Welcome to

Slow Yoga Italy

Slow Yoga founder Bernard Deane-Armstrong has re-located to Italy where he first went in 2013 on a yoga retreat to Assisi

It was there that he fell in love, literally, with the “vita bella”.

During a trip searching for possible site to host yoga retreats, Bernard discovered the medieval town of Montone halfway up a hill surrounded by the joys of Nature. With plenty of light, fresh air, farmland and lakes; Bernard soon realised this was ‘his place’ on this earth and without planning too much decided to: “jump and a net would appear” as he was advised by a student in Rome where he spent 5 years teaching English and working for a tour agency at the Colosseum and Vatican Museum.

Bernard is now settled and has started teaching yoga here in Montone, nearby Umbertide and Trestina. “Slowly slowly” as the Italians like to say, Bernard has planted his roots, fed his foundation, and started to branch out and establish himself here in Umbria.

Please see below the schedule of classes he teaches.  Each class costs 10 Euro or 80 Euro for a course of 10 classes.


Every Tuesday at Hotel Fortebraccio, via dei Magistrati 11, Montone 06014 (PG)
