Love & Nourish is a one of a kind retreat created by Dr. Sadaf Lodhi and Dr. Basma Faris, two board certified OBGYNs, in partnership with Qarrya Retreats. This retreat is for professional women in midlife in need of a mind and body refresh. Dr. Lodhi has special expertise as a menopause and sexual health specialist as well as being an intimacy coach and TEDx speaker. Dr. Faris is a nutritionist and culinary medicine specialist. This unique collaboration helps women to love their bodies and themselves through education on menopause, sexual health and nutrition all the while combining coaching to help women get unstuck in their lives and move forward with grace through their midlife transition. 

Start each day with yoga in amazing surroundings. Every day will feature a focused workshop with either Dr. Faris or Dr. Lodhi, but will also leave time for enjoying the beauty and hospitality of Morocco.
