You will need to fly into Puerta Vallarta (airport code PVR). Our venue, Xinalani, is only accessible by boat. There is no road leading to the resort.

Please book arrival flights that land no later than 4pm on April 28th, 2018 and a departure flight that takes off no earlier than 11am on May 5th, 2018. All guests arriving at the airport after 6pm (as scheduled or due to delays or flight cancellations) will have to find their own accommodations at their own expense for the evening and will be transferred the following morning.

All departures from the venue before 8am will require an additional fee.

Once you arrive at the airport, you will be transferred by taxi or van from the airport to the pier and then transferred by boat from the pier to our retreat!

At the end of the retreat, any guests not returning to the airport must pay for their own transportation from the marina or may go to the airport and choose the transportation of their choice to go to your final destination.

Xinalani will send you detailed and illustrated transfer instructions and a transfer schedule 72 hours before your arrival. You will be greeted with a sign at the airport and staff members will coordinate your transfer at the pier.

If you do fly in early and stay at a different place prior to the retreat, you will need to meet the group directly at the pier, at your own expense.

You have nothing to do or worry about! Once you arrive, it is all taken care of. You simply just need to book your flight according to the suggested times above!

Xinalani's transfer coordinators make their best efforts to ensure a great experience and to limit waiting time at the airport or at the pier, but be advised that due to cars, vans, and boat availability, capacity and efficiency, in special group circumstances, you might have to wait at the airport or pier for up to 2 hours.

Jump in on this 7 day/6 night yoga retreat in Morocco! This will be a small group of six people only. This retreat is all about adventure and magic. There really are no words for this beautiful country. I am just so giddy to be going back and I can't wait to share the aliveness of this culture with you!

We will spend 2 nights at an amazing glamping resort, one hour outside of Marrakech in the desert!  We will be greeted with tea while overlooking the Atlas mountains. This experience will make you come alive. We will ride camels, indulge in candelit dinners and let the silence of the desert fill us to the brim.  Each tent is luxury glamping style, including comfortable beds, private toilets and bathrooms, and impeccable interior design.

On Tuesday, we will be transferred to Marrakech, to our own  private riad in the heart of the old town (medina). This 4 bedroom riad is tucked away so it is a quiet haven for us to relax, journal, enjoy the rooftop, practice yoga, and share meals. All of the food is handmade and the owner’s passion for health is represented within the meals. Each of the rooms has linens and other treasures that are handmade and are unique to this riad only. We will experience a local cooking class, where the chef will walk us through the markets as we gather ingredients, cook Moroccan food, and feast on a rooftop.  Use your time in the medina to shop your heart out and learn all about the signs and symbols of Marrakech.

This city is magic.

Come explore the beautiful country of Morocco. This retreat is a mix of adventure, culture, and total relaxation.

This is an all-levels yoga retreat.



Good question!  I love to include almost every single thing for you, so you don't have to do any thinking while nourishing your mind, body and soul on a yoga retreat!



2 days/2 nights at a luxury glamping location

5 days/4 nights in the medina at our very own private riad

2x daily yoga (aside from arrival/departure days)

endless stars and rooftops

Airport transfers (on arrival and departure days only)

Transfer to the medina on Tuesday

Camel ride in the desert

Cooking class

NOT Included:

Airfare, travel insurance, spa services, 2 lunches not included, gratuities, yoga mat



You will be picked up from the airport and taken to the desert camp, where luxury glamping tents await. 45 minutes from Marrakech, the camp offers stunning 360° views of the snow-capped Atlas mountains.

Your tent:

  • One queen size double bed or twin beds
  • A traditional Moroccan lounge area
  • A stretched cotton panel at the entrance with two chairs
  • An ensuite shower tent, Berber style
  • A private western toilet

STAY CLEAN: Water is a precious commodity in the desert (and everywhere). For your comfort, smaller "ensuite" tents house western toilets and small shower facilities.

On Tuesday, we will be transfered to our private riad together, situated in the heart of the Medina, old town, in the maze of souks… That is where the city of Marrakech was born. Here, between the spice market and Medersa Ben Youssef, between the common oven and the ‘hammam’ of the area, the riad was built right in the beginning of the 17th century. At that time, the house was the zaouïa of Derkaoua, a religious building of the brotherhood of the same name. In the middle of these walls with Saadian architecture, one prayed, meditated, exchanged in total serenity. This riad has preserved its tranquillity and its revitalizing energy. Here, you feel at home.

You can enjoy a book, a mint tea or a siesta in the shade. You can also go through the Spa of the house for a personalized massage, to live life simply.

Valerie Barkowski, creative director and designer, has restored, shaped, modulated the house according to her desires and inspirations. You will find her own designs and notice that every detail of the house has been taken care of.



You will need to fly into Marrakech (airport code RAK). When traveling from North America, I usually fly into a European city, such as Amsterdam or Paris, and then I buy a separate round trip ticket from that European city to RAK. It has saved me tons of money. If you choose this route, please contact me with questions and make sure you give yourself plenty of time between flights (as they are technically two different tickets).

On May 20th, upon arrival, you will be picked up and transferred to the desert glamping location. If you choose to arrive sooner to explore Marrakech, you will be given directions as to how to find the desert glamping location (in which you can arrange a taxi or walk) on arrival day.

We will be privately transferred on Tuesday to the medina.

On departure day, we will be transferred to the airport. If you have plans to stay in Morocco, we can organize a shuttle for you to be transferred elsewhere, for an additional cost.

**Please note that these transfers are included in your price, but any additional transfers or any transfers that are not on scheduled days, will be an extra cost.



Tea/Coffee/Juice 7:30 a.m.

Morning Yoga 8:00-9:30 a.m.

Breakfast 9:30 a.m.

Free time to relax on the rooftop (or desert, depending on what day it is), explore the aliveness of the medina, and nourish. Some days there will be excursions planned (cooking class, etc).

The Lotus Feed Retreat Center at Taylor Maid Farms rests on 108 acres of vital Sonoma coast nature. Its diverse landscape provides the most exquisite and magical experience of raw and cultivated beauty. From the redwood, fir and oak forests, to our thoughtfully designed circle gardens. Ocean view ridge-tops overlook our colorful and hidden creek beds; The Lotus Feed Retreat Center is blessed with a full palette of wonder.

Start your day with a pond side meditation and spend your day meandering through the medicinal herb gardens. Hike trails through fern groves or meander along the fresh water springs. Cultivate a relationship with the earth and lend a hand in the organic gardens harvesting the fruits and labor of the land to feast for the Farm To Table Communal Feast. End your day with a sunset yoga practice under the passion flower canopy and the rest of you evening can be spent star gazing by the fire pit.

The Lotus Feed has thoughtfully crafted the native land into a perfect classroom to dive into wild edibles and medicinals. The cultivated gardens and structures present learning experiences in permaculture and the peace and energy of the land provide a backdrop for transformation, learning and evolution. Farm to table meals will be harvested from the stunning circle garden and prepared in the outdoor pizza oven imported from Italy.

A medicinal making class and off-site wine tastings are part of this experience.

This is an all levels yoga retreat.
