Escape the studio – join us for a long weekend retreat in the vibrant and beautiful Marrakech. Workshops are held in the tranquil courtyard of our exclusive Riad, or on the roof terrace in the sunshine. Explore the medina, discover the lively souks of the city or relax by the plunge pool.
Learn to develop your aerial flow and find new inspiration on this retreat.
Workshops will help you to evolve your style, our instructors will guide you in experimental transitions, choreography creation, as well as some skill based aerial acrobatics. In the retreat workshops we will be using aerial silks, plus there is also some scheduled self-practice to give you time to develop what you have learnt.
In addition to the aerial workshops there will also be ground-based classes in partner acrobalance and conditioning. All activities and classes are optional, we aim to create a relaxed environment, so if you want to take a day off to chill and explore then by all means do so!
A tranquil oasis in the centre of the bustling and lively Marrakech, our private Riad is exclusively for guests of Aerial Escapes. Chosen for its charm and character, it is a truly unique setting for our workshops.
The Riad has been designed with just five individually styled en-suite bedrooms, a spacious roof terrace with plunge pool and a picturesque central courtyard. Moroccan influenced vegetarian cuisine will be prepared by the in-house cook and guests will enjoy breakfast and a three-course evening meal daily. Surrounded by gardens and in a central location, the Riad is the perfect base from which to explore the city.
