Ryanair (ryanair.com) flies from Dublin to Marrakech on Sundays and Wednesdays.has a seven-night trip to Morocco departing May 17 from €870pp, including full-board, one meditation session and two yoga classes daily, but excluding flights.
It's not full-on yoga, all the time, in other words. Other days, excursions are laid on - a Hamman (Turkish bath), for example, where I am slathered in mud, then a tingling spice (clover, I think), followed by some luxuriant oil, then showered and scrubbed pink. We also go on an outing to an Argan oil co-op, complete with all-singing, all-dancing local women with toothy grins and colourful garb.
Her gentle approach and easy laugh makes the two-hour morning session fly.
Being a bit of a morning grouch, I'm dreading the 8am start, but the stunning view from the glass-walled yoga chalet dispels any misgivings.
It's a far cry from your regular Saturday night in Dublin, but a welcome relief from our routine excesses of parties, pubs and supermarket trollies.
