Nabil's first experience in yoga comes after 15 years of entrepreneurship in Canada. He went to a Bikram Yoga class with a discovery intention and ended up emotionally attached to the practice. The effect might be due to the 1.5 hour of heat in 6 months freezing city, however, he is deeply convinced that the real reason behind this connection is the similarities between the Bikram essence and the entrepreneurial spirit. The intensity and effectiveness of the Bikram class have the magical effect of washing out the brain and cleansing the heart; it is draining and energizing at the same time.
Aurelie M. Scally
After seven beautiful years spent in Paris and Casablanca as an art journalist, Aurelie discovered yoga by meeting the man who is her husband today. Therefore, her first contact with the discipline was through Bikram. Within the practice, she could find the precision and concentration of her youth’s dance classes. Then, comes Savasana, the final meditation that adds some magic to these genuine moments of happiness. Following two years of intense practice, she gave way to the temptation of undergoing rigorous training to be able to teach and open a yoga studio.
From an early age, yoga was part of Gabe Scally’s life. Having spent his teenage years in yoga studios in Casablanca and Montreal, Gabe has a strong understanding of the business development and management aspects of the wellness industry. Graduate of a business school, he deepens his knowledge in the world of yoga by training in Power yoga and Yin Yang yoga in France in 2017, and the method of Bungee Workout in 2018. He has been teaching at Om Yoga for three years. Since the summer of 2018, he has managed the studio Om Yoga Casablanca.
After studying international communication, Valérie naturally turned to a career in the business world. At age 38, she took her first yoga class at the Om Yoga studio, which she describes as a love at first sight. Two years later, she attended Hatha Yoga training with Noah McKennah and took the opportunity to give her first classes in the studio. A revelation: giving lessons gives her as much pleasure as taking them! She followed that with a second training in Yin Yoga and decided to stop all other activities to focus solely on yoga. Valerie loves to dedicate her passion to beginners.
Ana Ilieva Andonova
Ana discovers yoga as she builds her doctoral thesis to compensate for an intense intellectual life. After a degree in Philosophy, complementary studies in Antropology and Archeology, a doctorate in History of Science and a Master in Languages and Philosophies of Antiquity, she found in yoga an art of living that will mark her destiny. She has been practicing since her first Ashtanga Yoga Mysore style class. She has studied with teachers such as Nicholas Paul Evans, Elena Figarola, Radha and Pierre Seghir, and for the past ten years she has been working with her teacher Peter Sanson.
Graduate in business management and passionate about marketing and communication, Farida first worked as a consultant for many public and private Moroccan or international organizations. For more than 12 years, she headed the sales and marketing department of the multinational DHL in the Maghreb, a major participant in its growth. Citizen, passionate about ethics, Farida is involved in many causes: humanitarian, social, environmental. Her passion for dance and the arts gives her an active lifestyle and a constant search for well-being.
After 5 years of daily practice, Nadia went on her first 200-hour Hatha Yoga training in Bali. She was then trained in Aerial Yoga techniques by the Canadian Geneviève Berube, co-founder of the AirYogalates method. It is in France that she will be certified in Power yoga, Core yoga, and Yin yoga.

"wonderful experience "
This crew made us feel like family members, from the home cooked food in Casablanca and the hospitality of Amin and Nabil to the comfortable experience we felt in while staying there. I highly recommend this retreat in Casablanca or Marrakesh to any one who wants to relax and deeper he's knowledge in yoga
from United States, August 2019
The Om Yoga villa was quiet and peaceful and felt unique to the region. The home cooked meals were quite good and the instructors and manager felt like friends. Amine, the manager, was very willing to show us the city, which was something we were interested in. I loved all of the yoga classes as well, especially the aerial restorative!

"Absolutely fabulous "
Om yoga Casablanca was a perfect retreat.
The abundance of different classes with different techniques was unique.
There was so much choice. All the teachers were of a high level. They made me feel so welcome.
The staff at the retreat were so professional.
I was relaxed all of the time.
The area in Casablanca where the retreat is situated is so close to the beach.
The food was amazing, three beautiful meals a day, vegan and vegetarian.
I was a solo traveller with limited yoga experience but I came away with such an inspiring insight into yoga practice, thank you om yoga

"A retreat that is under construction"
The classes and retreat environment offered were good overall with many options to try. The local community is very much a part of this studio and the instructors are knowledgeable. The studios were lovely and well-equipped. The room I stayed in was clean, and food was plentiful and healthy. Some of the staff offered insightful tours throughout the city each day.

