Farmhouse Bellaria is a classical farmhouse in Piemont style, part of it to be drawn back to the half of the nineteenth Century. It is located in a quite hilly area of the countryside between Alessandria and Acqui Terme.

Far from the inhabitant centre and from the main roads, it is surrounded by a quiet and relaxed atmosphere that follows the rhythm of nature. Foxes, deers, squirrels, wild boars and many kinds of birds live in that countryside and very often they get close to the houses and to the small lake, which is located inside the property of the farmhouse.

During the week an organic vegan diet will progress from a mainly raw diet to a purely liquid one with one day of fasting.

The farmhouse has a room for Ayurveda massages, with a wooden massage table in respect of the traditional Indian medicine. In Farmhouse Bellaria, people may opt for the following Ayurveda massages:

Abhyangam

It is the typical Ayurveda massage; it is done by massaging the body with lukewarm medical oil or a mixture of essential oils in vegetable oil, different according to the person and the parts of the body. Besides being relaxing and acting against stress, it has as main aim the psycho-physical reactivation; from a physical point of view it cleans and makes the skin softer, reactivates and melts the muscles, and helps to improve the lymphatic and blood circulation.

It is excellent for people with a Vata Dosha constitution and for all troubles due to an imbalance (insomnia, depression, dryness); from a deeper point of view it helps to discover and to remove fears and anxieties, and to gain a better ability to live and profit from the present and increase self-consciousness; it can be done for therapeutic purposes and specific troubles.

Abhyangam by four hands

  • It is the classical massage of the Indian tradition; n energetic massage with two therapists that move synchronously.

Shirodhara

It consists in pouring a constant lukewarm thread of vegetable oil on the forehead; it gives a deep sense of peace and serenity to the mind and body; very useful for people suffering from headache, insomnia, eye diseases, strong stress, depression, it improves the intellectual ability, the memory, auditory and eye perception.

Udvartanam

The body gets strongly massaged with a mixture of soft and fragrant dust, spices and legumes; it is useful to diminish the excess of Kapha Dosha and to dissolve the fat layer; it improves the skin colour, the blood and lymphatic circulation, and gives stability to body and mind.

Podikizhi

It is done with cotton sacks filled with a warm mix of dusts, spices and legumes, and used to tap or scratch the body, more or less energetically according to the constitution; first of all the body is covered with sesame oil and essential oils, and then the body is tapped with Kizhi; this allows the oil to penetrate more deeply; this kind of massage improves the lymphatic and blood circulation; it is useful against backache, cervical pains and sciatica.

  • Review by Carlee from Nakusp, British Columbia, Canada

    "Recently I attended Hari-Om's 200 hours YTT held at Samasati Nature Retreat in Costa Rica. I'm not sure that any review I provide will do this experience justice. It was incredible, life-changing, challenging and amazing. It was so much more than I had hoped for!I felt that the curriculum was very well rounded, and presented in a very non-biased, non-dogmatic, open minded manner. Learning everything about yoga would take a lifetime, but the 200 hours covered a great deal, and introduced us to the main topics in the world of yoga. I think it's kind of a case of 'the more you know, the less you know'. My horizons were broadened, and it created a hunger for more knowledge. Max and Jun were the perfect team as teachers, both bringing something very special to each class. I went to the training hoping to come out of it as a yoga teacher. I left as a better human being who can teach yoga! The location for this training could not be better. Samasati is a very special place. The staff are wonderful, the food was delicious (especially breakfast!) and the view was breathtaking. I looked into many YTT's before choosing Hari-Om, and feel so very grateful for the choice I made. I look forward to doing my 300 hours YTT with Hari-Om in the future. All I can really say is thank you, my life is forever changed for the better after this experience!"

  • Review by Courtney from Washington, USA

    "I had an amazing time at the Hari-Om yoga teacher training in March 2015. Upon going into the training I knew I was entering a transformative path and that I would have great new views upon exiting the program. Of course, so much more happened within the three week span. In a program like this you learn so much about yourself and about life. It's an opportunity to try new things and get to know yourself better. Then along with it you meet amazing, new, perhaps life-long friends, and new ways to share the beauty of this world with every one around you. I thought that the training was excellent, all the teachers are amazing and have their own experience to bring to the program. It is an intense 200-hour course, in the jungle, so remember that when you sign-up. For me the seclusion was exactly what I wanted and needed, and I don't think I've ever felt so blissed out. I will for sure remember my 200-hour YTT experience with Hari-Om at the Samasati Nature Retreat in Costa Rica for the rest of my life."

