Release, Restore & Reconnect 

The Moroccan Goddess Retreat

IN A NUT SHELL

THE EXPERIENCE

Discover the true meaning of self love and discovery. Treat yourself to 5 nights rest with a Moroccan beach town get-away. Awakening body and mind with yoga, pilates, sea air and tranquility. Allow time for yourself to heal, grow and step away from the stress of daily life. Everything is planned for you. So this is an opportunity to completely relax and let go, all you have to do is show up. 

The female goddess retreat is exactly that, a group of like minded women coming together and creating a new, healthy and positive experience for themselves. Unwinding, expanding personal power and connecting to the divine feminine energy we withhold. A week of transformational shifts and spending quality time with your soul. Sometimes it is necessary to prioritize yourself.

YOGA & PILATES WITH LAURA

Since her qualification Laura has continued to teach yoga around the world, assisting with retreats in Portugal, teaching yoga in Chile and guiding meditations in Spain. Her love for travel and passion for living naturally is the sole inspiration for co-hosting this retreat. She is hoping to encourage you to lead life in a more holistic way while taking you through a luxury experience. Her classes and teaching method is heart felt, strengthening and allows space for you to let go of emotion and tension within the body and mind. 

 

Laura is currently studying Pilates and will be qualified to teach in June. Focusing on alignment and core stability, there will be a postural and breath-work workshop to partake in during your stay.

Combined, their caring and genuine personalities will make you feel at ease and ensure your entire stay meets your expectations and more.

 

"We are so delighted to bring you this enriching experience & watch you unfold"

- Laura & Lex

HEALTHY VEGAN CUISINE

The catering concept is clean, organic, healthy food!

The yogi oasis has a chef that will cook you breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. The delicious Moroccan recipes will be made with local fresh produce and offer a full range of dietary options, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free (no meat). You will feel nourished and lighter eating so clean. 

We know some of you may not eat vegan regularly, so this might be a big detox for you, a month in advance you will be sent a pre-retreat detox guide to help start making some optional changes before you come.

Think of this as a massive gratitude to the body.

Giving it time to detox all the toxins, emotions and non-nourishing foods.

 

Your body deserves this 6 day reset !

CULTURAL EXPERIENCES  

Included during the retreat

COOKING CLASS

Traditional Moroccan Cooking Class

Have fun preparing delicious plant based Moroccan meals that you can share with loved ones back home and continue your detoxification.

Fun Food Facts:

  • Local spices include cumin, turmeric, cayenne, saffron, and cinnamon- all which you can get at the spice markets

  • Nomads called Berbers were the first inhabitants of Morocco over two thousand years ago. They used local ingredients, such as olives, figs, and dates, to prepare lamb and poultry stews.

 

  • Morocco, unlike most other African countries, produces all the food it needs to feed its people. Its many home-grown fruits and vegetables include oranges, melons, tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, and potatoes.

  • Five more native products that are especially important in Moroccan cooking are lemons, olives, figs, dates, and almonds. Located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the country is rich in fish and seafood. (Read More).

HAMMAM SPA

Authentic Hammam Spa Trip 

This Moroccan ritual makes itself known around the world for it's relaxing and cleansing treatment that is centuries old.

Fun Hammam Facts:

  • Boosts the immune system. The hot steam used during hammam boosts the immune system by dilating the blood vessels and increasing circulation in the body, opening pores so toxins can be released

  • Rejuvenates the body. There is something genuinely transformative about the power of hot steam to restore tired, aching muscles. 

  • Intensely invigorates. The intense scrubbing and massage you experience during hammam lead to your body experiencing a considerable increase in blood flow, in turn, stimulating and awakening the senses.

  • Relaxes the mind and body. Thanks to its use of intense heat and steam, as well as the relaxing massage element, you’ll find it hard to find a treatment more pampering and relaxing than hammam.

MARKETS

Local Souk Adventure

The marketplaces, or souks, are integral parts of the many cities in this magical country. They serve for the locals as a place to buy goods and converse with each other, but for the foreign visitor they are a place unlike any other. 

Fun Souk Facts:

  • A souk is the name given to an Arab market. Traditionally an open-air market that locals relied on for their essential items, a souk would have traveling merchants passing through them once a week, once a month or at other infrequent periods. Marrakech’s strategic location at the heart of Morocco, however, meant that many traders came through the city every day

  • Through the years, Moroccan craft artistry changed due to modern techniques and chemical dyes used in the creation process. There are still high quality craft pieces displayed at Moroccan souks and market places, however. Start by getting as close to an art piece as a vendor will allow.

  • Some of the most sought-after items in Moroccan souks and markets are Moroccan carpets, blankets and Moroccan rugs. All are hand crafted in traditional Moroccan style. 

Moroccan Insights

Often called the “Red City,” Marrakech, Morocco, requires sun protection and headgear of some kind all year-round, even during winter. 

Traditionally the liver, not the heart, is considered to be the symbol of love in Morocco

Capital city of Morocco is Rabat

Official currency is Dirham

Moroccans speak a dialect of Arabic known as Darija and French

Morocco exports more than 90,000 tons of dates each year (get in my belly!!!)

The national costume is Djellaba

Tangier is the  oldest city in Morocco

The English word “genie” comes directly from the Arabic word djinn, denoting a spiritual being that may play some part in human affairs if called upon. In Morocco, djinns are believed to frequent places associated with water

Women’s rights in Morocco achieved a major step forward in 2004 with the reform of the country’s personal status code, the Moudawana. With the reform, women in Morocco can now have custody of their children, the unilateral repudiation of a wife is abolished, and a man’s taking of a second wife is subject to the approval of his first wife

TRAVEL INFO:

Fly into Agadir (AGA), Marrakech-Menara Airport (RAK) airport, or Mogador Airport (ESU). We suggest AGA, because it's closest to our retreat and included airport transfer.

Aim to fly in around 2pm on the 1st as they will give you time to go through customs, get to the accommodation and settle in before we begin.

We advise our guests to stay a day or two longer to explore more parts of the country on your own. There's gorgeous cities like Fes, Chefchaouen, Tangier & Marrakech.

Please check CDC to see if you need any vaccines before traveling. 

NOT INCLUDED 

Flight tickets aren't included - however if you book early bird, we will help you arrange your flights (so you don't have to stress about that, but we still won't be covering the cost)

You MUST purchase your travelers insurance before coming, as we will not accept anyone  who doesn't have it

Airport transfer is not included if you fly into any other airport besides Agadir. We can still help you organize your ride, but will be an extra fee.
