Marrakech Retreat

The retreat has been absolutely life-changing

Delighted to announce our very popular {Re}Treat Yourself Marrakech is back!

I would love to invite you to join me at my next retreat in the alluring Marrakech from the 14th –  17th May 2019.

What

A mini-holiday for the mind body and soul! This empowering self-care retreat for women is designed to give you full permission to re-connect with who you innately are, stop settling and step into your power and be your very best self. Unapologetically.

 

Why & Where

Once you have experienced the allure of Marrakech, you will want to go back again and again.

Marrakech is the perfect destination for our self-care retreat, our exclusive riad is an unexpected oasis of calm nestled in the middle of a busy medina, the perfect juxtaposition for trying to balance increasingly busy lives.

Self-worth and self-care are vital ingredients for self-preservation.

We live in a culture that celebrates being busy and it puts pressure on us to be all-things-to-all-people, often at the expense of our own well-being putting ourselves at the very bottom of the to-do-list.

We say yes to things we should be saying no to, and hold ourselves back from things we should be saying yes to because we stretch ourselves too thinly.

Self-worth is powerful and essential to personal growth and success, yet so many of us have low self-worth. Fear of failure, fear of being judged, or not feeling good enough, all hold us back from achieving our goals, thriving and living our true purpose.

It is time to stop settling.

Prioritise your self care and put yourself at the top of your to do list in this three night retreat. Through self development and group masterclasses you will intimately explore your self worth and self care, discover and overcome what holds you back, reignite your creativity and learn to live and consistently operate from a place where you are truly thriving.

Work on self-development is not for the faint-hearted and you will be treated to some blissful treats for your hard work.

Our home for the week will be the beautiful recently refurbished   Dar Jaguar, this 4* rated tranquil riad hotel, is delicately tucked away creating a sanctuary against the bustling backdrop of Marrakech’s medina, the beauitful metaphor for learning to live with more freedom and peace against the demands of modern day life. With delicious freshly prepared meals by our own private cook, who has worked with and inspired Gordon Ramsay with her home-cooked, authentic Moroccan dishes –  which have since been included in a number of Gordon Ramsay restaurants internationally.

Wake up to the peaceful sound of birds tweeting and rustling palm tress. Start the day with a restorative sunrise yoga class on the rooftop rounded off by delicious breakfast featuring freshly baked pancakes, bread and fruit. Followed by carefully curated workshops and experiences, time for respite, reflection (and shopping if your heart desires), rounded off by excellent conversation with like-minded women over delicious freshly prepared dinner on a rooftop terrace as you watch the sunset.

This retreat is designed for dedicated women who are committed to invest in themselves, ready to make positive changes in their lives AND to those who recognise they deserve more than what they are settling for.

If you have already joined us on one of my retreats, you already know the value of them and this is the perfect opportunity to revisit, re-connect and go even deeper into self-exploration. The sky is the limit.

You’ll leave the retreat feeling grounded, awakened and rejuvenated whilst building friendships and community with like-minded women who all share one common goal – to live more fulfilling lives.

About Marrakech 

Bright and beautiful Marrakech is the fourth largest city in Morocco, North Africa. Marrakech has always been popular with creatives and artists and continues to be a popular destination for many. Known as the red city because of the colour of many of it’s buildings, constructed in red sandstone, it’s a truly majestic, colourful and eclectic city steeped in exotic culture, architecture, great food, shopping and history, juxtaposed against its synonymous bustling medina, luxurious spas, tranquil riads and palm tree lined resorts.

The weather in Marrakech is balmy and sun-soaked pretty much all year round and the average temperature in May is around 21 degrees – with highs of 27 degrees. Delicious!
