For those who practice or teach yoga, Muay Thai, or meditation, this is a unique opportunity to comprehend and explore how these disciplines can be integrated, complementing each other on all levels: physical, mental, and spiritual.

During the years he dedicated a lot of time studying different arts including the Muay Thai (Thailand's boxing). At the age of 17, he took his first of many travels in Thailand to study the discipline and take part in seminars and stages.
In 2011, Fabio started to exercise the MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), even at a competitive level, where he could show all his experience in this sport. This year he founded a school of MMA and Muay Thai, called "Lotus Gym" in Acqui Terme, Italy. At present, he is a pro-fighter in MMA and he teaches in his school.

"An experience that teaches us that there are no poles but only endless possibilities. A young and dynamic school that makes the student independent and prepares them to find their own path. In short, an experience, at the end of which, you only think: thank you to all."

"I enjoyed Hari-Oms yoga teacher training. I liked how it taught many different philosophies, basics of different styles, the differences and similarities between them."

"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 details, and recurrent episodes of fun jokes to make everything feel lighter, more human, and all to make students love yoga more than they used to. 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, the asanas technicalities, and many other details and knowledge required of a yoga teacher, with which surely I will still require continuous 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."

"I have been trained in a three year apprenticeship, with hundreds of hours, still ongoing seminars every year, where meditation and union with the Divine is the goal. I found the training to be not only enjoyable and beneficial.I loved the fact that there was always the referral to meditation as the real thing, as well as provision of a good introduction to yoga philosophy. It was rich, interesting and stimulating. I feel renewed enthusiasm for my teaching and the desire to expand and grow, which I had lost."
