Acceptance and Pre-Recorded Yoga Workshop: This video yoga workshop will lead you through a selection of yoga poses to engage you in activating acceptance toward one’s Self and others as you synchronize your mind and body. Acceptance refers to one’s ability to recognize the reality of a situation or experience without attempting to change or protest it. When we practice Yoga, we are naturally accepting the present moment and opening space to really feel and embody what it means to welcome a variety of emotional and physical sensations. Through the art of Yoga and slowing down the mind, we connect back to the true essence of who we are - connecting mind, body, and soul. We tap into an inner knowing that brings us to a space of acceptance for ourselves.
Art and Acceptance Pre-Recorded Creativity Workshop: Abstract Watercolor II: This video art workshop will lead you through an exploration of abstract watercolor methods and build upon Abstract Watercolor I. The video workshop’s focus includes reviewing basic watercolor techniques, building up color, and reductive methods to achieve your desired effect. You will participate in a mindfulness practice to help you connect and allow your mind to rest. This will help you to accept your emotional and physical sensations and focus on the present. While working at your own pace, you will practice controlling brush strokes, water, and saturation of color. The culmination of the video workshop will be the creation of a finished piece, incorporating the practices learned. Working independently, you will strengthen skills in confidence and creative intuition while developing your own method of mark-making and symbol and pattern creation to compose the visual space.
