Why Choose Hari Om?
Hari-Om is a yoga school. For those who wish to become yoga teachers and for those who want to deepen their knowledge of yoga. For whoever would like to learn, practice, understand themselves and beyond. We like to call it a laboratory aimed at developing human potential.
Hari-Om is the only Italian yoga school with an international orientation. Each year we certificate almost 100 students coming from all over the world as well as another 100 students from Italy. Hari-Om is not a magic pill, however we try to fill our students with enthusiasm, we love to celebrate life in all its hues instead of retiring from it.
Through our diverse activities such as Yoga, MMA, Functional Training, Ecstatic dance, visual arts and music, we try to unearth a feeling of wholeness and belonging in order to break boundaries and differences.
We strongly believe in taking an active role in society as well as committing to protect the environment and all-round ethics: therefore, our aim is not to favour one way to practice instead of another, rather to favour one way of living instead of another.
THE YOGA STYLES WE OFFER
The teacher training we host is taught by teachers with diverse backgrounds and unique characteristics and styles.
Our Yoga is physically intense and challenging. Although we give a lot of emphasis to dynamic Vinyasa classes, we like to offer many different inputs and we try to explain in detail the features and limits of each one so that students can learn them all and consciously decide which one to use according to the need of the moment. Hence as well as Vinyasa we teach postural yoga (Iyenger) and less dynamic classes, we include Yin Yoga, Ashtanga and much more.
Our courses and activities
In our trainings, we try to examine in depth each individual discipline so as to provide a solid foundation to the practice, to promote an honest approach to self-awareness and to develop one’s own potential as well as to provide students with the tools required to become inspired Yoga teachers. Yoga Alliance acknowledges all our courses.
A team, rather than only one teacher, teaches in our Yoga Teacher Trainings, because we thrive to offer students different hints, and approaches to both practice and teaching.
We have a non-dogmatic approach and teach a yoga that has no style nor tradition’s boundaries. Our aim is to help you find your own unique way rather than copying somebody else’s vision.
We include Mixed Martial Arts and elements from other yogic traditions because we believe that, in order to fully develop human capabilities, it’s crucial to know more than just one perspective.
Silent Warrior Training is our school’s mission. It’s where we research and constantly evolve. The aim is to join and integrate different disciplines so as to fully develop one’s qualities and potential.
We make avail of several Meditation techniques and Yoga combined to Mixed Martial Arts + Functional Training, Crossfit and more.
Our SWT retreats are designed to improve strength and power as well as physical and mental resilience so that students can rediscover the beauty of self-discipline, of self-esteem and of honouring themselves and others.
Rural Tribe is another important project by Hari-Om devoted to the rediscovery of the form and the primordial movement. We believe in fluidity and expressive freedom and, during the Rural Tribe Camp, we use a mix of disciplines ranging from Animal Flow, Capoeira, Ecstatic Dance and the use of musical instruments, to explore new creative and emotional paths that can be applied in everyday life.
Marco Mandrino is the founder and coordinator of Hari Om school. The Hari-om school curriculum reflects Marco’s vision of Practice that integrates different techniques from various disciplines and arts in order to live simply, in harmony with the present moment and to the best of one’s potential.
