'Create your great' Yoga & Art day

Redcar and Cleveland
yoga - Up to 12 people

Description

An idea came to me recently to bring together 2 areas of my life and work that I love...... yoga & art.

I've been practising yoga for over 20 yrs and teaching it for over a year. I have also been running a successful life drawing group for 9 yrs.

Yoga helps me in so many ways both physically and mentally, and when I paint or draw worries and stress simply drift away. With both I am transported to a calmer and more serene state.

So I decided to team up with my wonderful friend and local art teacher Audrey Sanderson to deliver a relaxing and chilled out day of mindfulness and well-being with yoga, drawing and painting.

If you like the sound of this then read on, and if you still like by the end then book yourself a space too..... :-)

Our location for the day is Baby Moon in Dunsdale. It's a rustic, back to basics type of place with roaming chickens, hay bails to sit on outdoors, woodland areas, a stream, a fire pit and yurt huts. It's a real comfort of a place away from the busyness of life. Nestled into the Guisborough and Redcar area countryside it's a great place for a little day of escape.

Materials for the art part will be provided or you're welcome to bring your own. Yoga mats are provided too. I would recommend you bring a blanket and/or cushions for support during the yin session and relaxation time.

Schedule for the day (the loose plan):

10am - Yoga with Christine......meet and get settled in our lovely space overlooking the woodland and space of Baby Moon ready for yoga. We will enjoy a slow flow yoga session aimed at waking up and tapping into our creative energies

11.15am - 12.45pm - Art with Audrey...... drawing or painting our surroundings and various objects chosen on the day, we hope to spend at least some time, if not all enjoying this in the outdoors but this will be weather dependent

12.45pm - 1.30pm - lunch (provided by Baby Moon)

1.30pm - 3.00pm - 2nd art session with Audrey

3.00pm - 3.15pm - reflect and review and maybe a quick brew

3.30pm - 4.30pm - settle in for a gorgeous yin yoga session with meditation, ahhhhh

4.30pm - float home on a cloud of bliss

Some benefits of yoga:

  1. Decreased stress and anxiety levels
  2. switches us from the flight and fight response to rest and digest, nurturing and nourishing our cells
  3. improves flexiblity, balance and strength
  4. brings us into the present moment, creating a sense of calm and focus

& some benefits of painting/drawing:

Drawing or painting can work wonders for your health. With our hectic lifestyles we often struggle to switch off. Getting back to basics with simple materials like paper and pencil can draw the focus inwards to induce a sense of calm and well-being.

  1. optimistic emotions - Art enhances positive emotions, it clears out the mind and kills negativity
  2. enhanced creativity - holding a pencil or paintbrush triggers your brain to start imagining
  3. Relaxation - art is therapeutic and a good way to relax
  4. art makes us happier - art releases dopamine, resulting in feelings of pleasure and positivity

WOW..... 2 amazingly beneficial things to spend your Sunday doing folks, if you agree then we'd love to see you there. Just one last thing to add, we also predict it will be a lot of fun too :-)
