Explore Inspiring Marrakech With Adrienne & Alice

Join Adrienne and inspirational yoga and meditation leader, Alice Bowmaker, in Marrakech from 28th October to 3rd November, 2020 and explore new creative outlets, access your inner goddess, and take home memories (and treasures too) from enchanting Morocco! Stimulate your senses and explore the abundance of creativity in the 'Red City' as you visit the talented artisans, explore hidden ateliers, shops and historic sites, design museums, and the hidden flea market full of treasures. Learn about decorative Moroccan design elements and the symbolism in Berber carpets through Adrienne's informative talks, and participate in a Moroccan cooking class where you'll enjoy the fruits of your labour over a delicious lunch. You'll also have a chance to pamper yourself with a luxurious Moroccan hammam at the gorgeous Hammam de la Rose, www.hammamdelarose.com .

You’ll stay at the charming riad, Maison 28, in the heart of the Marrakech medina, for this exclusive design, yoga and shopping retreat filled with special experiences. Five per cent of all fees will be donated to girls' empowerment and educational charity Project Soar, based just outside of Marrakech. See www.projectsoarmorocco.org for more information.

Delicious breakfasts and dinners will be cooked up by Maison 28's resident chef. Lunches and two dinners will be enjoyed outside Maison 28. You'll also have the chance one evening to explore Marrakech restaurants on your own.
