As the countryside is usually associated to relaxing moments, meditation, reading or lazing about in the garden, the hills surrounding Casa Isabella are world-famous for the wine and food offered by this territory.
Moreover this is the ideal place for open air activities: you will have the chance to explore the hill country of the area on food or by bicycle, or to swim and relax by our swimming pool. What we offer:
Traditional Piedmont cooking courses
One-day cooking classes. The lesson starts with a tour at the Nizza Monferrato market where the products t be used will be selected. Notions and helpful hints on the local cooking traditions will be explained. The dishes prepared during the day will be served at dinner.
“Yoga teaches you to perceive your limits and from them to move on. B.K.S. Iyengar. The knowledge and acceptance of the body are the starting pints to reach the personal inner calmness and equilibrium, and therefore global harmony. The yoga sessions we suggest focus on a deep listening of the body, that knows what one can or cannot do; it is necessary to slowly harmonize with gratitude and confidence with its changes. Practice is accessible to anyone, with clear and fulfilling results, both physically and psychologically
Yoga Thai Massage
In Thailand it is considered the basis of Traditional Medicine, practiced and taught in hospitals as well as in public and private institutions. Through this practice it is possible to restore the correct vital energy circulation (Prana) therefore conveying harmony and well-being to the body and soul. It is also possible to resolve posture problems, muscle and joint pains, greatly improve body agility and blood circulation. 2 hours are requested for a complete treatment and no oils are used; the masseur practices several compressions, extensions, torsion, stretches and uses positions ascribable to yoga practices.
Detox diet programme
Food is our source of energy. We need to critically measure and select it according to our specific requirements and lifestyle. At the same time food needs to remain a source of joy, variety, culture and creativity. We always offer healthy and well-balanced menus, in line with our traditions.With the detox programme, we suggest a three day detoxifying diet which will not erase the pleasure of taste and sight, and that draws from our traditions, as our ancestors knew how to eat and balance food better the we do now. With all dew precautions, we remind you of Anthony Bourdain’s words: ‘Your body isn’t a temple, it’s a funfais. Enjoy the ride’.
