PILATES & YOGA RETREAT IN MARRAKECH REGION, MOROCCO with Liz Chandler & Bea Fritzsching

28th May – 4th June, 2022 (Saturday til Saturday)

Join Liz and Bea for a week of heart centred yoga and Pilates at Tigmi, a retreat hotel that will redefine your idea of relaxation…

Now that travel has opened up again we are so excited to announce this special opportunity to breathe in the sunshine in peaceful surroundings with the gift of movement, breath, time and space.

Tucked away from the hubbub of Marrakech on the outskirts of a traditional Moroccan Berber village, with the snow-capped Atlas Mountains and distant lights of Marrakech as your backdrop. Plenty of secluded corners, two swimming pools, a hammam and a rooftop studio to enjoy daily yoga and Pilates classes with plenty of time to relax and unwind. There are opportunities to visit the Atlas Mountains or the souks in Marrakech. 

This retreat runs during the UK half term break, a perfect chance for teachers and those who are tied to the school calendar to escape. We offer non-participating rates for partners and older children. Tigmi is also able to offer extra nights before or after the retreat dates so that you can take advantage of the reduced flight costs around that time.

Liz and Bea successfully interweave the beauty of yoga and Pilates, demonstrating how they influence and deepen each others practice. Their unique approach and timetable makes it possible to cater to all levels from the novice to the teacher.

‘I have enjoyed every single session and always left feeling better at the end of the session than I did at the beginning. I often arrived straight from work feeling fraught and tired but left feeling up-lifted and lighter. I feel that I released the child in me; not the wounded child but one who loves to play and run with the wind.’ – Victoria

Feedback from Touching Shoulders workshop:
‘I have attended several workshops for teachers with Liz Chandler and all have been superb. Such a wealth of knowledge imparted with clarity and a mind to practical application. Liz is thorough, caring and practical. The last workshop I attended though was just amazing. I learnt techniques that have helped an old shoulder injury which several physios have not been able to help me with. Techniques that I am now using with clients to amazing effect. I cannot recommend Liz enough. She is just brilliant!!– Heidi Dorschler 

‘Just to say I really enjoyed your Touching Shoulders and More workshop.  I came away with different strategies for working with clients with shoulders issues, lots of practical ideas and a list of resources to explore.  Thank you’– Shauna Wheeldon
