Yoga, Mindfulness and Life Drawing

Holistic Drawing Retreat, Yoga, mindfulness and life drawing

Saturday 28th April, 2018
10.00 – 5.00, Lunch, tea and coffee included

At Riverside Cottage, Bransbury, nr Barton Stacey

Drawing is a wonderful, engaging, cerebral affair; you think, you look, you investigate. How do you take this practice to the next level? Use your Body, Mind and Senses in an holistic act of drawing.

Through yoga and basic meditation you will engage with all your senses, with your breathing, and your body. Instead of a drawing appearing on the paper from a conjunction of thought and sight alone, you will become aware of how your own body influences your work.IMG_1810

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.

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. If you want to know more about the course please contact me, Kate.