"40th birthday treat retreat "
For my 40th birthday treat retreat I the ‘all-you-can-eat-yoga’ set up of Om Yoga Marrakech. The Mövenpick 5-star Hotel itself is very nice and lives up to expectations with its pools, on-site restaurant and Spa facilities, it’s easy to feel instantly relaxed and comfortable. The Om Yoga Studio is situated between one of the hotel restaurants next to a pool and one of the room blocks.
The studio is instantly calming on entry; rooms with floor to ceiling glass walls, wooden flooring, impressive Moroccan light shades and a tranquil large water feature.
I booked a 5 day retreat and arrived in time for Tarin’s hot vinyasa class- perfect for unwinding after a long journey! I managed 14 classes over 5 days.
I had SO much fun experiencing yoga styles: Relaxing meditative Nidra & Yin, stretchy Hatha & flowing Vinyasa, energetic hardcore Bikram with Nabil (The focused on body positions- amazing!) and my absolute favourite Aerial yoga (I’m HOOKED thank you to amazing yogis Tarin, Brianna and Alex). I didn’t get to try Afro beats, yoga dance, Pilates or SUP yoga but it’s an excuse to return ☺️
ALL of the staff at Om Yoga are super friendly, welcoming and engaging. They all demonstrate professionalism and have an excellent knowledge and understanding of the principles of yoga. There’s SO much on offer it’s impossible to be disappointed. I thoroughly recommend Om Yoga Marrakech and hope to return one day on my yoga journey! Merci. Namaste 🙏 Eli ☺️

"The relaxing Oasis everyone needs"
i had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Om Yoga! There were plenty of classes to choose from (I did 14 classes in 5 days!) and the instructors were great. Some classes are primarily in English and some in French, but they are accommodating if you do not understand French. I liked the variety of classes, so i could do several per day and not get bored.
Although this is not a hotel with a concierge, the staff were all extremely friendly and willing to help me figure out what to do and see. I did one outing with one of the staff members (for a small fee) and one on my own with a tour i found on tripadvisor.
The neighborhood is beautiful and it's a short walk to the beachfront.
The food was mostly vegetarian and all delicious! It's not like a restaurant where you pick from a menu, although they will accommodate any dietary restrictions you have. There is one meal prepared for the group and you eat together at set times each day (They will make exceptions if you want to do a class during the same time). Personally i loved this, but it might not be for everyone. I liked the break from having to plan my own meals, shop for food, or pick a restaurant, etc...it was nice just having it all decided and done for me! There is also no alcohol, not as a policy, it's just not offered.
My room was very comfortable and quiet. There is AC but the weather was so gorgeous i hardly needed it.
I left feeling relaxed, refreshed, stronger and healthier. i highly recommend Om Yoga!

"Hidden gem. Everything you expect in a retreat and more "
I stayed at the villa last week and cannot recommend the place enough. The rooms are clean, studios are large and airy and the best part is the staff and teachers are all wonderful.
The classes are regular and very varied. All the teachers put their heart and sole in to the classes and help beginners like myself.
Nothing was too much trouble for the manger and anything I wanted was arranged.
The villa is in a great location and close to the surfing and beach. Nothing was any trouble for the staff and I was made to feel at home.
The yoga was very varied and a big thanks to Mariana (beautiful job) and Yulia who helped me in and outside the classes.
Last but not least the food is to die for. Varied, healthy and so nice.
from Saudi Arabia, August 2019
"Everything was just perfect."
All staff are very helpful. Yoga teachers and surf instructors are very professional. A manager Amin is always ready to help and give the guests any assistance they might need. The general atmosphere is very friendly and relaxing. The food was great too.
from Great Britain, August 2019
"Life enhancing "
The manager, the adventure, the laughs!

"Best idea ever to go to Casa to Om Yoga Retreat"
Alle waren so freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Kurse gut über den Tag verteilt und ich konnte selbst festlegen, wie viele Stunden ich am Tag mache. Mir noch unbekannte Yoga Varianten konnte ich ausprobieren (SUP Yoga, Bikram, Wall). Auch meine mangelnden Französisch Kenntnisse waren hier gar kein Problem. Alle Lehrer konnten mir die Positionen auch auf English ansagen. Auch Flexibilität bei den Essenszeiten war kein Problem, für den Fall, dass ein Spaziergang oder Stadterkundung länger dauerte. Ich bin selten in so kurzer Zeit so runter und zu mir gekommen. Top.
Bei den Lehrern fehlte noch Martina. Sie war super und nahm sich auch außerhalb der Kurse Zeit sich mit mir über "Gott und Welt" zu unterhalten. Top!!!!
from Great Britain, July 2019
Gabe and the team were super helpful throughout and really enjoyed the variety of classes and meeting other people staying there.
from Republic of Korea, July 2019
The facility was clean and comfortable and the food was great. Don’t go with thoughts of losing a few pounds! The pool area was very relaxing and the instructors were friendly and knowledgable.

