The daily Light program is identical to the Full, although it includes only one session of technical or athletic work out (Functional Training, Muay Thai, and MMA) for a total of three hours training. A maximum of four students will be accepted for each personal training, so that the training will be highly personalized.
It is a discipline and functional art in ground fighting and grappling. In your case, it is used as a component of the MMA and without kimono.
The CrossFit workout is nothing more than a subset, or a methodology of the functional training. This training methodology is currently popular among functional fitness programs used in gyms.
It is a type of functional training created not to increase the muscles size, but to be able to use the body to the maximum of its possibilities with particular attention to the quality of power, speed, and resistance. Functional training is based on the idea of a direct connection between body and mind. It is the mind that needs to be trained to react quickly and not the muscle or muscle chain. This methodology was born in the training of The United States Army Special Forces.
Very similar disciplines that integrate boxing with the use of kicks and in the case of Muay Thai also using knees and elbows. Hari Om Yoga School's main references are for striking techniques within the MMA.
The MMA is considered one of the specific combat sports that has been born from the intersection of all combat sports and martial arts. At the beginning, there were martial artists who came from specific traditions who faced each other. Now, whoever practices the MMA is following a training method that takes the best from the different specialties, simplifying them, so that they are then functional to a more probable or possible fight with very few rules.
In this training, MMA main aspects are Muay Thai, Kickboxing, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. You will practice to improve yourself and be mentally and physically prepared for a fierce fight that might never happen.

This training will take place at Cascina Bellaria Farmhouse in Sezzadio, Alessandria, Italy. The farmhouse is a classical Piemont style, newly renovated with the original structure and style dating back to the middle times of the 19th century. It is located in a quite hilly area of the countryside between Alessandria and Acqui Terme. Far from the inhabitant center and from the main roads, it is surrounded by a quiet and relaxed atmosphere that follows the rhythm of nature.
It is also an eco-conscious farm producing organic vegetables, fruit, honey, jams, and preserves. It is a farm with vegetarian cuisine that promotes respect for nature and the earth. Foxes, deer, squirrels, wild boars, and many kinds of birds live in the countryside and very often get close to the houses and to the small lake, which is located inside the property of the farmhouse.
During this training, daily delicious vegetarian and vegan meals are included.
During your free time, you can take walks in the countryside and by the lake. You can also enjoy floating touch massage at an additional cost (50 EUR each session). Floating Touch is a holistic treatment that combines the fluidity of the Ayurvedic massage with the vibration of sound massage through the use of Tibetan bowls, gong, ocean drums, and Cimbali koshi. The combination of the two practices allows you to reach a deep calm in mind and body.
