Language of instruction

Please note that classes are offered in both French and English. If you do not speak one or the other, please inform the instructors directly and they will be happy to make necessary adjustments.

Aerial yoga

Aerial yoga combines traditional mat yoga with postures suspended in soft fabric hammocks. With the help of gravity and the hammocks, you can playfully explore floating, fluid movements, and create space in your bodies without compressing your joints and spine. The feeling in the body is exquisite.

Ashtanga one and two

Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915 - 2009). This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.

Barre au sol

The barre au sol uses the daily exercises of the dancers by using the barre for warm-ups before moving to the middle which uses traditional ballet techniques. Upon practicing the barre au sol, the body has the advantage of support surfaces and gravity plays differently on the force exerted on the muscles and joints. The position of sitting or lying down allows the students to focus attention on the alignment of the body and concentrate on parts that are difficult when done standing up.

Bikram yoga at Om Yoga Casablanca

Bikram is a wonderful 90-minute workout that improves fitness, flexibility, and balance as well as increasing mental alertness and concentration. Each session consists of 26 postures and two breathing exercises practiced in a heated room. Heat improves circulation, helps eliminate toxins, and reduces the risk of injury during stretching.

Though it can be challenging, it is open to students of all ages and levels. The Bikram method was created to help people overcome the increasing stress of modern life and was designed to prevent illness, injury but assist with weight loss, and reduce the effects of aging.

Fit flow fly

Fit flow fly was developed from Ashtanga yoga and made famous by Dice and Briohny Smith-Klein. Also called energy yoga, fit flow fly is a safe way to prepare your body for the challenge of inversions and arm balancing postures.

Hatha yoga at Om Yoga Casablanca

Hatha yoga is based on the postural practice of asanas and pranayama breathing and is open to students of all levels. It allows beginners to take the time to learn the basics at their own pace and can consist of both static postures and dynamic flows, such as the popular sun and moon salutations. The emphasis in Hatha yoga is on breathing and the fusion of mind and body.

Pilates

This is a method of exercising that lengthens and stretches all the major muscle groups in the body in a balanced fashion. All exercises are performed in harmony with breathing, concentration, and movement control.

Power yoga at Om Yoga Casablanca

Power yoga is a series of dynamic movements designed to develop muscle strength, flexibility, and breath control. Closely modeled on the Ashtanga method, Power yoga is a vigorous fitness-based approach to the Vinyasa style. Regular practice ensures many benefits, namely the relaxation of the body and the development of balance.

Vinyasa yoga at Om Yoga Casablanca

Vinyasa yoga consists of various sequences of postures. Postures are combined to create a dynamic flow with focus placed on synchronizing the movement and breathing. Vinyasa develops strength and flexibility and provides a considerable cardiovascular benefit and increased fitness level to all practitioners.

Yin yoga at Om Yoga Casablanca

It is a gentle form of yoga that is suitable for everyone and is practiced mostly on the floor. It consists of twenty postures each held for up to several minutes, during which time the focus is on breathing and meditation.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra or 'yogic sleep' is a sleep-like state which yogis report to experience during their meditations. Yoga Nidra, lucid sleeping is nidraong the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.
