This workshop will include gentle yoga and qi gong movement and expressive art/journaling. No previous art, journaling or movement experience is necessary. Using gentle movement, music, meditation, and art, you will be able to access core thoughts, emotions, and insights in safe, supportive environment.

Our world is full of schedules and responsibilities with little time for reprieve and relaxation. Sometimes, we need to step off the treadmill and meet up with ourselves again. We will begin with gentle yoga and movement, then we will incorporate the use of an art medium to express your inner creativity and experience. We will have a time of meditation as well as discussion and interpretation of your experience. Each session will build on the previous session as you continue to explore your vision for the present and the future.

Health Benefits

Yoga increases flexibility, strength, balance, and concentration. Meditation induces relaxation and has been proven to lower blood pressure for some individuals. The use of art and journaling has been used by many psychotherapists to access inner thoughts, emotions, and insights. When we are in touch with our bodies, thoughts, and emotions, we are better able to live healthy, authentic, productive lives.
