We are close to Florence
historic center, the city known worldwide for
her art and beauty.
The house is in the green, with large trees, a vegetable garden and olive trees. The river Arno
with his energy toward us.
We are surrounded by natural elements
, and they are saved thanks to prohibition
of hunting, so we can hear the chirp of birds, pheasants, there are many wild and free animals around us because none disturbs.
As soon as you enter you see the pit from which one draws water and life.
In the house live me (Silvia)
, a girl from Sri Lanka, who helps us to maintain
harmony in the place where we live and practice. Together with us there are also two dogs
and two cats
they chose us in recent years. One dog is from Mountain Everest
and the other from India
, while one cat
is from Crete
and the other one is from the dustbin, it was abandoned.
Here we live, make plan, play, and work with pleasure.
The people who are practicing with us already knew us and others reached us because of students talking
about the work they do here with us.
It is not a gym
, not even a centre but it is our home where we "grow"
not only the land but also our
bodies and minds
This requires commitment and endurance and, above all, the desire to do things with
the pleasure to see the changes and not only the mistakes. This is the reason why not everyone can
but only selected people who understand the meaning of what we offer and who wish to
get involved and give a consistency of training
For this reason we prefer intensive and residential
here where you will have the opportunity to live and practice more hours, concentrated and
engaged in several workouts working on more parameters through the disciplines that we know, yoga,
Taiji, karate, kendo, qi gong and the sacred dances.
The food is vegetarian
, we do not drink alcohol
and smoking is not allowed
, so for those who do not
feel easy to stay away from cigarette or from the usual habits for a few hours or even few days
is better if they prepare themselves to do so in a future work and for the moment approch what
is closer to the feeling of their moment of life, without forcing anything.
