Yoga is the process of "union, - of the individual soul with its immortal counterpart". The art process is one of the many paths that can lead us to a greater sense of "Self" and "Unity of Being". Join us for a week of rejuvenation as you dive into the ocean of relaxation, contemplation, physical attunement and creative expression. Experiencing the the healing arts of Meditation, yoga asanas (physical "still" positions) and a variety of painting and drawing processes designed to enhance stillness and awareness along with others that will release energy and passion.
Every morning before breakfast we will greet the sun as Faye or Renee leads us as we begin our practice, diving into dynamic and rejuvenating vinyasa flow. Each class will focus on different elements of yoga asana, i.e. backbends, twists, balances, etc., and end with savasana (deep relaxation) and meditation. We will emerge from these practices, clear, vibrant and open.
After a healthy, delicious breakfast we gather again in the studio as artist Robert Masla guide us in the experimentation of different drawing and painting media, using a variety of painting and drawing processes designed to access our creativity, enhance stillness and awareness along with others that will release energy and passion. We will engage in playfulness and have fun making art. In this playful, nurturing and supportive environment where exploration is encouraged and where there are no mistakes, we will experience a variety of different approaches and exercises designed to help us gain access to our calm center of meditative; awareness as well as releasing the passion of creative expression.