  • Review by Mila

    "Hari -Om yoga teacher training has been a success! The teaching skills of teachers during these two years has allowed me to better understand some aspects of my studies and gave good suggestions for personal discover. The philosophy and purpose of this experiential training made me understand what kind of approach I want to give to my teaching. A special thanks to Marco Mandrino that with its peculiarities has been able to be a super teacher urging everyone to the tenacity, determination and courage with a pinch of irony and collective joy. As a researcher and experimenter I can say it was the beginning of a nice trip that will continue because irresistible!"

  • Review by Mauro

    "The choice to start a yoga teacher training with Hari-Om was one of the best I've ever done. The open and non-dogmatic approach, the interconnection with other disciplines and with martial arts is what enriches you more and allows to evolve. It leaves you a lot and continuous inputs so that you can continue to deepen your personal research. The path is transformative and as the training progresses ideas are clearer and you feel more “rich”. The teachers I have met and known transmit this approach and you discover they are true masters as well as friends. The classmates are special people, they accept you without judgment as you express your true nature freely. The mental and physical effort is important, but all the love and dedication are just a small part of what you have back. You will never lose it."

    "The Hari-Om yoga teacher training lived up to my expectations. The teachers are very competent, always available and ready to teach with a smile. Not just a school, but rather a way of life. Namastè."

    "I thoroughly enjoyed Hari Om Yoga School at Samasati. I thought that Max and June were the perfect balance of instructors to teach us yoga teachers in training. Jun's sensitivity and knowledge about anatomy mixed with Max's life experience, intense practice, and spirituality was just what I was looking for in a yoga school."

  • Review by Emanuela

    "The course was a beautiful personal journey. Very nice relationship that has been created with the teachers. After only a few hours, it seems we have known each other for a very long time. Although the practice is pretty tough, it never ends with at least a good laugh. Perhaps to defuse the effort but all the wonderful teachers have been able to bring out the best in each of us. All our materials and theoretical have been taught in a nice and effective way. Obviously, given the short time available, each topic was introduced and we were given all the tools to be able to deepen the study individually. Now the first part has been accomplished, it is to us to continue our studies at home and continue the daily practice, the only way to really bring yoga within us."

    "It is not really the classic dogmatic and serious yoga school. Hari-Om is something very different and strong that deals with professionalism, experience and wisdom the issues of Yoga, without taking itself too seriously! It is exactly what I was looking for as it brought me inside Yoga deeply, emotionally, energetically."

    "A fantastic experience that takes you out of your comfort zone to start an unforgettable experience. The course encompasses yoga to 360 degrees without losing anything, and adding some extras. The teacher training retreat is a totally unique experience, hard but unique."

  • Review by Ted

    "I'm very glad I took this important path with Hari - Om; It is exactly what I expected, maybe even better. Apart the pure technical matters and style, what struck me most was the feeling to be part of a family, the humility, and extraordinary capacity of each teacher to share a small part of one's own path. No dogma, only the desire to grow and enrich each other. Absolutely special."

  • Review by Marjo M, Costa Rica

    "I had the privilege of staying in Samasati on October 19th to 22nd. I was looking for a place to disconnect, re-energize and do yoga. My experience was everything and more! I am pretty demanding when it comes to yoga classes, being a teacher myself and conscious of my personal needs, and Stephanies classes where everything I wanted and more! She can deliver a journey of self-exploration and self-realization with each class she gives, even its not always pretty what a student finds in her personal exploration through yoga. Yoga in its best is transformative, and thank god there is a teacher like Stephanie who dedicates her live to transform peoples lives. She allows her genuine self to be present every time she teaches. Her classes are alwats challenging, whether they are more active, Vinyasa yoga or passive, Yin yoga. When student is open the magic of yoga happens."

  • Review by Katrina Hache

    "I have been practicing mainly at home since the YTT trying to develop and grow more on what I learned while at Samasati. Today was one of the times that I decided to go to a class at my regular studio. The teacher hadn't seen me since I came back. After class she put her hand on my shoulder and said how she noticed that my practice has changed so much since the last time she taught me. That I'm much more forgiving of myself. Its one thing to feel a change within yourself, but when someone on the outside notices something like that, its hard to explain, but it just feels incredible. I just wanted to share this experience because of all of you (at the teacher training) that I was able to let go of a lot that was holding me back from being truly happy with myself. Thank you all for being supportive, understanding, and loving."

