Restful, creative and invigorating: a writer’s view on a Watermill yoga retreat

We’ve just had a lovely note from a previous guest May Delory“Several years’ ago I travelled from Canada for a week’s stay at Watermill on a writer’s retreat. My stay could not have been any more restful, creative, and invigorating!

“The food served at the Watermill was high quality produce, prepared with thought and talent. A great and welcoming group of people in staff and in the writers group.

 “At the age of seventy, I have just recently returned to yoga. I first began when I was twenty and could do a head stand and just about every position. This yoga retreat at Watermill doubtless will be invaluable to any who is fortunate to attend. Om.”

 Thank you May for your kind words and support. Why not take May’s advice and join us? Amy Rogg and her colleague Joanne Brohmer, two yoga teachers from Californiaare running a wonderful yoga retreat at the Watermill this Summer.

Close your eyes and dream of beautiful Tuscany, amazing food, good company and restorative yoga. With their students using words like ‘joy’ and ‘magical’ about them, Amy and Joanne will help you to awaken and restore your true passion and self-worth. We are sure this is going to be one of our most inspiring retreats –a sun-filled, fun-filled week where we’ll nurture your mind, body and spirit.

Amy and Joanne’s week will run from Saturday 25 August to Saturday 1 September 2018. The theme of the retreat will be ‘Connection’ – to yourself, to others and to nature.

She is based in San Francisco, California, USA. Amy helps people to awaken and restore their passion and self-worth, inspiring them to move towards their vulnerability and authenticity. She brings people back into their innate knowledge and wisdom, through a deeper connection to their body, breath, and personal expression.

As a healer, Joanne Brohmer offers a range of modalities that helps others enter into their own depth and set their anchor deeper, where they can begin to claim and feel what has been hard to reach.

Participants on our yoga retreat with Amy and Joanne enjoy SEVEN nights at the Watermill, with full board.

It is of the village of Manarola in the Cinque Terre, one of the venues you can choose one our Wednesday excursion during our creative courses here.

Sandra says: The Watermill is one of my favourite place to paint and the hospitality is out of this world. “I’ve made so many great friends there over the years and I am looking forward to meeting many of them again as well as making new friends during our painting weeks.

Sandra teaching in the Watermill walled garden

We had a wonderful course with Sandra last year and our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. A couple of their comments: “Sandra was full of enthusiasm and talent and made every day a joy.  To have two chances most days to paint was utter heaven and in such wonderful surroundings. I didn’t paint a masterpiece but thoroughly enjoyed my week.  I hope to remember some of the tricks Sandy taught us and use them in the future.”

 “Many thanks to you both for a fabulous week. Your forethought, hard work and professionalism are very much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and nothing was at fault. You have created a gem. Please pass on our sincere gratitude to all your lovely people.”

Sandra under the roses

Sandra Strohschein, from Michigan, USA, has achieved an extraordinary mastery of her medium, transparent watercolours. She works in a fast loose impressionistic style, but above all, she produces passionate, emotionally charged paintings, full of energy.

As for her teaching, people frequently tell her about how much fun they have on her workshops and how nobody ever wants them to end. Another painting guest on her course at the mill said: Watching your demonstrations was such an education and your kind and patient individual help was invaluable.”

Atmospheric Watermill pictures from Carol

Our charming guest Carol Gaston, here on Paul Talbot-Greaves’ painting course, captured some remarkable images with her camera during her visit, as well as producing some great paintings.

Above is a photo of the bignonia sprouting at the entrance to the walled garden, with the promise of vivid orange flowers later in the year. And here’s close up shot of the turbulent water of the millstream cascades emerging from the 17th Century watermill.

And here’s an unusual shot of the hairpin road from Posara to the nearby walled town of Fivizzano near the Watermill:

Thank you for sharing these with us, Carol

It reminded me to remind you aboutth e Watermill photographic competition. It’s your chance to capture the unique ambiance and fun-filled atmosphere of The Watermill during our inspiring creative courses —and win a free creative holiday. You can find out all about it by clicking http://www.watermill.uk.net/blog/?p=13480. We’d love to see your pictures.

Oh by the way, here’s the bignonia in bloom last Summer:

Admiring the Bignonia in the courtyard

Oh! and Carol added: I have never received such great treatment on a holiday. You all couldn’t have been kinder. Everything was 5 star, from the food to the bedrooms, to all of your staff. It couldn’t have been any better. Your organisation of the week was amazing, down to the very last detail.”

