The warmth and glow of summertime is an invitation for you to open up and connect to nature—your true nature! This workshop will integrate your exploration of various yoga postures with mindful self-reflection through simple and easy art activities. It is not necessary for you to have expertise in yoga or art. This practice is open and highly accessible to people from all levels of yoga practice and artistic ability, including those who are beginners or non-artistic. In order to be inclusive, all yoga postures will be offered with options and variations.
Through pairing mindful movement and meditative art-based awareness you will have opportunities to mindfully welcome, observe, and reflect upon your experiences. Weaving together art with yoga practice can cultivate with greater openness, acceptance, curiosity, and self-compassion. This exploration of creative self-expression may also allow deeper insight and tap into your sense of joy, fun and expansiveness, rather than constriction.
A yoga mat will be your main “canvas.” Therefore, you are welcome to bring your own mat. However, we do have mats available in the Peace Pod for your use. All art materials will be included in the workshop fee.
