Classes are accessible to all levels of practitioners. No prior experience is needed. Each class is curated for the participants attending the retreat and modifications are provided as needed. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned practitioner, there will be a common foundation from which we will practice.
We begin each morning with breathwork and meditation. You will receive instruction in ancient techniques designed to calm your mind and prepare you for meditation. Rebecca and Jami will guide you through a variety of meditations and provide space and silence to apply what you have learned.
Yoga & Pilates
The daily, 75-minute mindful movement practices are comprised of a Hatha-inspired yoga sequence with Pilates exercises for deep core strengthening. These transformational practices will leave you feeling energized, balanced, and ready to take on the day’s adventures. Yoga mats and blocks are available for use, but you are welcome to bring your own.
What is our destination airport?
Book your destination to Marrakesh Menara International Airport. We recommend you book your flight time to arrive close to 4 pm local time so we can arrange transportation to Peacock Pavilions.
What is the weather like in September?
Temperatures are much cooler in November. The daytime averages around 72F. Expect nights to be cool, but pleasant. We recommend bringing additional layers to keep you warm (light rain jacket, light sweater), as the weather may vary. A shawl is nice to have on hand for the early morning practice or evening time.
Do I need travel insurance?
We highly recommend it.
Travelers wishing to travel to Morocco, by any means, must present a health form, to be downloaded online before boarding, duly completed. It will also be distributed at the airport.
You must also present a valid vaccination passport or a negative PCR test result less than 72 hours old. Children under the age of 12 are exempt from all requirements.
For full explanation of requirements, please visit the Morocco tourism website.
Do I need a visa?
Not if you have a US passport. If you are in a different country, you will need to review your local laws.
Do I have to share a room?
Yes, all rooms are double occupancy and shared rooms. This is a small group of only 14 participants. We will do our best to pair you up with someone you’ll match with. If you are traveling with someone, please let us know so we can pair you both together in the same room.
Do I have to attend all of the classes?
No. Though we encourage participation, attendance is optional. If you feel like sleeping in, reading by the pool, or taking some alone time, we encourage you to go at your own pace.
What if my partner/friend doesn’t do yoga or Pilates?
Each class will be curated for the participants at the retreat. Classes are made accessible for all levels and the teacher is skilled in guiding students from first-timers to the most seasoned practitioners.
Do I need immunizations?
Always check www.cdc.gov for the latest updates on CDC recommendations
What if I am a beginner or have not ever done Pilates or meditation?
Each class will be curated for the participants at the retreat. Classes are all-level and the teacher is very qualified in guiding students from first-timers to the most advanced. If you haven’t tried any of the systems, the teacher will guide you along the way and encourage you and offer plenty of modifications to fit any needs of the participants.
Is there anything special I need to bring?
It’s good to bring warm and cool layers to adjust to the fall weather. Bring your own yoga mat or props if you prefer.
What if I have a food allergy or dietary restriction?
Please e-mail us and we will work with the retreat center to accommodate you.
May I spread my payments out for the trip?
Yes, we will need a $1000 deposit at the time of sign-up to hold your spot. After that, you may divide the remaining balance into two payments. The entire balance must be paid by September 1, 2023.
What is the cancellation policy?
If the retreat is postponed due to border closure, a credit will be given for a future date. If Peacock Pavilions needs to cancel the retreat, participants will receive a refund.
If for some reason you are unable to attend, you have two options: you may either transfer your registration to another person, or we can attempt to find someone to fill the slot for you. If a replacement is found in either case, we will refund your remaining balance minus the deposit.
