Instructors: Claudia Cummins and Emily Fitch
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 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. In this session, we’ll explore possibilities of flowing movements, first through a guided yoga class and then in the art studio. We’ll work with liquid paints to create abstract paintings that flow, spiral and dance across the canvas. No previous yoga or painting experience required!
