Learn Italian, practice Kundalini Yoga and get to know Assisi and its surroundings in-depth.

The Italian course for beginners sets its emphasis on conversation and fluency, without neglecting accuracy and the study of basic grammar. This means that you will be invited to communicative tasks, which involve listening and reading comprehension, together with controlled oral and written activities (free oral and written production, difficult at a beginner’s level, could then happen during your time out-of-class, talking to your teachers, your classmates or local people). Grammatical structures are presented in order of frequency and relative complexity and the teaching material is always introduced in some form of authentic text.
Our aim is to allow you to understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography); communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters; describe in simple terms aspects of your background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.

The practice of Kundalini Yoga can give you an experience of the depth of your soul and true identity, beyond the limits of time and space. This direct experience of your higher self builds a platform of strength, radiance, and security on which to build your life. Kundalini Yoga also provides more well-known benefits: increased flexibility, expanded lung capacity, a strong core, and stress alleviation.

The in-depth tourism of Assisi and its surroundings will give you the possibility to really get to know the city of St. Francis, its Basilicas and artistic jewels, the history of the Franciscan order and the landscapes and nature of the region.
