"Inner Pattern, inner Stillness, inner Light: shadows fly. " (Timothy Spratt, Chi Kung, Tai Chi and Meditation Teacher, London)
I'm very excited to announce our brand new 3-day residential Chi Kung Retreat, the Wonderful Way of Chi Kung, which will take place between 12-15 October 2022 at Villa Boccella in the hills near Lucca in Northern Tuscany.
We are honoured to have as our tutor, Timothy Spratt who is an inspirational Tai Chi, Chi Kung and Meditation teacher based in London. Tim has led many retreats and workshops both in the UK and also in Italy in recent years. For more information on our special retreat, please click on Courses then click on Upcoming Courses and Events then scroll down to More Information.
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. From 2022, our base will move to Florence but we will be maintaining our roots in Lucca in N Tuscany too.
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.
Regular weekly activities include Pilates at a dedicated Pilates Studio in Lucca with Simonetta Merlin who is an inspirational teacher. Groups are small to allow for social distancing and 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.
