A yoga and meditation workshop for people who make art (of any kind, for love or money or both), to help with generating ideas, working through creative blocks and accessing the deep creative power within. 

The workshop begins with a guided meditation based on studies of the relationship between yoga and creativity. 

Then, a strong vinyasa flow yoga practice, sequenced with anatomical intelligence, and weaving in poses, yoga mythology and theories from anthropological research that all come together to bring the practitioner closer to their creative core, and banish the fear of not being good enough. 

This strong practice gradually comes down to more gentle, restorative postures, and then some time for idea-making; you will be given the space to sit on the mat and explore, in writing or with visual art, the openness and ideas that the practice has brought up. Finally, this physical and creative work gives way to a deep, guided relaxation to integrate the ideas and inspiration gained, so that you can go away with a renewed confidence and belief in your creative ability. 

Please bring a notepad, pen or pencils and any other materials you like to use for writing/drawing.
