Bab Zouina offers a unique, authentic and friendly retreat location in the Ourika Valley, a peaceful place at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, near Marrakesh. We focus on healthy mind & body, promoting learning and exchange while encouraging moments ‘connected’ to nature and to oneself.  Our teachers are carefully chosen, favouring small classes, thus preferring quality to quantity.

We work with some of the world’s leading yoga teachers to deliver the highest quality yoga retreats. 
Our retreats include Hatha, Iyengar, Yin, Flow, Kundalini, Ashtanga, Sivananda and Jivamukti yoga.

Besides yoga, you can also join retreats & workshops with teachers from around the world as well as
local craftsmen. These include calligraphy, music, flamenco, iokai shiatsu. Additional activities such as trekking, Sahara Desert trips & excursions to local markets & Marrakesh can be arranged.

Bab Zouina is a traditional riad and purpose built yoga studio located in a little bit of Paradise on earth. Surrounded by gardens & trees, the spacious accommodation & the terraces provide peaceful places to practice yoga, relax & unwind.

Created as a home, Bab Zouina (Beautiful Door in Moroccan) has grown into a retreat facility. Our team comes from the surrounding villages & we work to create real added value in the Ourika Valley by relying on local skills & contributing to the local social & economic development.
