It is the time of year when we begin to contemplate the need for change as we welcome the New Year. The holiday season may have you so preoccupied with “busyness” that you have not considered what you may need to change for yourself.  This workshop will help you gain awareness of the stages of change and how to be more mindful and reflective as you work to stay true to your intentions.

The combination of yoga practices and art can be helpful in connecting with your creative self and allowing space for you to be more open minded and curious in your journey.  If you are considering signing up for this workshop you are already in the state of  contemplation.  This workshop will guide you in the following:

·       Journal prompt around contemplation to consider before workshop 

·       Building an intention through visualization and breath work which will lead you to create a piece of art using watercolors that represents a sense of yourself that came up during the visualization.

·       An asana (movement friendly to all) practice to get you into the action stage and help with the embodiment of being courageous as you continue your journey of change. 

·       Creation of a piece of art using watercolors with the prompt to embody the idea of excellence with the acknowledgment that sometimes doing your best is the key to maintaining change.

·       Exploring the struggles that you face with change through a visualization and then creating a piece of art using watercolors to help with addressing these struggles.  This part will help you to get back on track during relapse and stay true to your intention. 

The workshop is beginner friendly and no prior experience with yoga or the creation of art using the noted mediums is necessary.  The space will provide a  non judgmental attitude toward other participants and self throughout the afternoon along with workshop leaders to help guide you along your path of exploration in a compassionate manner.   Join us in this unique offering that connects you with your creative soul and infuses yoga practices that can guide you in making sustainable changes this coming year.
