Immerse yourself in springtime tranquility while honing your Latin among friends!

Justin Slocum Bailey is a veteran language, music, and martial arts instructor crazy about helping teachers and learners succeed with less stress and more joy. He is diving ever deeper into mind-body-&-voice skills that make the work of language teachers more peaceful, effective, and sustainable. Look for his book and audio resources supporting these practices later in 2019!
Skye Shirley, host of Living Room Latin, will be offering yoga and nature walks. Skye is an educator, classicist, poet, and activist who brings Latin to life for students all over the world, regularly teaching and presenting with Polis, Ascanius, UMASS Boston, The Paideia Institute, GrecoLatinoVivo, and the National Center for the Humanities.
"Justin Slocum Bailey is the ultimate educator. He brings to every one of his pursuits extensive knowledge, curiosity about both language and people, a sense of humor, and an extraordinary ability to connect. As I strive to improve my own teaching, I try to channel what I have seen in him. He is thorough, clear, exciting, talented, interesting, and fun."
