is situated 10 minutes out of Medina (Marakesh) and has two pools, sauna, jacuzzi and lush gardens filled with lime, apple and pomegranate trees. Every bedroom is large with an en suite and the common areas are grand with high ceilings and ample seating areas perfect to lounge and read a book or connect with others.
The spacious accommodations include a spa for treatments. Each room has its own unique design and the property includes several common areas to rest and connect with others both inside and out.

Review of our accommodations:
Our five nights spent in this villa were quite simply the most amazing travel experience we have ever had! Stepping through the gigantic wooden gates and into this villa was like entering an Arabian King's Palace; high ceilings, a grand open living room, two swimming pools, lush gardens filled with lime, apple and pomegranate trees and our very own spa complete with a sauna and a jacuzzi. We felt like we had ascended into actual royalty. And yet, what made the trip so incredible for us was the care, kindness and hospitality of the property manager Laurence, quite simply the most beautiful and graceful soul I have ever come across in any walk of life. The bedrooms are spacious, elegant and equipped with every amenity you could possibly need (including his and hers sinks), and the living room, dining room and swimming pools are so spacious.