Thank you again, Carol. 

 

Warmest regards

A chance to see Michael’s remarkable sculptures

Michael Glasspool and his wife Anna were delightful guests of ours on a painting course here last year. After a career in medicine, Michael now devotes much of his time to sculpture and we’re delighted to be able to tell you about – and extend Michael’s invitation to – his Open Studio exhibition in Kent, which runs from 9-24 June.

It’s a show shared with seven other artists, at Dibgate Farm. Chevening Road in Sundridge in Kent, in the South of England. Michael says: “We have painters, printers, sculptors, embroidery, glass work and jewellery all showing in a converted barn complex.”

Michael is a self-taught sculptor and painter and as such is not bound by the constraints of a formal art education. Ideas for his work come from his worldwide travels, his interest in nature and from the art of ancient civilisations. That’s Michael’s Elephant above and this is Paros:

The Watermill at Posara for painting, knitting, creative writing, Italian language and yoga holidays/vacations/retreats, Tuscany, Italy.

Michael models in wax, clay or plaster producing a detailed representation of the subject. On the basis that “less is more” the model is then pared back until only the essence remains. Some distortion away from reality may occur in order to achieve the right balance between line and form.

Below is an abstract sculpture, called Opposition. You can see more of his Michael’s work on his website at  www.michaelglasspool.co.uk. and enjoy it ‘in the flesh’ at his Open Studio in June.

How to keep bad backs at bay, by Amy

Bad backs are the bane of Western living, caused often by our sedentary lifestyles Our lovely yoga guru Amy Rogg, who is mentoring a course in Bali at the moment, has just sent me this well-focussed yoga tip on ways to loosen your spine

She says: “Spinal opening and flexibility are essential to feeling good and pain free. The most important nerve connections are in the spine so here are some ways to prevent stagnation and compression and maintain fluidity and malleability.”

Here are the exercises:

1) Cat/cow (see top): find a table top position on your hands and knees. As you inhale, drop your belly and ribs towards the floor, looking up and flaring your tailbone. As you exhale round the spine and push into the palms to press out of your shoulders. Repeat this spinal undulation for 1-2 minutes, aligning breath and movement.

2) Anahata kriya (left): scross-legged and hold your knees with your hands.

Start moving the torso in a circular motion, taking the heart around in a circle in one direction.  Do this for one minute. Then switch directions for another minute.

3) Downward/plank (above): start in downward dog. Lift into the toes and round the spine like a wave towards plank pose. From plank, bend your knees and scoop your hips back to downward dog. Repeat these wave undulations 6-8 times.

Bring your humble pen on a Watermill writing course

The Watermill at Posara for painting, knitting, creative writing, Italian language and yoga holidays/vacations/retreats, Tuscany, Italy.Two inspiring quotes for aspiring writers this morning. The first, from singer-songwriter Paul Simon (above), who says: “You want to be a writer, don’t know how or when? Find a quiet place, use a humble pen.” 

And I really like this idea from Arthur Freed, lyricist and film producer:Don’t try to be different. Just be good. To be good is different enough.” 

If you’d like to be a good writer, particularly of the stories from you own life, why not bring your humble pen to the safe haven of The Watermill this Summer, for Jo Parfitt’s wonderful Writing your Life’s Stories week. We’d love to welcome you here. (And you can write on your laptop, too if you want!)

One of the best way to begin writing is with stories from your life, whether it’s for a short blog or  full-blooded memoir. Or just a record for your grandchildren to enjoy and to understand what you did and how it was when you were younger. You’ll need motivation and courage, but the rewards will be great. As one student on Jo’s last course here said: “I can honestly say it’s been life changing for me and the setting could not have been more perfect.”

Jo’s first week with us, from 22-29 September, is now completely full, but we still have a few places on her second Write Your Life Stories course, from Saturday 18 August to Saturday 25 August 2018.

Jo’s creative writing courses are designed to help you produce your best work, to find your true writer’s ‘voice’ and to write authentically. Among other things, you’ll discover the secret of SPICE, the seven steps to writing life stories, and put this into practice right away.

The Watermill at Posara for painting, knitting, creative writing, Italian language, personal development and yoga holidays/vacations/retreats, Tuscany, Italy.Jo Parfitt has published 32 books herself, has helped more than 100 authors get into print and more than 1,000 people to begin writing. She’s an inspiring, compassionate and encouraging teacher: her motto is ‘sharing what I know to help others to grow’. Jo says: “The course at the watermill will provide a safe haven in which to unlock your creativity, write from your heart and hone your writing craft. It will also help to remove blocks to your writing. Sessions at the mill will empower students to write in a compelling way that makes real experiences come to life.”

