    Students will immerse themselves in the basics of yoga, starting with an active flow series and ending with a lesson in Yin. (Yoga focusing on strength, flexibility, mindfulness/meditation, and deep stretch.) We break up the class with meditation by expression through color and touch base with our current emotions by choosing color combinations that can help define our moods. Every student will apply acrylic paint on to canvas board with a new lesson each day. Each class ends with a yoga-based, cool-down series, and we finish with our final resting pose, eyes closed, laying on our backs on our mats, listening to soft meditation music.
     
    Day 1 will focus on color and expression. On Day 2, each student will have the opportunity to practice line work by using simple photo references provided. (They may also use what's in their head if they choose.) On Day 3, students will combine expression through color with the line work techniques they practiced before to create one final project. And at the end of the three-day workshop, each student will go home with three canvas paintings they made.
     
    Be sure to pack a snack for each student. Yoga mats or towels are optional.
