Yoga, Mindfulness and Life Drawing,

Holistic Drawing

28th April, 2018

At Riverside Cottage, Bransbury, nr Barton Stacey

Drawing is a wonderful, engaging, cerebral affair; you think, you look, you investigate. The aim of this retreat is to engage further; to include your body and your senses in an holistic act of drawing.

Instead of a drawing appearing on the paper from a conjunction of thought and sight alone, you will engage with all your senses, with your breathing, and your body.

You will begin the day with yoga to relax, shed tension and enable you to open yourself to the possibility of drawing with other senses.

In the afternoon our yoga teacher becomes the model.  You will engage with the  model who will reflect poses your body will have learnt. You will be able to feel the stretches as you draw taking you to a new level of engagement with your work.

You will learn how drawing is enriched when you work from a calm place in mind and body. You will feel the rhythm of your breath, trust the intelligence of your body, learn to release tension and discover a freedom and potential for inventiveness.

This course is suitable for all artistic and yoga abilities.

  • 10-5pm,
  • £130 to include yoga class, coffee, tea and light lunch, plus materials
