Program

Enjoy your stay in Omassim Guesthouse. Whether you are seeking a wellness break or a more active vacation - additional wellness treatments and activities like surfing lessons, hiking, mountain biking trips or creative evening events can be arranged. Create beautiful memories and let Omassim be one of them!

Depending on your arrival day, you will be able to enjoy a max of 12 yoga classes per week:

  • 6 days Vinyasa Flow Morning Class (no morning yoga on Saturdays)
  • 6 evening soft flow or Yin Yoga Class (no evening yoga on “dinner-out-day”)
There will also be a meditation meeting (30 minutes) before evening yoga class (no meditation on Saturdays and dinner-out-day).

The yoga classes
Yoga is for everyone, so you do not need to be an aficionado, nor to be in top form. Each class includes the practice of pranayama (breathing exercises), asanas (seat, posture) and savasana (relaxation at the end of the class). The morning classes will be the Vinyasa Flow, a gentle practise of Hatha yoga which focuses on the synchronization of the breath (prana) with the postures (asanas). It is a dance of the asanas always in connection with breathing to calm the mind.

Let the breath be your guide to liberate your mind and increase your inner peace, harmony, love and joy. Practising yoga will help to harmonize the nervous system, increase the sense of balance of body and mind and strengthens the lymphatic system.

Traditionally the evening classes are more soft, slow, restorative or yin yoga to integrate the day and prepare for a great rest for the night. Let yourself emerge into the flow of your yoga practice. Enjoy breathing, and relax deeply your body, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and also your mind. Let yourself lead your own breath through a class full of regeneration, recreation, and calm.

Optional activities
Surfing lesson
Surfing lessons for you with the local surf schools run by professional surfers can be arranged. Whether it's your first time or you are an experienced surfer looking for some tips, a lesson at any level can be arranged.
