Yoga and the Artist's Way

Yoga and the Artist's Way

There is a limited belief that creativity is only for those born with it. This simply isn't true. A creative spirit lives within all of us. It becomes stifled with disuse and lost in the mire of busyness. Join Ahoo in this 12 week workshop series, to harness your creative self and help bring that self to the light. 

Using the weekly lessons of the award winning book "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron, we will meet once a week for an hour. Each session will begin with a discussion and review of our creative process of the week before, a weekly Brain Dump exercise, a discussion over that week's chapters and finished with mindful movement and meditation.

Join every week, join only when needed, our goal is reignite your creative passion. And to help uncover those limiting beliefs that are holding you back and instead replace them with productivity and creativity. You do not need to be working towards any goal with this, the process is the goal. Some of us may be working towards a novel, a new painting, a new music composition, all creative processes are welcomed! 

An award winning graphic designer and painter, Ahoo's background is in Film and Video. She holds an MFA in creative writing from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. She uses mediitation and mindful creativity when writing and painting in her free time.

SIGN UP HERE - $120 for the entire 12 weeks or a weekly drop-in of $10.
