Regular accommodation happens to be in a spacious shared triple room (same gender) with ensuite bathrooms & free wifi access. Single or double accommodation is bookable upon request / availability and with subject to surcharges.

On top of this very private Riad experience you will have the spacious rooftop for outdoor yoga practice, afternoon hangouts and sunbaths, as well as fabulous tasty food.

Dairy products, bread, cereal etc. can be brought into the country without an issue. Here you can find a comprehensive list of customs regulations regarding food and drink import.

Reviews

Urban Yoga Marrakech was wonderful Not only the food in the riad, the contact with each other, the contact with the staff was great. The riad itself is wonderful. Great clean room. And the yoga was accompanied by a super teacher.

All in all, the journey was successful and beautiful. The Nosade team has made everything possible so that the journey can take place as planned despite small obstacles in advance. The communication was always great, before the trip as well as with Sara on site. A very good care.

I really enjoyed the yoga retreat myself. The riad was very cozy and a little feel-good oasis in the middle of the city. The 2 yoga sessions a day were varied and I really liked it. Lauren was a great yoga teacher!

The Urban Yoga Retreat is a successful combination of rest and relaxation and the immersion in a new culture with all its facets. Especially nice was the bike ride in the middle of the city on the first day. So you get a great impression of the city and the culture.

The trip has aroused the desire to discover even more of the beautiful Morocco. I've always wanted to do a yoga retreat, and I've definitely made a good choice with Nosade!

Was already for the second time with Nosade in the desert and can only recommend it. The organization is top, the accommodations are beautiful and the team of Nosade very sympathetic and helpful. The yoga lessons with Feli were beautiful, we all loved it last year with Katrin. I was able to relax and enjoy a few quiet days. Looking forward to the next time desert,maybe even a little bit longer!

    Evelyn Stavrinidis

    Core Subject: Vinyasa, Tantric Hatha , Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, Meditation, Yin, Qi Gong Kung Fu, Shiatsu

    “I’m focused on cultivating awareness & balance through truly listening, offering the knowledge I’ve been taught by exceptional teachers and mentors, and through body work and facilitation. Whether it’s exploring presence of breath and qi, in movement or stillness, my sessions are designed to reinvigorate all the layers of being.” Evelyn is a 500hr certified teacher, with a background in vinyasa, tantric Hatha (inc. Pranayama, yoga nidra, meditation & yin), qi gong kung fu, shiatsu, disciplined self-study and an inquisitive mind. She facilitates one on one session in yogic practices, meditation and breathing techniques. Evelyn also offers shiatsu therapy and massage. These practices are a renewal of energy. She’s working with the physical, mental and energetic bodies. Zen, awareness and practice can help revitalise and shift habitual patterning. “Training in tantric hatha with zuna yoga taught me the dynamic exchange of breath and its ability to harmonise our experience. My diploma in shiatsu & oriental therapies taught me balance. It was more like life school really! I believe the symbiosis of different traditional techniques (kundalini, tantra, hatha yoga, taoism, shiatsu and chinese medicine) creates a stream to freedom in the mind-body connection. I teach in line with the lineages i’ve studied and in respect of the traditions and teachers before me.”

Location

Located in the Medina – Marrakech´s historical old town – our Riad is truly a living relict of the tales of thousand and one nights, While drifting through the Medina, you admit yourself discovering treasures everywhere in any shape: Spices, perfumes, handicrafts, carpets, jewelry. 

Between all the small shops you will find tiny fruit and vegetable stalls where farmers offer their freshly harvested products; old carriages serving as counters for fresh delicious bread.

Everything is surrounded by a bewitching smell. The whole city seems to be enchanted by the drumming and singing, by snake charmers and storytellers. Calm and coolness can only be found once entering the very narrow streets.

Marrakech, it is easy though to feel comfortable and at home despite its strangeness and fascination – in this sea of seething life, bustling action, loud shouts and the feverish, everlasting and never ending circle of boiling life.

Indeed no other city in the world deserves the name “Pearl of the South” more than Marrakech.
