Welcome to the Awakening of the Senses Yoga Retreat at the exotic city of Marrakech, a city that is guaranteed to seduce you. You will experience beauty where no embellishment is too extravagant; a convergence of passions that will awaken your senses.

Join us on a 7 days, 6 nights journey of discovery, magic, adventure, wellness and Arabian tales. Dream mosques, palaces, fountains, rose gardens, hammams, markets, spices, museums, fashion, camels and one night sleeping under the stars of the desert. You will taste, feel and touch the oriental essence magnified by rose water, argan and Prickly Pear Seed oils, honey dates and mint tea.

You will experience a unique yoga practice, meditation, chanting and sound healing. Indulge in oriental spa treatments while absorbing the teachings of natural herbal medicine. Your Marrakech voyage and cultural exchange experiences will remain in your hearts forever.

This retreat is opened to all levels of yoga practitioners.


“The Medina”, is the heart of Marrakech, its old city center founded in the 11th century. It is renowned for its treasure trove of mosques and palaces. Wander among a maze of narrow streets and magical souks. You will love its herbal markets and antique shops, and be captivated by its snake charmers, folk dancers and street food vendors.

Nestled inside the vibrant Medina, and hidden behind tall walls, you will discover our home, an oasis of peaceful living, “Riad Sakaan.” It is an authentic Moorish home with its pool garden courtyard, purifying Hamam and stunning rooftop. This stylish oasis is filled with hidden treasures and enchanted fragrances.

Here between light and shadows life is sweet and there is a sense of absolute serenity.

Your last night will take place under the stars of the breathtaking Agafay Desert, at “La Pause” desert camp with a magical and unforgettable Arabian night.

Daily Morning Sun Practice

Start your mornings with a Vinyasa Yoga, meditation and chanting led by Shayne Cohen.

Vinyasa Yoga is an energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while synchronizing their breath to their movements. Shayne’s classes integrate a dynamic flow with the application of precise alignment, meditation, visualization, intention and chanting to create an inner journey towards healing and empowerment.

Each class is designed to systematically stimulate the organs, glands, nervous system and move freshly oxygenated blood to the entire body as you release tension and simultaneously develop faith and intuition.

Adriana Vergara will be here to assist the newer yoga students reaching their own individual level.
