    Illustrate Your Breath

    taught by Sarah Hutcherson


    Whether you are new to gentle breathwork or have an established breathing practice, this workshop invites you to witness and draw how the breath ebbs and flows throughout your day. You will learn the physical and mental benefits of conscious breathing through practicing gentle breathing techniques, while developing an understanding of how the environment and your emotions change your breath's quality.

    Each student will receive a blank journal to illustrate the breath not only during the workshop sessions but in between the two sessions when they feel called. The intention is for attendees to leave each hour of the workshop restored and more aware of the precious power of their breath to invigorate creativity and possibility.

    All materials and tools will be provided for the class.

    Serenity Now: Mandala Drawing #2

    taught by Theresa Morrison

    Stress is a thing we all deal with in life and having an outlet for that stress becomes important. Mandala drawing has become that outlet for me and I want to share that with you!

    If you can doodle…you can draw a mandala. It's not about perfection, it's about the repetitive motion of creating something amazing and letting all of your stress go.

    In this class, you will learn the basics of mandala drawing. You will leave this class with a mandala drawing kit (including all of the tools to start drawing a mandala from scratch), the skills to draw a mandala from scratch, at least two completed mandala drawing and a little more inner peace.

    Nature's Design

    taught by Maria Brown


    Immerse yourself in the serenity of nature and unleash your creativity with our Nature's Design course. In this transformative journey, we combine the restorative powers of meditation, breathwork, and artistic expression using elements sourced directly from the natural world.

    Throughout the course, you will embark on a profound exploration of grounding techniques, drawing inspiration from the tranquility of the great outdoors. Guided meditation sessions will lead you to a place of inner calm and connection with the earth, while breathwork exercises will help you harness the rejuvenating energy of the natural world.

    In the artistic component of the course, you will channel your newfound sense of peace and harmony into the creation of stunning artworks. Using pine cone scales, twigs, bark, and other organic materials, you will learn to craft intricate designs on white-washed wood canvases. You'll explore various techniques to manipulate these natural elements, transforming them into vibrant representations of flora and fauna. From delicate flowers to graceful butterflies, each piece will be a testament to the beauty and resilience of the natural world.

    Through this holistic approach to creative wellness, you will not only cultivate a deeper connection with nature but also nurture your own sense of balance and well-being. Join us on this journey of self-discovery, and let the beauty of nature ignite your imagination and soothe your soul.

    On a nice day, the meditation/breathwork sessions would be conducted outdoors in the park on yoga mats that will be provided.

    All materials and tools will be provided for the class.
