What is YogART ?
YogART is simple but profound practice. It is a contemplative tool for fostering your creative self. YogART is a practical integrative five fold approach that brings together the practices of yoga, stream of consciousness writing, creative visualization, transformative art making, and dialogue for all people of all ages. The transformative process begins with Yoga as a way to ground into ones own body and breath. The experience then flows into stream of consciousness writing, where the unknown become known. After this process, the YogARTian is brought back into the sphere of the imagination, through a guided creative visualization. This then becomes a jumping off point for transformative art making. The closing of the YogART practice is through sharing and witnessing each participants artwork and discovery.
