Marrakech, Morocco— Reported by Coleman Bentley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
People can find relaxation, rejuvenation and balance anywhere. Bustling skyscrapers, remote cabins, rainforest suites, and mountain-top ski chalets; to each their own, as the saying goes. Palais Namaskar, a new five-star Oetker Collection resort tucked in a quiet valley between Morocco’s Atlas Mountains and Djebilet Hills, however, seeks to make that anywhere somewhere with the opening of their Perumal Koshy-led Yoga program.
Set upon one of the most singular landscapes on earth, the Palais Namaskar has already redefined luxury hospitality with the scope of and freedom within their grounds. With the unveiling of their intensive yoga program wavering on the September horizon, they look poised to re-write the formula yet again. Koshy will bring his one-of-a-kind Dynamic Progressive Fusion Yoga (a program he himself developed) to Morocco’s Palmeraie region, offering programs in all seven chakras. Designed to promote personal well-being, clarity, and connection with the outlying universe, Koshy—who began teaching yoga when he was only 12—infuses his program with the principles of Feung Shuei, allowing him to channel organic energies and universal rhythms into a revitalization experience without duplicate.
When combined with Chef Antoine Perray’s meticulously crafted vegetarian and dietetic menus—and complemented by the regal Eastern atmosphere and 41 spacious suites, villas and palaces—Palais Namaskar’s new yoga retreat may well become the new centre of balance for world-wandering yogis.
