Light and Shadow: An Art, Yoga and Meditation Workshop
October 28, 10 am - 2 pm
Hendrickx Farm, Davis, CA
$80, includes materials
Our art and yoga trial balloon last month was a great success; we spent a wonderful day with 9 women, creating collage papers, finding flow in yoga and creating brightly patterned collages. There's a synergy that takes place when you combine art and yoga. Our preconceived notions about our ability to make art to dissolve as we absorb ourselves in breathwork, yoga postures and meditation. We're so excited that we've planned 2 more workshops this year. Each workshop will have a different theme and completely different art, yoga and meditation practices. Our workshop in October will take place just before Halloween where we'll explore that point where light and shadow meet.
This workshop will be limited to 8 lovely souls so let me know as soon as possible if you'd like to join us? Just email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Harvesting our Gifts: An Art & Yoga Workshop
Sunday, August 12, 10 am - 2 pm
Hendrickx Farm, Davis, CA
I've long wanted to teach a workshop that combines my love of art, art therapy and yoga. I finally have all the components: a place to make art and practice yoga and a yoga teacher. My friend, Pam Peterson, has offered her home as a location. Pam owns Hendrickx Farms, a beautiful 8.5 acre farm with gardens and a light and spacious interior.
I'm teaming up with Khara Strum, a gifted yoga teacher and healer. We are offering a delicious mix of heart opening yoga, a short guided meditation and lots of time to spread out and dive deep into art. This month we'll focus on our theme "harvest" and working in collage and mixed media.
"Harvest" is our trial balloon and we're offering the class for $25 to cover the cost of materials. The workshop size is limited to 6 lovely souls, so let me know as soon as possible if you'd like to join us! Just click the blue button below to register.
