The Art of Yoga: Color

Drawing and Doodles.

The Art of Yoga: Color
Saturday, January 13
9am – 12 noon
Instructors: Claudia Cummins and Irene Maginniss

$35 Members | $60 Non Members
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.

In this session, we’ll explore color in all its guises, first through a guided yoga class and then in the art studio working with fused glass. Explore the many hues of life as you create a sun catcher, a bowl or an abstract design inspired by your favorite colors. No previous yoga or art experience required!
