In Italy, we have emerged from lockdown and many activities are slowly resuming. Debra Christie whom I recommmended for online yoga is an alignment-based Vinyasa flow yoga teacher based in Pisa. From this week onwards, she will be offering classes outside (weather-permitting!) Contact her on +39 345 8094038 for more info or to join a class, or visit her facebook page under Debra Christie - Yoga e Massaggio.
For Pilates online, try Caroline Payne from Cornwall. Her classes are excellent with clear instructions (very important on zoom) and again emphasis on alignment. She offers mixed ability and beginners Pilates as well as more advanced sessions. Visit her new website www.equilibriumpilatesonline.co.uk for more details.
As we move forward, we are looking firstly to offer the yoga retreat we had to postpone in March to this Autumn (date to be confirmed), and then planning a great programme of courses and events for next year 2021, some of which will be based in and around Florence as well as maintaining our roots in Lucca.
Founded in 2011, we offer a variety of different courses and workshops mainly located around the beautiful, historic walled city of Lucca where we are based. Last year, we also ran courses and events for the first time in Florence, the capital of the Renaissance in Italy.
Our courses have included a couple of introductory workshops on the Alexander Technique in Italian; 'Finding your Voice', a voice workshop with an ex-RSC actor and trainer; 'Master the Art of Running' workshops with internationally-acclaimed Level 4 Athletics Coach, Alexander Technique teacher and author of 'Master the Art of Running', Malcolm Balk; Yoga Day and Residential Retreats; and 'Corpo, Mente, Voce', a voice workshop for singers and performers in Italian using the Alexander Technique. We also initiated a Kirtan Chanting Group in Lucca a couple of years ago.
Last year, Dr. Fernand Poulin, Founder and Director of the WhiteWinds Institute in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, healing professional, educator and spiritual teacher, brought his Integrative Energetic Medicine to Italy. We had very successful workshops in both Florence and Lucca with a good number of attendees.
Regular weekly activities include Pilates at a dedicated Pilates Studio with Simonetta Merlin, Alexander Technique lessons with experienced teacher, Elisabetta Gori, and therapeutic massages and Rosen Method Bodywork with Donata Joskow, all currently on hold. All take place in central Lucca. We feel very privileged to have Donata Joskow offering Rosen Method Bodywork as this therapy is virtually unknown in Italy. It is wonderful for helping with stress, aches and pains and emotional issues. Contact us as below for appointments and more information.
