Join Samira and Rhia for a week of movement, joy, culture, reconnection and discoveries in colorful and breathtaking Morocco.
October 7-13. Spaces limited!

Embrace your stay in the lavish Peacock Pavilions, located in a hushed olive grove, just 20 minutes outside Marrakech’s Medina.
We will celebrate and dine in an authentic Arabian dining tent, amidst the glow of  lanterns, hand crafted art and textiles. Twice daily classes including yoga, Pilates, stretching, myofascial release, dance, and more in the beautiful open air pavilion will help you feel fantastic your whole trip. You can exercise every day, or take that time for lazing about the pool, strolling the gardens or relaxing with tea.
Our days will include a professionally guided tour of the Medina, Marrakesh’s historic city center, a trip to the Atlas Mountains, a traditional Hamman (Moroccan bath house), a Berber museum, henna art, music, a wine tasting, tea time, cocktail parties, tantalizing food and more.

We will start our stay, by giving – with Project Soar. We will participate in an event for this non-profit organization established to empower local Moroccan girls through art and sports, as well as health and English language education.
