Get Over Yourself

Marrakesh Retreat


22nd April – 29th April 2023

Welcome to our brand new retreat venue in Marrakesh. New home to our transformational  7 day Health and Wellness retreats. 

The Villa that we have chosen to host our retreats sits in over two acres of lush, beautifully landscaped gardens and shady terraces. An oasis of calm and tranquility yet it is only a short drive from the magnificent chaos of Marrakesh.

If you are feeling like you need a boost, a kickstart, time for yourself or even some weight loss then this is for you. (Although weight loss is always the bonus!)

You will be amazed at how much you can do, but we believe in balance as there will be plenty of time to chill on the sun loungers or take a dip in the heated pool too.

We cater for ALL fitness levels and you will never be left behind.

We work as a team and the camaraderie and support you will feel from us and the other guests is incredible.


This is not a pick and choose retreat. I know a lot of other venues say you can just choose to sit by the pool all day reading, if that is what you want to do. If it is…then I suggest you go to Champneys!

Seriously, we see great transformations in people who arrive thinking they are just not going to be able to do it…and they always do, because they take part…in everything! (Although we do give you a couple of free passes, but funnily enough they very rarely get used!)

Please be assured this is NOT a bootcamp or a yoga retreat, it is a wonderful mix of both, delivered with authenticity, empathy, encouragement and love.

What will I experience on a Retreat?

  • Short morning walks
  • Fitness classes
  • Yoga
  • Guided meditation
  • Heated pool with sun loungers
  • Silent reading
  • Lots of time to relax and spend time with yourself
  • Fresh and nourishing Juices/smoothies
  • Homemade soup
  • Atlas Mountains Trip (paid optional extra)
  • Spa, Hammam and Treatments (paid optional extra)


We are delighted to introduce you to our Yoga guru for the Marakesh retreat.
We have experienced a week with her and even Simon was converted into loving (or at least enjoying!) yoga!
Alice has been teaching for seven years and has lived in London, Glasgow, and now Dubai. 
While she takes yoga and its tradition seriously, she takes herself lightly and is equally passionate about continuing to make yoga and movement modern and relevant.
You’ll find her classes sensitively balance both technique and creativity so that her students come away feeling like they’ve really learnt something, but also at the same time having the opportunity to just get lost in the practice too. 

Whilst this will be our first retreat in Marrakesh we know how good it is going to be because we will create and enjoy the same energy and vibe that we and our guests created on our Portugal retreat which you can watch here!

The Retreats are structured in such a way to make them manageable.

I have seen so many people complete the 7 days, some haven’t exercised for years!

I want you to get the absolute most out of your week, both physically and mentally and I know how to do that so please do trust me!
You will leave feeling fitter and stronger in both body but more importantly mind, than you ever thought possible. Any inevitable weight loss will just be a bonus!

It truly is a special place. I want you to feel looked after and cared for while you challenge yourself at the same time.

All places are for a shared room. Please do not worry about this, we know it can make some people nervous but it really does end up adding to your retreat experience… amazing friendships have been made!

I want you to experience what it feels like to feel utterly fantastic…after just 1 week. It really is possible…after all…it is all in your head!

I want to inspire you and give you that belief so you can motivate yourself to make your own change. I want you to rediscover your MOJO!

I so look forward to seeing you there!

“Sally’s enthusiasm and zest for life is infectious. Her ability to change lives is phenomenal – she doesn’t even realise she has this gift and that is what makes her so special. Just love her to bits.”



“I have had incredible inspirational, motivational week. Skin is glowing, eyes are bright, I’ve lost many inches, and I’m so much fitter and stronger. I have received infinite love and support from an amazing group of people ❤️Thank you so much Sally.”



“Sally and the team are a force for good if you choose to listen, act and challenge your own self limiting beliefs.
Gratitude changes how you feel about everything. If you are sitting on the fence wondering, should I book it, can I afford it, what will it be like…treat yourself to a week of self care, where you leave your troubles at the bottom of the hill and find a new shinier version of you!”



“Thank you! The retreat was a real life changer! All the positive affirmations and discipline are really taking hold. I feel fantastic and more confident. I admire your authenticity, vulnerability and transparency of your emotions and experiences, it is a powerful gift and message. Thank you for sharing it…you changed everyone’s lives who attended.



Where is the Retreat based?

The retreat address is:

Villa Dinari,  Alpha 41
Lotissment Bouazaoui
Commune al Ouidane
Marrakesh, Morocco

The villa is just outside Marrakesh and only a 20 minute taxi journey from the airport.

Does the price include accommodation?
Yes, accommodation, juices, soups and all classes are included for your stay!
The only things not included are your flights.
I am worried about coming on my own and having to share a room.
We all feel out of our comfort zones when we do things on our own but these retreats are full of like minded people and the atmosphere and friendships that are made are fantastic bonuses.

Guests often comment that they have loved sharing a room at the end of the retreat! The rooms are spacious and beautiful and there are always areas to find your own peace in those moments you need it.

You can request a room to yourself but it would be almost twice the price.

I am worried that I will not be fit enough and will hold everyone up
This is always a worry for guests, whether they are coming to the 3 day retreat in the UK or on this 7 day retreat.

We cater for ALL fitness levels and truly believe that we should all work together as this creates an extremely supportive environment.

There are modifications in ALL the classes. Some guests have modified EVERYTHING and are still amazed at how effective this was. Do not ever feel bad for modifying…EVER!

What do I need to bring with me?
Lots of gym kit! It is up to you how often you change and also how you choose to dress in the evening. Some stay in gym kit for the soup and evening but most prefer to ditch the gym kit and wear something casual for the night.

  • A spare pair of trainers and socks – if you don’t want to get your new ones dusty on the walks.
  • A water bottle.
    You may want to carry a small rucksack if you want to carry water on the walks.
  • Some ear plugs and a sleep eye mask
  • Sun cream
  • Hair conditioner – shampoo and body wash is provided. There are hairdryers in the rooms too!
  • A book – there is a silent reading class!
  • A sense of humour and an open mind!
Is it for women only?

This is the same answer whether it is the UK retreats or Marrakesh but no it is not just for women. There does tend to be more women but men are very welcome. There are usually some men on every retreat even if they are sometimes dragged by their other halves!

I am allergic to Pineapple/Dairy/Banana etc.
We can accommodate any allergy issues and intolerances but please do be sure though to let us know beforehand and we can make adjustments. This is however not a pick and choose menu and just not liking something will not result in changing a recipe. 
You will be amazed that you can hardly taste your least favourite vegetable…so enjoy!
Do I have to take part in all the activities?
This is not one of those retreats where you can sit on your sun loungers relaxing with a book all day…this will not get you the life affirming results that I know can be gained.
We all work together and do all the classes (You do get 2 free passes!) It is hard to describe the incredible bond that is formed between the guests…and that is only made possible by all working together…even when you sometimes may not feel like it…its just incredible! Please trust me on this…and more importantly…trust yourself!
Will it be too hot?
We have chosen months when the Marrakesh weather is not at its hottest but the sun should be shining!
We walk first thing in the morning when it is cooler, often seeing the beautiful sunrise.
All the bedrooms, do have air conditioning…so you will still be able to get that much needed sleep after your exercise.
