You are invited to join us for a 5 night rejuvenating retreat with yoga, meditation, walking, spiritual inspiration and more at a stunning home-from-home away from it all Berber castle, Kasbah Angour, perched on a hill-top in the Atlas Mountains near Marrakech, with superb panoramic views. This eco-friendly boutique hotel will appeal to nature lovers and walkers, or anyone just wishing to escape and unwind in the simple tranquillity of the Moroccan countryside.
From the outset, it was designed and built with the environment at the forefront, and is surrounded by 10 acres of gardens containing a wonderful mix of plants and trees, including native mountain species. There are many different areas to enjoy and explore. The southern gardens are planted with flower beds, trees & lawn to stroll across and appreciate the delightful vistas. There are also extensive terraces where you can enjoy the sunshine. The northern side of the Kasbah has formal gardens, with rose and other flower beds, low hedges and fruit trees. There is a wonderful courtyard bordered by a pergola for al fresco dining. There is also a kitchen garden to the north-east of the Kasbah where many of the herbs & vegetables featuring in their menus are grown.
Accommodation is comfortable and spacious, with a rustic feel, befitting the setting. Rooms (all en-suite) are designed with traditional Moroccan materials: cedar and eucalyptus wood, red sandstone, hand-made clay tiles, locally-made furniture with Berber motifs.
Kasbah Angour supports the local community in a massive way. Not only does the hotel provide jobs but it also purchases everything locally supporting local farmers and businesses. Freelance guides and other professionals are also employed locally as they possess local knowledge and provide a unique awareness of the surroundings.

The benefits of retreating from our familiar surroundings and busy schedules and ‘pulling back’ are manifold. The word “retreat” comes from the Latin root meaning to ‘draw back’. If you’re willing to honestly challenge yourself, a retreat can be a life-changing experience. It allows you the space and time to contemplate life, reevaluate paradigms, and become better equipped to walk life’s Journey more consciously. On retreats, we have the opportunity to slow down our days and see ourselves and everything more clearly. A retreat is often a transformative experience that gives you time to restore, relax, reflect and re-awaken to health, happiness & wholeness. It’s a time to focus on you, go deeper into yourself, let go and open up to new possibilities.
A retreat opens the door for you to do something great for yourself, and in the process do something great for everyone you touch in your life. In turn, you’ll also be better able to support the people in your life – at work, at home, and at play – and contribute to their wellbeing as you contribute to your own….More
In silence we have the chance to allow our experience to be whatever it is. It helps us notice the world around us more clearly and rediscover the wonder of life. I always include a period of silence on my retreats. We move from silence into speaking again gently with the understanding that silent contemplation can be a powerful experience. Some people don’t want to give it up!
Investing in Yourself
Investing in your inner wellbeing and enhancement is the most important investment you’ll make in your life. There’s no other financial investment that will ever match because if you develop more competence, more skill, more ability, more capacity to take 100% responsibility for your life and become a joyful human being, the way you experience and express yourself and the world will change. Your activity will rise to a completely different level and you will become a catalyst for a more joyful, loving and inclusive world. Take some time to invest in yourself – retreat to replenish, renew, re-align and dive deep into your own inner journey. You’ll be glad you did!

what others say…
The whole experience was amazing. Mita really took us to new levels. The venue & teaching was second to none. Mita radiates energy & enthusiasm for yoga which is highly contagious. Definitely recommend her retreat!
A & S
Fantastic balance between yoga and exploring a new region. I would definitely recommend Mita as a teacher, as it has been effortless from the booking process until we returned. Everything was taken care of! I really enjoyed space to myself as well as the intimate connections with others. I feel amazing after the last 5 days.
The whole experience addressed my purpose to have some space and learn more about yoga. It met more than my expectations. With Mita, it’s not just about yoga, its about the whole spiritual journey and experience and living more consciously. Mita as a teacher is absolutely amazing, she really connects with everybody individually, she recognizes their strengths and challenges and guides them accordingly.
‘The experience left me with no adequate words to describe this feeling of rejuvenation of the whole of my being. Mita is so dedicated to imparting her knowledge of yoga – of the physical practice, the spiritual guidance and nurturing and healing the body with nutritious food and natural remedies. Her loving grace is so vibrant and evident to all who come in contact with her. I am truly blessed and feel so grateful for this opportunity of being part of this retreat. It has left me feeling more limber, more reflective and trying to accept the inevitability of this moment. Thank you Mita from the bottom of my heart.’
