Movement, Meditation & Expressive Arts for Women 18+

Our world is full of schedules and responsibilities with little time of reprieve and relaxation. Sometimes, we need to step off the treadmill and meet up with ourselves again. This is an opportunity and invitation to incorporate gentle movements with expressive art and insights. We will begin with gentle yoga and movement, we will then 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 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.
