Craving more self expression and movement? Or a mid summer boost?

Imagine feeling connected to your creative spirit and body… and knowing how to reconnect to that feeling when life gets busy!

Rise into Ease is an art and yoga workshop where you’ll learn how to awaken your creativity at any time as we delve into intuitive painting alongside three series of yoga postures to open mind and body.

Why Rise into Ease?

Rise into Ease reflects the belief that everything you need is already inside you. Often the layers of expectations and responsibilities cover up our inner drive and self expression. And there’s simply no time for creative endeavors! (Or so we think.)

This unique workshop shows you how to access and express your creative spirit while giving you an afternoon to immerse yourself in the creative process. The combination of intuitive painting and yoga boosts your energy and ignites your creativity effortlessly.

When you are feeling scattered, lacking creativity, or disconnected, learning to Rise into Ease channels your own creative energy into a inspiring flame for self expression. And when you show up as your beautiful, creative self you’ll notice life and art flow with ease!

How it works

In this 4-hour workshop, you’ll learn how to start an intuitive painting with oils, how to choose a colour palette that reflects how you want to feel while you are painting, and you will loosen up your painting style. (Even if you don’t know your painting style yet!) Painting should be fun and filled with ease, even if you’ve never painted before!

You’ll be playing with watercolours and oil paints. All supplies are included and you will leave with a painted canvas. During the workshop we will take short yoga breaks to get you out of your head and connect to your intuitive self. We’ll do a grounding practice to begin, enjoy a heart opening sequence to ignite your creative spirit, and end with a relaxing restorative practice. When you leave you’ll be relaxed and energised with the tools to tap into your creativity and intuition with ease.

Welcoming beginners through to advanced yogis and painters. No experience in yoga or art needed!