    "I was reflecting on the past three weeks about our yoga teacher training and I cannot begin to express how full my heart is right now! I am beyond grateful for this whole experience. Some incredible people there. I love my 12 new sisters. I learned a lot about myself and about the practice of yoga and I only want to continue to study. This is the start of something wonderful!"

  • Review by Carolyn Stevens

    "I had the most extraordinary journey. From the yoga teaching, to the animals in the rainforest and the delicious vegetarian foood. It has forced me to consider the choices I was making prior to my YTT. It is a life changing positive experience that will deepen your own practice and point you in the right direction if someday you would like to teach. All the instructors were fantastic! Very knowledgeable and very approachable. If you have the opportunity I would suggest this to anyone even if you don't want to teach there are some great tools to help your own practice! I loved it! I would not change a thing."

  • Review by Calin N.

    "With all the multiple challenges I faced throughout the training compared to other students (new to vegetarian diet, suddenly no wine allowed for me after work, haha, strict discipline, exhausting practice)I left with the overall feeling of clearly meeting my objective and of a work very well done.I was impressed by the vast experience, in depth knowledge of yoga and teaching skills of the instructors, I liked the special approach to teaching by using an invigorating blend of hard work, attention to detail and recurrent episodes of fun and jokes to make everything feel lighter, more human, to make students love yoga more than they used to do and for me it worked and I think that is the secret and the big science.I left the training feeling a better yogi, and aside from the insights received re the asanas technicalities and many other details and knowledge required of a yoga teacher and which surely will still require continuos study, self work and effort to improve and consolidate, I left feeling more in touch with the inner realms, with myself, perhaps a better person, with a better will, more clearly defined personal priorities and certainly better equipped to live a more yoga type of life, to be able to take care of myself, body, soul, spirit and emotion. And why not, who knows, perhaps one day, in my turn, to also be able to help others start to love or get closer to yoga, get closer to themselves."

  • Review by Angelika Scott

    "For me, the teacher training with Hari-Om exceeded my expectations. Since I taught yoga before Yoga Alliance spread its wings in the yoga world, I was a bit skeptical about 'new age yoga', the 200-hour thing, the 500-hour thing, knowing that studying yoga is a never ending endeavor and one does not become a teacher just like that. I have been trained in a three year apprentice ship, with hundreds of hours, still ongoing seminars every year, where meditation and union with the Divine is the goal. I found your training to be not only enjoyable and beneficial, but loved the fact that there was always the referral to meditation as the real thing, as well as providing a good introduction to yoga philosophy. It was rich, interesting, and stimulating. I feel a renewed enthusiasm for my teaching and the desire to expand and grow, which I had lost."

  • Review by Sally Knopp

    "What a wonderful experience, with wonderful people! The 500-hour program was extremely personally challenging, both physically and mentally but I knew that it was where I was meant to be. In the end, I'm so glad that I was there. You can't help but grow body, mind, and spirit."

  • Review by Marcella

    "Yoga and more! I left my island to go to learn how to be a "good" yoga teacher, and yes, I took home a certificate. I can be a yoga teacher now. For what concerns being a "good" teacher, my path has just started. I can definitely count on myself as much as I know I can count on all of those who taught me in these 21 days what is yoga not only through the practice. So I thank myself as I want to learn more and more, but I want to thank those who with the sweat of the practice made us overcome our fears.Thank you to those who nurtured our souls during the lessons and lectures even during the ones after lunch when digestion puts you in the rest mode. Thank you to those who with love (great ingredient) cooked for us amazing food nurturing our bodies. Thank you to those who took care of our common spaces every day with a smile. Thank you to those who stated this "journey" with me, my companions for sharing me a part of them. I believe I can really say that you made me experience yoga in my life. Thank you from the deepest of my heart."

    "I came with an open heart but hazy intention. I found a teacher and a staff who could respectfully observe my soul and consolidate my intention. So it grew and finally became part of me. Hari Om is a great school that can show you the way without imposing its. I'll see you soon guys to keep walking on this path."

    "A part of my heart is still there, where the time stopped for 21 days. It wasn't only a teacher training course, it was more than that. A big family, new faces, moments of happiness, and sometimes a tear. It will be with me forever and when I close my eyes I will be there again with you all."
