Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one's being, from bodily health to self realization. Yoga means union - the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life and endows skill in the performance of one's actions.

Life can sometimes get very busy and stressful, with the consequence that you find yourself in need of a restoring break. Body, mind and soul need to be nourished.

Riad le Clos des Arts directly promotes seasonal yoga long weekends, dates and programs are available on our special offer page.

The Riad is also the perfect location where to hold intimate retreats as it offers a very relaxing and calm atmosphere while being right in the hearth of the old city of Marrakech.

The 8 comfortable rooms, half of which can be arranged for twin occupancy, provide the ideal accommodation to participants in search of a comfortable place where to rest, along with the sunny roof-terrace, the small plunge pool and the several seating corners available around the house.

Yoga can be practiced in the fireplace salon, on the roof terrace or in the main courtyard. The house is ideal for yoga activities for groups with a maximum of 12 participants plus group leaders.

Home-cooked menus blend traditional Moroccan cuisine with a contemporary twist. For retreats, mainly vegetarian food is promoted, although freshly cooked non-vegetarian options are available on request. We can accommodate also vegan, lactose-free or gluten-free needs.
