Yoga and the Artist Charlotte North Carolina Charlotte Art League Gentle Creative Creativity

Aloha Charlotte Creatives!

Tap into higher inspiration with yogic tools and teachings that empower creative expression! This class is for ALL artists (Poets, photographers, visual artists, writers, MUA, Decorative artists, painters, muscians, etc.).Whatever the medium of your creative expression, yoga complements your creative work and connects you with your creative mind, body, and soul.

As a fellow artist, I understand that the creative process can be hard on the body. Bloggers/writers rarely escape wrist, neck or back aches from long hours spent typing on a computer, visual artists can spend entire days on their feet or crouching in uncomfortable positions, while poets can experience mental blockage and doubt.

When the physical body suffers, so does the creative process. Meditation and yoga grant us access to the deep places of our psyche and consciousness that inspire creative ideas to emerge, while relieving aches and tension within the body.

In this creative and mindful class, we will:

Learn meditation techniques to ease the creative mind
Release pain and tension specifically in the wrists, forearms, neck, back, and joints (inspired by Mukunda Stiles)
Flow through mind-opening gentle yoga poses
Find new creative inspiration
Learn pranayama techniques to boost creative confidence
And connect with other talented artists!

All levels of yoga practitioners and artists are welcome!

Just bring a mat and your beautiful soul!
