Yoga And Painting : The Ocean
NOA NOA and Placeom are excited to offer you this new and special class where yoga and creativity come together. We are inviting you to delve into the beautiful ocean of your imagination where you allow your creative side to express itself to the fullest.
Knowing your creative potential can be incredibly rewarding and therapeutic. Yoga has a capacity to open people creatively and this is exactly what we would like you to explore.
We have chosen to work with a water element which is soft yet powerful and serves as a symbol of fluidity, openness and unlimited possibilities.
YOGA - 11am - 11:30am
We will focus on four aspects that can make us feel more creative: Relaxation, Focus, Imagination, and Flow.
We will first start with the breathing technique to relax our minds and bodies. We will then bring our awareness into the focus directing all of our attention to the present moment. This will be followed by a meditation that is aimed to stimulate your ability to visualise and take you on a journey through your imagination. This will be continued by a dynamic and continuous yoga hatha flow, exploring the water element and focusing on fluid spine movements with eyes often closed, gaze directed inwards.
Please wear comfortable and sporty clothes and bring a yoga mat. If you don’t have a mat it will also be ok to do it on the floor or a carpet.
The yoga class will then be followed by a painting session which is described below
PAINTING - 11:30am - 12:10pm
