The Art of Yoga

May 16, 2017
I am thrilled to offer a series of workshops this summer in collaboration with the Mansfield Art Center called The Art of Yoga.

The disciplines of art and yoga share much in common: clear-eyed vision, an exploration of the creative impulse, and a deep sensitivity to all of life. In The Art of Yoga, we'll explore these themes both on our yoga mats and in the art studio, considering how movement, breath and meditation can fuel and enliven the creative impulse that lies within each of us. 

Our first workshop, on June 17, will explore images of light and color, first through a guided yoga class and then through time in the art studio working with fused glass. Talented local artist Irene Maginniss will lead the art session. Participants will be invited to make a sun catcher, a coaster, or another form of light-fueled art, inspired and enriched by visions that emerge from within. 

Our second workshop, on August 5, will explore possibilities of shape, form and embodiment, first through a guided yoga class and then in the pottery studio. Instructor Brittany Jackson will guide our time in the art studio. Make a vessel to hold anything you love, or a totem that inspires you, or any other beautiful shape out of clay. 

You can learn more about these workshops and my other summer offerings here and you can register online at the Mansfield Art Center's websiteNo previous yoga or art experience is required, so I hope you will consider joining us even if you feel yoga-challenged, art-deficient, or both!
