Art & Yoga Fusion: Let Your Creative Expression Flow
Time & Location
About the Event
We live in a world that functions off of the basis of logic and common sense, and thus this is how we are forced to think throughout our day to day lives. Yet, creativity is the opposite of logic, and so it cannot be fueled by common sense. Creativity is fueled by what inspires the heart, and art is a personal expression of this inspiration. So when we take part in yogic and meditative practices it breaks down the barriers of logic, it slows our minds down from this fast paced world, and removes unnecessary thoughts. This opens up space in the mind to connect to the heart and understand what one would like to express. Join Alyx Sellars, artist and yoga teacher, for this workshop where she combines her two passions and learn about the positive relationship artistic practices and yogic techniques have with one another, how yoga, breathing, and meditation can remove artist block and invoke creativity, and how art making in and of itself can become a form of meditation and selfless service. Take part in breathing and meditation techniques, artistic and creative practices, some yoga poses to move the body (as well as poses offered specifically for artists who sit for long periods of time to offer pain relief), relaxation, and space and time for creative community art making. Herbal tea, fruit, and raw desserts will be offered, as well as art supplies and materials. Although bringing some of your own materials as well as any projects you are currently working on is strongly encouraged. Of course, if you are in the mood to start a new project, or even just looking to get the creative juices flowing for the first time, you are strongly encouraged to join us well. This workshop is open to all levels of experience in art and yoga. Everyone is encouraged to join us weather you are a yoga teacher or have never practiced before, or if you have created art your entire life, or would like to give it a try for the first time.
