Perks we LOVE about Casa Om:
63 Acres of forest and fields with trails: Exploring the land is so healing and important to our well being.
Potomac River Access: The sweeping views of the river are spectacular. With a light hike, you can head down to the river for kayaking or swimming as well. The more adventurous can kayak across to the C & O canal.
The famous Indian River Cave and Whitings Neck Cave is nearby. This is a very special experience to explore and its epic for meditation and mantra chanting.
Roast marshmallows, set intention, tell stories, and star gaze in the vast open sky

Emily & Ally together bring you over 30 years of practice & teaching experience!
Not only have they personally benefited from incorporating yoga and intention based practices into daily life - Over their decade of teaching they have witnessed first hand the power yoga has to transform and heal the whole person, regardless of circumstances or conditions.
They are beyond ecstatic to continue to offer these tools and techniques to you, on a deeper level, so you can integrate them into your life and share them with your community. From group classes, adventure retreat, and teacher trainings Emily & Ally deliver a raw & authentic journey!.
Ally Hughes (E-RYT 800) is the Director of Education and International Retreats. She is also the Co-Founder of True Moon Yoga Studio.
Ally has dedicated more than 15 years into the practice of yoga and has been leading domestic and international yoga retreats, teacher trainings, workshops, and classes for over 10 years.
Her yoga journey began in Hawaii in 2005 where she studied Mysore Ashtanga Yoga, under Norman Allen. In 2009 she began to expand her studies into other styles of yoga and Vedic philosophy, deepening her understanding of anatomy, bio-mechanics, physiology, and the relation of somatic movement in healing trauma.
Ally has integrated this experience and wisdom into her teaching style offering transformational yoga retreats and teacher trainings. She has taught over 5000 hours in Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Rocket Ashtanga, Yin, and Trauma Informed yoga teacher trainings, workshops, classes and holds accreditation as a 200-hour Teacher Training School through Yoga Alliance. Over the years she has lead 8 yoga teacher trainings and hosted 6 yoga & adventure retreats.
Ally’s teaching style beautifully blends the hard and soft aspects of yoga. Her classes are accessible to all level practitioners, while challenging one to dive deeper finding strength, courage and the ability to have fun.
Her classes are often described as adult play time, but Don't let her easy going and adventurous side fool you. She has the power to take you on a serious meditative journey. Come prepared to challenge, but not judge, yourself to levels you never knew you could reach!
Emily discovered yoga in 2005. She began taking classes at a local studio. At first, she would join class twice a week, but within six months, she was practicing every single day and sneaking out of work early to catch sessions. That’s when she realized that yoga had become the most important thing in her life. She enrolled in a 9-week Yoga Teacher Training in 2006. Emily started teaching professionally immediately after graduation and she now teaches and owns her own studio True Moon Yoga. She has created multiple unique classes. Emily's approach to yoga remains ever focused on the balance between strength and flexibility, exertion, and release. Her classes focus on Vinyasa Flow, and fusion classes (HIIT with yoga). You can expect to move, sweat, and breathe. She also specializes in handstand training.
