Be Brave, Be Fierce, Be Free: luxury yoga holiday with Jonelle Lewis


One of The Times Top 20 retreats in The World and The Guardian’s 25 Best Yoga Holidays and Retreats. This is a proper holiday, but also a transformative retreat in a spectacular location, combining Jonelle’s exceptional teaching, gorgeous accommodation and the buzz of Marrakech just 20 minutes away.

The Guardian: Come to this ‘restorative riad… with vibrant Jonelle’

“My second retreat with the same company in the same location - Yoga Explorers - awesome - looking forward to 2019 - Jonelle is an amazing teacher.” Maria Sunderland

Classes will be held every morning before the relaxed group breakfast, and a second class will be held in the late afternoons. There are no classes on Wednesday October 2nd, as this will be a day off to explore further afield, or to make maximum use of the spa and swimming pools!

The morning practices will be vinyasa based; full of things that will nourish and recharge the body as well as strengthen. In the evenings we will completely slow down with Yin/Restorative & Nidra to surrender into sweet relaxation. 

Your teacher for the week is the super experienced and fun loving Jonelle Lewis. Classes will be suitable for all levels, from beginners through to advanced yogis. Jonelle will take you on a journey over the week, one that will have you laughing one minute and blissed out relaxed the next. An energising, laid back and wonderfully fun retreat!
