Do you have questions about this yoga retreat?
Well, here are the answers to the most most commonly asked questions.

What is the best way to get to Marrakech from the US & Seattle?2019-06-01T06:33:34+00:00

There are direct flights to Marrakech from many of the largest cities in Europe. Our recommendation is to look for flights with a connection via a European city such as Paris, Amsterdam or London.

Round trip flights from Seattle as an example that time of the year can be found for around $1,000-$1,300.

You may be able to find lower rates when planning a stay in Europe and booking separate flights from the US to Europe and from Europe to Morocco giving you the opportunity to spend a day or two in a city in Europe.

Alternatively, there are direct flights to Casablanca in Morocco from New York, Washington DC, Miami and Montreal. You may also want to consider this route and book a flight with a stop in Casablanca or land in Casablanca to catch the 3-4h train to Marrakech.

When should I plan to arrive and depart from Marrakech?2019-10-16T12:59:13+00:00

We expect attendees to fly in during the day on Sunday 9/20 so they can participate in the retreat opening ceremony that Sunday evening. Departure should be planned any time during the day on Sunday 9/27.

What can I expect once I land at the Marrakech airport?2019-06-01T06:35:02+00:00

Once your flight lands, you will need to fill out an immigration form, get your passport stamped, pick up your luggage, clear customs and we will have a driver waiting for you outside of the arrival gate to meet you and drive you the mansion we will call home during the retreat.
