At My Place: Home Schooling at Coyote Creek Campus
Home Schooling -
Studying with Bruce at
Bruce and Yoshiko’s home
No, we don’t hold classes in this little house down the road. Our almost century old casita is a bit larger. It has two good size bedrooms, room enough to receive, comfortably, four guest/students at any given time.
We welcome you into our home, house you, feed you, and together, within a small group of 6, we study.
What do we study? We study Alexander’s work, Marj Barstow’s work, and what has become, after 50 years of training, my work.
We study the Alexander Technique, The Peaceful Body, The Walking Way, Tai Chi and Aikido principles and learn to practically apply them to day to day life. We also learn about fine motor skills, based upon principles found within Japanese Tea Ceremony. When performing artists, craft artists, or athletes visit us, we work with them within their particular disciplines.
Basically we study what we as humans do, what we as humans are famous for as a species – walking, talking, and using our hands. How do we bring greater comfort, ease, efficiency, power, and pleasure into what we do, into our actions and interactions? How do we age gracefully, no matter how young or old we are?
Within a peaceful setting we find practical solutions to these questions. We enjoyably live those solutions together for a few days, days that are full of camaraderie, natural beauty, and good food.
Here’s our spring, summer, fall schedule for 2013.
May 17-20 Weekend – FULL
July 2-7 Week – FULL
August 30-September 2 Weekend – one opening
September 27-30 Weekend (Vacation/Study Weekend) – three openings
We may conduct an autumn retreat in mid-October.
With the cottonwoods and aspens, turned gold, it is too beautiful to be missed, not to be shared.
Our classes being so small, and our only offering one week and three weekends, these events are already filling up.
Write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to reserve a place for yourself and get in some good old fashion home schooling and home cooking.
Hope to see you next year in Coyote.

Must have a car to get to Bruce’s place in Coyote.
(Or a helicopter. :>)
Red Rock Country
This weekend is open to everyone at any stage in their study, from just beginning to having been a teacher for decades.
The only requisite is that you are able to get to and from Bruce’s place on your own.
View from inside our teaching room.
That’s Ghost Ranch in the distance, and behind Ghost Ranch the Sangre de Christo Mountains.
