Daily life is often the greatest barrier to creation. We become absorbed in routines and the samskara of habitual living. Sometimes we need community to create. Paint Your Practice was designed to help remove common obstacles to creativity, such as a lack of space, materials, community, time, and inspiration. All you have to do for this creative class is bring your body and an open mind; Izzy will provide the space, materials, yoga practice, prompts, support, and community. Together we'll make a space that's inspiring, warm, and full of collaboration. Throughout practice, we’ll explore the layers of emotions, aesthetics, kinesthetics, heart, breath, and brush. You do not have to be an "artist" or a "yogi" to participate—you just have to be willing to explore, and open to possibilities.
This 90 minute workshop will begin just like a regular yoga class, with breathwork and movements to warm up the body. Students will then be led through and build upon a simple sequence that almost anyone can do, with the idea that repetition creates confidence. Once we have created a meditation in motion, then the paint gets involved!
Be sure to bring an extra set of clothing to wear after class. As we move, you will want to be wearing white or clothing you don't care about. When its all said and done, students are welcome to cut out their piece of canvas and take it home.