Bring your experiences of life to life!

Bring YOUR experiences of life to life!

Jo adds: “The class will include several methods and genre and is perfect for anyone wanting to write about their own lives for an effective journal, memoir or blog. If you would enjoy an injection of inspiration in a safe and supportive environment this course is for you. It is appropriate for students of any level.”

Yoga tips from Joanne to reset your digestion — and enhance your mood

The Watermill at Posara for painting, knitting, creative writing, Italian language and yoga holidays/vacations/retreats, Tuscany, Italy.Our bubbly yoga mentor Joanne Brohmer sends us these Maytime tips. She says: “I don’t know about you, but here in California as the weather starts warming up and we move from the deep internal waters of the cold to a new spring, new energy, my body’s needs totally change. I am ready to shake off any old energies and clean my palette on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.”

The Watermill at Posara for painting, knitting, creative writing, Italian language and yoga holidays/vacations/retreats, Tuscany, Italy.Joanne says: “My digestion, in particular, needs a good reset and is a direct link to my mood. Lightening up my diet certainly helps but since our gut has really been proven to be so connected to our emotional state, I like to nurture it with my yoga practice too. There are lots of poses that will help wring out all the old stagnant energy from our digestion and help cleanse and massage out our major digestive organs. Whether you are looking to cleanse or tonify your digestion, these poses will certainly create an organic flow.”

Joanne recommends starting your practice with the simple ‘cat and cow, pictured at the top: “This lengthens and compresses the intestines and helps bring fresh blood to the epithelial cells which aid in healthy digestion.”

Then move on to sitting twists, which help wring out anything in the internal organs that doesn’t need to be there and stimulate your digestion:

Finally: Wind-relieving posture is great if you have sluggish digestion or trapped gas. You can use your leg and knee as you pull in to compress on your lower organs, as you release new blood will rush to these areas and help cleanse.”

Joanne is running a fantastic yoga retreat at the Watermill this Summer with her colleague Amy Rogg. We are delighted to welcome Joanne and Amy, two amazing young American yoga teachers. With their students using words like ‘joy’ and ‘magical’ about them, Amy and Joanne will help you to awaken and restore your true passion and self-worth.

Welcome to the new Vasari

We continue our musings about our bedrooms and apartment suites named after famous Renaissance artists with a few thoughts about Giorgio Vasari.

I often think that if Vasari hadn’t written his well-known book, he’d be more famous!

This apparent contradiction comes about from the fact that in some quarters at least, Vasari is only known for his book Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects, the first book on art history, in which he lauded Michelangelo as the apotheosis of artistic development.

But Vasari, who lived from 1511 to 1574, was also a great Renaissance Man in his own right: painter, architect and street-planner, as well as writer and historian.

He painted (with others) the inside of the dome of Florence cathedral, wonderful frescoes in the palazzo vecchio; he built the uffizi and in particular the loggia of the uffizi, creating a unique Renaissance street with unified architecture, the first regularised streetscape in Europe. Oh, and the Vasari corridor, linking above street level the palazzo vecchio with the Pitti place, so his Grand Duke, Cosimo 1 de’ Medici, wouldn’t have to mix with the hoi polloi on his way home. And he built the Fish Loggia, one of my (many) favourite buildings in Florence.

Originally there was a double row of eight arches (increased to nine by Cosimo III in 1699) on alternating pairs of square and round columns enclosing canopied vaults. And around the outside, there are wonderfully colourful tondi celebrating fish and fishing.

At the Watermill, we’ve just finished renovating the Apartment Suit celebrating Vasari. That’s a shot of the bedroom at the top of this article – and here are the new French widows bringing even more Tuscan light into the sitting room. The Vasari site is ideal for a couple or two people sharing.

Vasari is pretty full on this year’s creative courses, but we have availability for Andrew Geeson’s painting course from Saturday 23 June to Saturday 30 June 2018, for Terry Jarvis’ painting course from Saturday 7 July to Saturday 14 July 2018, for Jo Parfitt’s first Writing your Life Stories week, from Saturday 18 August to Saturday 25 August 2018 and for our yoga retreat with Amy Rogg and Joanne Brohmer, from Saturday 18 August to Saturday 25 August 2018.
