"Home away from home"
Nabil and Aurelie welcomed me at their yoga studio in the Anfa neighborhood of Casablanca, which is very close to the beach and nearby shopping center. The experience was amazing, starting from great, Moroccon food to a wealth of yoga and pilates classes (Bikram yoga, Aerial yoga, wall yoga...just to name a few) with excellent teachers. If you are looking for a place to unwind but still close to the beach and shops and restaurants, then this is your place to go! After seven days of yoga retreat, I was well rested. I will definitely be back!

"Fijne week gehad maar niet zoals verwacht "
Om yoga is een fijne plek, heeft een mooie tuin waar je lekker kan relaxen. De kamer waar ik verbleef was echt perfect, goede bedden en alles wat ik er nodig had. Aan het zwembad dus ook heerlijk. Het concept dat je zoveel yoga lessen kan volgen als je wilt is ook heel erg prettig, op die manier kan je ook veel lessen uitproberen. Zo heb ik ook kennis gemaakt met Wall yoga (echt een aanrader!) en Aerial yoga. Ik heb echt de beste massage ooit gehad van Theo, die moet je sowieso gedaan hebben voor je naar huis gaat. Hele bijzondere ervaring. Het eten is lekker en heel erg afwisselend. De drankjes kunnen wel beter, eigenlijk krijg je alleen water en thee, bij het ontbijt wel melk en jus d’orange. Voor de sapjes moet je betalen. Ook moet je echt naar de hammam gaan. De moskee is ook een aanrader om te bezoeken. De staf was echt vriendelijk en bereid me overal bij te helpen om het zo comfortabel mogelijk te maken. Fijn dat je wordt opgehaald en weggebracht naar het vliegveld.

Die location ist familiär, sehr freundliche, entspannte Atmosphäre. Die Gegend ist sehr ruhig und sicher, in nur ca.10 Gehminuten kann man trotzdem das pulsierende Leben geniessen. Das Essen ist unglaublich köstlich, vielfältig und abwechslungsreich und von allem ausreichend. Das Essen wird eingenommen auf der Terasse am großen Tisch mit anderen Gästen oder drinnen in der gemütlichen Sofaecke. Man hat Gesellschaft, kann sich aber auch zurückziehen zum lesen,am Pool liegen und entspannen.

"Oasis Away From Home"
This retreat was exactly what I was looking for. It was the perfect escape in a safe environment where you could do as little and as much as you would like. I had opted to add cooking classes to my package and was very pleased to spend some quality time with the cook and learn a mix of different recipes. Every day, a delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner were served family style by the pool.
The yoga classes were extremely varied and were taught by high class instructors who really took the time to explain things well. Classes welcome yoga enthusiasts at all levels and I would definitely recommend guests to try as many of the classes as possible.
Even prior to my arrival, during the planning process Doug was extremely helpful in answering all of my questions in regards to the trip. I was even more pleased to meet him in person as he was the one waiting for me at the retreat upon arrival. He was just as helpful, friendly and welcoming in person.

The classes are very diverse, so you will have the chance of trying some yogastyles that you never have. This was very nice.
The classes are unlimited, which means you can do as many or as few as you would like.
What really made this trip was definitely some of the sweet staff at OM, who really welcomed me and provided guidance, service and friendship.
The host-couple took me and a teacher out for a wonderful dinner.

"A perfect, sunny, relaxing way to start my holiday season! "
Om Yoga Casablanca was my first yoga retreat and detox experience. Words that jump to describe this experience include: very enjoyable, relaxing, sunny, tasty traditional Moroccan food (and I also enjoyed the detox juices!), amazing like-minded inspiring people, large variety of yoga classes available and the possibility to do-what YOU want to do.
At Om Yoga everything is possible, you just need to ask. You set your schedule, whether you just want to chill by the pool, sleep all day, take 5 yoga classes per day, visit the Mosque, take the cooking classes, switch from cooking to detox, the staff is extremely flexible and willing to work with you to make the most of your retreat. We had an amazing group of yogi’s who all arrived around the same time and did many things together, but nothing was a must it was all about going with the flow. About the yoga: there are 3 different rooms where yoga is taught. The rooms all have wooden floors, windows, heating and yoga equipment (you can borrow mats and towels). They vary in size, one looks out over the pool and gets great morning sun (I enjoyed the 7am yoga classes here!), another is where hot power yoga and Birkam are taught, and the third one is the smallest and it’s where there is wall yoga. On average I did 4 classes per day and enjoyed trying different styles such as Yin (all about stretching), Bar, Wall and Aerial (such an amazing class) and Pilates. I recommend trying all available classes and then going back to your favs!

"A very good yoga retreat "
The quality of the yoga lessons were very good, and you could choose between several different kinds of yoga lessons every day.
from United Kingdom, April 2017
I really loved the concept of a yoga studio rather than simply a yoga retreat. Om Yoga offers various types of yoga that's open to the rest of Casablanca. The owners were always trying to please me as well - and as I was the only one there I felt more like an extended part of the family - which made my stay feel the more special. It was my first 4 day detox experience - and as pleasant a detox experience as one could expect! I was constantly distracted by the classes (yoga and non-yoga) that I could take, combined with the visit to the third largest mosque in the world, walks on the beach front or to the mall which were nearby. Classes to note are the aerial yoga (using hammocks), TRX and yoga barre. There are the usual other classes you would expect as well (ashtanga, bikram, vinyasa, yin etc.)
