Cultivating strength, coming home to the body: yoga retreat with Matt Gill
A proper holiday with sun loungers by the pool, leisurely meals al fresco and trips to the souks, but also a true retreat. Under Matt's guidance you'll develop strength, mobility and mindfulness whilst still having plenty of time to explore. Both the Guardian and The Times’ list this as one of the best yoga holidays in the World.

Classes will be held twice a day, morning and late afternoon on the fabulous rooftop shala bathed in birdsong with spectacular views of the Atlas mountains. There is plenty of time to relax and explore between classes and there are no classes on Wednesday afternoon to give you an opportunity to explore further afield, or just to make maximum use of the spa and swimming pools!
Matt’s teaching is mindful, considered and clear. He is a truly exceptional teacher with a manner that is supportive calm and encouraging. Morning classes will be stronger and more dynamic sessions but will also include some basic breath awareness and pranayama exercises. Afternoon classes will be gentler with a focus on mindful movement, meditation and relaxation. Matt's teaching is suitable for all levels, from beginners through to advanced.
Plenty of time to pamper, unwind, and explore the magic of Marrakech
