Course description

Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles.* Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit participating students' needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practice. Depending on each retreat location, classes will be held in a dedicated indoor yoga space and some also offer outdoor options as well for us to use if the weather is agreeable. Certified yoga instructor and EPM founder, Erin Lewis, will facilitate the classes, helping each student focus on improving their practice and gaining new insights into their bodies and movements. She's studied various types of yoga disciplines since 1998, concentrating on the Ashtanga discipline since 2008. She received her teacher certification in Florence, Italy and has continued her education with various specialty certifications throughout the years. She now combines powerful movements with more anatomical-based core vinyasa flow and restorative movement in her personal practice and teaching style. * Participation in classes and activities is optional throughout the retreat. All levels welcome!

About the place

Surrounding Area Guests will not only enjoy the grounds of Peacock Pavilions, the outdoor areas including a lovely pool, patio, private terraces, and covered yoga platform, but the retreat includes some amazing day-trips to the surrounding sites. A guided day in Marrakesh will lead guests through an introduction to souks and visits to sites such as Ben Youssef Medrasa. A full day will be spent exploring the nearby Atlas Mountains with a base at the Kasbah Tamadot Hotel with a traditional mule trek to the nearby village of Asni followed by time at the beautiful grounds of this 5-star location overlooking the vista and tasting menu lunch. The final full day entails a trip to the famous Bains de Marrakesh, a luxurious spa facility, where guests can be pampered to their heart's content with a full program of various treatments. What better way to wrap up a week of yoga than a day of pure relaxation. Accommodation The Pavilion This fantastic yoga retreat will take place at the fabulous Peacock Pavilions boutique hotel. Located in Marrakesh on 8.5 acres of land, including 5 acres of olive grove, this stylish and eco-friendly abode has been featured in worldwide publications, including National Geographic Traveler. Breathtakingly beautiful and luxuriously designed, the living quarters where guests will stay during the retreat features gorgeous fireplaces and a glamorous bathrooms in each room. Each bedroom also has its own private terrace - "just the right place to enjoy a minty tea or a zingy cocktail"! The entire pavilion property has been decorated with care and "loaded with art, special fabrics, and exotic good stuff from all around the world...A swanky place to relax, the salon/great room has a stunning lacy plasterwork that took weeks to complete. There is also seating and dining areas for intimate discussions and cozy meals. A spiral staircase leads to a catwalk high in the air, where you can sit on vintage embroideries and admire the view." Not only is this place gorgeous, but it's also eco-friendly. Observing "green" building and gardening techniques, you'll feel good about the organic bounty served to your plate, and the hot water you use heated by the solar panels! Spend some free time at the lovely, inviting pool and patio, or join us for a henna and cocktail party in the painted tent, or perhaps an outdoor cinema night on the lawn.

Instructors

Erin Lewis
Now on the seventh year of retreats, EAT.PRAY.MOVE was born from Erin’s love of yoga and travel, and a passion to share these two loves with others. She calls both the US and Italy home these days and loves to share la bella vita with others. Italy and many other locations around the Mediterranean beckon her for some reason; it’s a draw that has only grown stronger over the years. This feeling is similar to the love she feels for yoga. Studying various practices since 1998, she’s experienced her personal practice deepen and passion for the entire discipline grow stronger, leading to her certification as a yoga instructor and daily renewal of the ongoing practice. Throughout the years she has deepened her study with ongoing education and certifications and finds there to be truth in what Sri K Pattabhi Jois famously stated: “Practice, and all is coming.” She’s been blessed throughout her yoga practice to be surrounded by beautiful teachers who grow with their students, adjust lovingly, and practice what they teach…and continues to strive to be such a facilitator of yoga herself.

 


 


 


 

 

    Our Moroccan yoga retreat was a dream come true for me. I LOVED everything about EAT.PRAY.MOVE! I truly enjoyed our twice daily yoga practices as well as our day tours into Marrakech for some unique cultural experiences. Erin did a fantastic job with every detail of this retreat. She made it an unforgettable travel experience for us. I’m looking forward to attending future yoga retreats...I want more of EAT.PRAY.MOVE! From EAT.PRAY.MOVE testimonial page

    I am still dreaming about my recent EAT.PRAY.MOVE yoga retreat in Marrakesh, Morocco. Everything Erin planed for the trip was WAY above my expectations! Not only was the trip perfectly planned to include a fantastic cultural experience... the yoga sessions (twice a day) and instruction took me to a deeper level of practice. Erin really took the time to help me improve and excel each day of the retreat. This will not me my last EAT.PRAY.MOVE trip...can’t wait to see what she is planning for next year!!!

    “Deciding to finally live my dream and go to Morrocco, when finding EPM and the Luxury Marrakesh package I was immediately SOLD! Erin did an outstanding job to really deliver a luxury retreat without missing a beat! Her knack for style, taste, and overall experience is bang on! I just wish it never ended!! From the food selections to the markets, hotels, spas, wine tasting, mule treks and yoga (of course), it was all around exceptional. She has created the ultimate experience, and I look forward to adding another one of her retreats to my list! Thank you, Erin and EPM, for a life altering experience that I will always cherish! ” From EAT.PRAY.MOVE testimonial page

You, Julian and all my new yoga buddies are the most wonderful people I have ever met in my life.

    " Wonderful and transformative experience"
    “I have always had a love of travel and a spirit of adventure, but as an almost 69-year old single woman, I believed my opportunities were limited and tame. Then EAT.PRAY.MOVE came into my life and boy am I hooked! I signed up for the September trip to Marrakech and it was one of the finest travel experiences of my life. The accommodations were beautiful. The service. wonderful, The feeling of family and good friends surrounded us. Instead of being in a hotel, with the usual hotel culture, I was able to experience a true Moroccan lifestyle, including delicious food served on a delightful porch near the beautiful pool during the day and in a picturesque tent in the evening. The activities were fabulous: walking around in the walled old city with shopping galore, going on a day trip to a beach town, including riding a camel, (I fantasized being Lawrence of Arabia) and dining in exceptional Marrakech restaurants. We received henna treatments and spent an afternoon at a spa. Of course, there was yoga and meditation every day, too. It was a wonderful, exciting and affordable trip. I can’t wait to see next year’s schedule! ” - From Eat Pray Move testimonials page
