Lucy - My Story

Come to the Sea

You’re going through the motions with your life, and even though things are ‘fine’ there’s a not-so-silent voice often causing you stress…If only you could just get some time and space to think things through, and to better manage stress in your daily life – learn to enjoy living in the moment.

Sure, that weekly yoga class is giving you a little space to breathe, but you know you need more room if you’re going to clear away some cobwebs and walk on air.

How incredible would it feel to take a break from the noise and distraction and finally get the clarity and focus you need? 

Introducing Relax, Recharge and Reset: A transformative mini-break for busy bees or just those with a busy mind or schedule – who just really want to chill!

Do you want to treat your body to some much-needed R&R with rejuvenating yoga sessions, sunshine and good food so that you can feel uplifted and re-energised? As well as learning some valuable mindset skills you can apply to your life back home to help you relax and feel more positive.

If you said a big YES to any of these, then this long, luxurious weekend is perfect for you.

For a few special days in May we are retreating to the peaceful haven of Riad Les Deux Mondes, a stunning riad in it’s own grounds close the shores of the Atlantic in coastal Morocco.

Wake up the sounds of nature, practice and chill out on the vast pool terrace and sample the stunning bio cuisine, thoughtfully prepared for us by our naturopathic chef.

Feel the layers of stress peel away as you are guided to check-in with yourself and realign goals, habits and aspirations.

Lucy and Anji will facilitate a totally magical retreat experience, one that’s friendly, encouraging, challenging and joyful with a perfect mix of chill time, mindful workouts and coaching sessions. We’ve chosen to step outside the medina to find a luscious little peaceful haven all to ourselves, with gardens and a vast pool so we can lounge till our hearts are content. Set just 15 minutes from the medina – we can opt-in and opt-out to fit in with the chilled vibe of the weekend.

Let life’s pressures melt away in a heartbeat as you walk along the beach and kick back for some long overdue ME-time. Savour the best local flavours at social meal times and feel yourself come alive under the night sky.

Imagine, waking up fully – refreshed, ready to relax into your yoga mat and stretch your body, taking time to treat your body and connect with yourself. Switch up your mindset and relax and reset with our workshops, all jam packed with tips and tools to help you switch off.

Tune out from the hustle and bustle of life and get present with our guided daily meditations. Melt your cares away, if you choose, with a soothing massage, as you let expert practitioners rejuvenate your mind and body. Or if you feel need an adrenalin hit take a surf lesson, or just go local with a fantastic camel or bike trek.

  • An intimate, one-of-a-kind retreat
  • An escape just for YOU where you can refocus your priorities, refuel your passion and re-boost your self care
  • An educational environment where you’ll learn the tools, systems and strategies you need to confidently create balance, manage stress and live the life you want

The venue

Our retreat home is one of the best located riads close to Essaouira – in it’s own grounds with luxury swimming pool. Your Essaouira experience starts at the riad, a traditional Moroccan home, set just inland from the coast in it’s own beautiful gardens close to the rocky beach-scape of the south-east corner of this fortress city.

This stunning riad has 9 bedrooms and is comprised of two floors and a stunning rooftop terrace with views. A perfect spot for sunbathing and meditation. The riad is an oasis of calm to transport you to serenity over the weekend but we are just a short transfer away from the many restaurants, souks, cafes and shops in the medina, and only a few kilometres tranquil walk from both the coast.

While most visitors head for the mayhem of Marrakech or the rather charmless sun and sea resort town of Agadir, Essaouira offers something in between. Essaouira (pronounced ‘essa- weera’, or ‘es-Sweera’ in Arabic) is located on the Moroccan Atlantic coast about 2.5 hours west from Marrakech. The historic Medina, the majestic ramparts, the beach, the culture, the nature … once you enter Essaouira, you will fall in love with the charm and beauty of the city. More details available at Riad Les Deux Mondes:
