Classes take place twice a day, mornings and late afternoons, either on the open-air rooftop shala with panoramic views across the mountains or inside a beautiful spacious studio.
Enjoy a full, integrated and balanced Jivamukti open level practice each morning. The dynamic asana practice will focus on breath and alignment, and include creative vinyasa sequences, mantra, meditation, and hands-on assists, all set to a specially mixed soundtrack and ending with deep relaxation.
The afternoon session will be restorative and may include, gentle asana practice, mantra, meditation and pranayama.
There is plenty of time between classes to enjoy the resort and/or to explore the delights of Marrakech but we will also take a day off mid-week to give you the opportunity to explore further afield or make maximum use of the spa and swimming pools!
In keeping with Jivamukti principles, this will be a fully vegetarian retreat with fabulous plant-based nourishment to refresh and recharge the body.
Luis’s classes go beyond asana, bringing traditional aspects of yoga into a modern context.
An Advanced Jivamukti teacher, Luis’s soulful classes are a flowing and precise vinyasa, with challenging, yet fun sequences. Focusing on breath and alignment, classes include Sanskrit chanting and hands-on assists, are supported by music, and end with deep relaxation.
