Founded in 2011, we offer a variety of different courses and workshops which have been mainly located around the beautiful, historic walled city of Lucca where we have been based. In 2019, we also ran courses and events for the first time in Florence, the capital of the Renaissance in Italy which we will continue to do.
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 few years ago.
In 2019, 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.
In October 2022, we were thrilled to welcome Timothy Spratt, Tai Chi, Chi Kung and meditation teacher from London, who led a wonderful 3-day residential retreat in the hills near Lucca entitled 'The Wonderful Way of Chi Kung'.
Following on from the success of this course, we are offering a 5-day, 4-night residential retreat in Tai Chi with Tim 6-10 April 2024. We are also going to offer a yoga retreat day in the Spring 2024.
Regular weekly activities include Pilates at a dedicated Pilates Studio in Lucca with Simonetta Merlin who is an excellent teacher. Groups are small to allow for personal attention. We also offer therapeutic massages and Rosen Method Bodywork with Donata Joskow. 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.
