YOGA for Artists
Time & Location
About the Event
The yogi and the artist are very similar: Both notice the world, and through these observations, the yogi and the artist create. While the artist may create an installation or a song or a memoir, the yogi’s creations are not always tangible. Instead, the yogi creates movement in their entire being, and this shift is inspired by the desire for freedom. The artist may also feel these shifts, desire this freedom.
In this workshop, I will help attendees use Classical Yoga to gain balance as artists, prevent burnout, and to form a relationship with their work that is based on curiosity rather than expectation. Asana (poses) will only be part of our workshop, as we will be using other yogic tools like journaling, discussion, and sound meditation.
Refreshments and snacks will be provided. The Downtown Arts Collective does have extra yoga mats and blocks, but I encourage you to bring your own if you have any. Also, don’t forget to bring a writing utensil and paper. I look forward to meeting you.
