NamARTste explores CONSCIOUS CREATIVITY through the union of the Arts and the eight limbed path of Yoga
Our Yoga and Art series is designed to awaken and exercise your creativity through 60 minutes of yoga and 90 minutes of making. We’ve combined our favourite styles of Yoga with an array of artistic techniques and mediums to give you the ultimate taste of creative living.
In this Yoga & Art session, let the outside world melt away through a nourishing Yin Yoga practice, channelling stillness and presence before delving into Wabi Sabi - a Japanese philosophy of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, accepting the natural cycle of growth and death. Wabi Sabi celebrates the cracks, crevices and all the other marks that time, weather, and loving use leave behind.
During this workshop you will be immersed in a soft and nurturing yin yoga practice before exploring the tactile world of pot making inspired by the principles of Wabi Sabi.
This 2.5 hour session will include:
60 minute Yin Yoga Practice
90 minute pot making class exploring the process of joining clay and unique techniques for combining two or more colours of clay.
Discussion of philosophy and practice of Wabi Sabi in your life.
Yin Yoga allows us to work deeply into the connective tissues of the body (fascia and myo-fascia) through extended holds between 2-7 minutes. Longer holds Increase circulation and release stagnant energy. Let go and restore with this deeply reflective and gentle practice, bringing the yang of our daily lives into balance and inviting us to fall into a deeper meditation practice. Suitable for all levels.
