The Story of Sage Hills OM Ranch

Omar and Melanie Abderrahman purchased this beautiful property in 2005. The move from the bright lights of Las Vegas to the quiet High Desert and Beauty of Southern Utah’s Cedar Valley, instantly began to change and redirect their lives in many ways.

NW8A7907_webMelanie began to teach Yoga classes and Omar continued to travel with his Production Management career. They soon realized that living here at the OM Ranch was a stewardship to share with all people who were looking for a quiet and beautiful place to retreat, restore and renew. The property came with a guest house and the Abderrahmans decided to make it available for overnight stay. This grew to people wanting yoga classes and healing treatments on site, so they began to create small weekend or weekly “retreats” and healing services.

In 2009, OM broke ground on the plans to build a 4000sqft building that would house a spectacular new studio for classes, workshops, music events and be available for lease for weddings, parties, corporate events and more! In spite of the downturn of the economy, the Abderrahmans were determined and focused to build and create this much needed center. The entire year of 2009 was spent with this enormous building project and in January of 2010, was completed.

Today, the center is fully operational. Yoga classes and workshops are already happening and the Crystal Inn has generously offered a very affordable rate – $65 year round ( this can be a shared cost if double occupancy) to stay 9 miles away for overnight and arranged transportation back and forth.

The property is sacred and special in part due to a Natural Phenomenon of a naturally magnetic Magnetite Fin that has a very deep vein throughout the property and is exposed in various places upwards to 10 feet above ground. This healing Magnetite is naturally grounding and calming. People claim to get the best sleep and rest of their lives while staying at the OM!

We have 22 acres of sage covered rolling hills, that are available for exploring and simply enjoying the solitude and serenity, yet you are a mere 15 minutes from town, Shakespeare Festival, Brianhead ski resort, and centrally located within the Golden Circle of 6 beautiful National Parks – Zion, Bryce, Cedar Breaks, Snow Canyon, Kolob Canyon, Grand Canyon.
