Yoga On A Shoestring

Tigmi, Morocco Retreat

14-21 November 2020
Cost – TBA

Tigmi, situated 24km south of Marrakesh, is set within a magical desert landscape. On the brow of the Berber hamlet of Tagadert, its labyrinth of narrow alleyways and flat-roofed village houses has a timeless, biblical feel.

‘Tigmi’, meaning ‘my house’ in the local Berber dialect, was built in 1840 for the local judge. As with many North African dwellings, the interior is all: a step inside, and the peaceful beauty of Tigmi is revealed. The first impression is of a lovely garden laid to lawns and paths, with banana palms, citrus and olive trees and a swimming pool with soft, jade-coloured water. The scents and colours of orange blossom and roses assail the senses. Fifteen tortoises live in this garden, adding to the unhurried feel of this tranquil oasis.

There are two swimming pools, one of which is heated to 26 degrees throughout the year. There are sun-loungers around the pool and shaded areas in the gardens, furnished with comfortable divans for those of you who prefer to laze around out of the sun.

I will offer two yoga sessions a day. The morning session will begin with pranayama and meditation and unfold into a beautifully flowing, powerful and graceful asana practice incorporating the foundational principles of Scaravelli Inspired Yoga; the breath, gravity and space. We will work with natural and organic movement of muscles, fascia, bones and the spine in a deep and nurturing way, exploring primal movement and liberating both mind and body from the inside out without creating force.

The evening practice will be a calming, meditative, more gentle and restorative session. Softly opening the body, attuning the mind to the breath, letting go of deep rooted physical and emotional tension; bringing your whole being back to a primordial state of balance and harmony. You will have time in between sessions to take in the stunning beauty of the surroundings, relax by the pool or enjoy the souks of Marrakesh which is 30 minutes away.

The yoga space is a covered roof terrace with stunning views of Marrakesh across the plains.