"Everything at OM Yoga was exceptional "
The staff at OM Yoga were beyond helpful, whatever you needed, they were always around. They were always so friendly and welcoming. I truly felt like I was at home. The food was delicious ! From day one Doug was responsive and always around if I had a question or needed some guidance. Gabe was extremely helpful as well during my stay. I would absolutely recommend OM Yoga. I loved being able to practice different styles of yoga that were offered, the teachers were extremely knowledgeable. Anyone who is looking to get away, relax and dissolve themselves in yoga, this is the place!
from Italy, April 2019
"Loved my time at the retreat"

"More than I expected"
This place is really special. They met me with breakfast when I arrived and the room was really nice. It is super clean and the yoga studio rooms are big and open. All the teachers were great and you got to know some of them as they live and eat there too. The food is amazing and it’s made by their own cook. 🙏🏻 It’s a really cool place and I definitely want to go there again!

"Great yoga retreat, highly recommended."
I loved the people there, all very friendly, welcoming and fun. I felt at home with everyone. The staff is super nice, the professors very competent and friendly, and the other customers super nice too.
from Great Britain, January 2019
All the staff tried to accommodate my every need. The location is ideal away from
The noise but close enough tuo the beach to walk.
from Great Britain, December 2018
This may have been my first Yoga retreat, but I was planning my next one on the day I arrived. Time spent on this retreat was exactly the tonic I needed; it was divine. The classes encouraged me to push my body to its limits and the meals were utterly delicious.
Doug was an incredibly helpful and attentive host (as was every single member of staff) and I felt fully supported and safe during my stay. My one regret was that I could only spend 3-nights at this establishment. As soon as I'd gotten into the rhythm of things, it was time for me to leave. I was surprised at how sad that made me feel.
This will not be my last vist to Om Yoga.
from Great Britain, December 2018
Everything was wonderful! The staff, accommodations, food, and classes were great! I highly recommend!! Thank you, Om Yoga!!!!

"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.
from United States, September 2018
Everything was great! I loved the variety of yoga classes available.
from France, February 2020
Une retraite que je recommande à tous ceux qui souhaitent un vrai break, au soleil, avec tout le confort nécessaire pour décompresser. Des cours de qualité, une cuisine végétarienne délicieuse, le tout dans une ambiance familiale et chaleureuse.
Un oasis de bien être où tout ce que vous avez à faire est choisir les cours que vous voulez prendre et vous laisser aller...
J’ai passé un super séjour !! Merci à toute l’équipe et particulièrement à Imane pour son accompagnement chaleureux de À à Z.

"A peaceful getaway in Casablanca"
For tourists who come to Morocco after a long-haul flight to explore exotic Moroccan cities and at the same time, to practice Yoga abroad like me, Om Yoga Casablanca is a good start for their travels before moving to Marrakech and any other cities in Morocco. The best thing of Om Yoga studios is that they provide diverse yoga classes from Yin, Hatha, Vinyasa to aerial, wall yoga, standing up paddle yoga, etc., which I might need to register for more than 2 studios in case I want to takes all those classes in other countries. Unfortunately, I could experience only a few, different classes because I stayed there for 4 days in low season including weekend. But still, it was good stay there. Manager, Amine and instructors took good care of small group of us with considering individual needs and as we were a few, there were quite enjoyable mealtime conversations in a more tranquil and intimate atmosphere everyday. I wish I could take various classes intensively from Monday to Friday if I have a chance to come back there again in high season.
Thank you for your care, Amine, Mariana, Yulia and Om Yoga team.

"Personnel hyper sympathique et bienveillant !"
Joli studio , très calme et apaisant ! Le gérant Amine est adorable et très accueillant. J'ai été entendu lorsque j'ai demandé à changer de chambre car mon lit était trop petit. Le studio était très calme à cause des fêtes de l'Aid , nous avons eu droit à des cours particuliers avec les professeures en résidence. Le quartier est super bien placé à 5 min à pied de la corniche!
Les professeurs de yoga étaient très professionnels , les cours sont très sportifs, approche peu spirituelle.
from France, August 2019
