Exclusive Itinerary

Adrienne fell under Morocco’s spell over 10 years ago and since then has returned year after year for design inspiration and to delve into its rich culture. Alice's feminine approach to fitness has led her to the conclusion that we need to be nourished body, mind and soul. Her twice daily yoga sessions will focus on utilising breath, combining strength, flexibility and cardio, and relaxation.


Alice has been working as a qualified yoga instructor for 6 years, and has taught on yoga retreats in the UK, Italy, Sri Lanka and Bali. She now leads her own retreats in the UK and Majorca several times a year, in addition to her 1-2-1 sessions and regular workshops in the UK.


Adrienne and Alice would love you to join them this autumn as on this inspirational and empowering retreat in beautiful Morocco. 


And, of course, there's plenty of time to shop!

We'll stop for a restorative coffee (and a patisserie!) at the fabulous new Dar El Bacha Coffee House -- it's like stepping into the movie 'Casablanca'.  We'll head back to Maison 28 through the souks, where you can browse the concept stores and shops for treasures.
