Making new friends
One reason people consistently state for coming back to Healthy Options again and again, is the relaxed, friendly and diverse crowd that we attract. People of all ages and all walks of life come together and have a great time with us. Because we operate with small groups, even if you travel alone, you’ll never be alone in a crowd. Making new friends is easy and our friendly staff are always on hand for help, guidance or simply a chat over a glass or two of wine.
Safety and wellbeing
We’re aware that coming to a city like Marrakesh can be a bit daunting, especially if you are travelling alone, which is why from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you can always be in the company of either our own staff, our agent’s transfer staff or tour guides, or the staff of the Riad Dar Justo. We include a variety of guided day and evening excursions to help get the most out of your visit to this beguiling city. If you wish, there’s no reason not to go exploring by yourself, as long as normal care is taken as you would in any major city.
A real Yoga programme...
All our staff are highly experienced and professional, but above all friendly and approachable. You can read more about our teachers‘ qualifications here.
The Yoga lessons are truly best-in-class. At least three different teachers offer you a variety of Yoga styles and specialisations. Classes are suitable for all levels, but especially tailored for intermediates and beginners. Our teachers offer you a choice of Vinyasa Flow, Satyandanda, Yin Yoga as well as meditation and Yoga Nidra. You are welcome to attend as many classes as you like. If you want to balance and tone your muscles even further, then why not join in our mat Pilates classes available throughout the week, improving your overall condition and flexibility as well as your core body strength. To get you into even better shape, we offer fitness walks and runs. We want you to go home healthier and happier, and we know how to make that happen!
Do as much or as little as you like
Don’t worry though, you‘ll never feel any pressure to join in - all of our holidays come with our Do as much or as little as you like-guarantee. This means we will never bother you if you'd sometimes prefer to simply relax, read a book, catch some sun on the rooftop looking to the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, or simply spend time on your own. Just know that whenever you’re ready to join in, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
Small holiday groups
Our Yoga classes are taught in small groups to make sure that everyone gets plenty of personal attention. This way, our professional teachers can help you get the most out of your exercise, which can turn out to be a lifelong benefit. This does mean our holiday places are limited so early booking is advisable, especially as flight prices are usually cheaper the earlier you book. This way you save money and guarantee your choice of holiday date.
...with a real holiday experience!
It would be a shame to visit Marrakesh, which is a UNICEF World Heritage site, without exploring the incredible exotic nature of this amazing city. This holiday offers you the option to get to know a little about its history and culture, explore the spectacular countryside and meet the locals. This should be a Yoga holiday you will never forget.
Day trips and nights out
What sets Healthy Options apart from more retreat-like Yoga holidays, is that we combine high-quality Yoga with a relaxed attitude and plenty of other activities. After all, this is your holiday we’re talking about! While the sunshine alone could be enough reason to come to Morocco in autumn, we believe you shouldn’t visit Marrakech – a UNESCO world heritage site – without exploring the magnificent surroundings. We will take you on a breath-taking tour of the nearby Ourika valley, in the awe-inspiring foothills of the Atlas Mountains, where we’ll have lunch with the welcoming locals.
Marrakech's centrepiece attraction, however, is the mesmerising Jemaa El Fna square in the ancient city. Here your senses will explode as the square warms up with its live musicians and revelry. One of the nights we come here for dinner at the beginning of the evening and watch the square slowly come to life. Another evening trip is to the entrancing Dar Es Salaam restaurant, famously frequented by people such as Winston Churchill, Alfred Hitchcock and Sean Connery. Here you'll be treated to a splendid display of live music and authentic belly dancing shows.
If you like shopping but you don’t like to venture out on your own, we'll show you around the souks where all manner of goods and traditional craftwork is sold. Read more about the trips and other activities, or see the photos.
Spa treatments and massages
Finally, your holiday experience wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Le Bain Bleu, a luxurious hammam and spa right next door to the hotel, arguably the best in all of Marrakesh. One hammam session is already included in your package, but there are many more treatments and massages available to you.
