time to make shift happen.
join Sarah to do it. this sunday at 4:30. at ALTERED STATES, our YOGA+ workshop of the month.
the idea is simple. yoga often brings us to a state of heightened awareness, openness and creativity…the same kind of state many artists experience while deep in their work.
Sarah has a workshop planned to get you some of that ALTERED STATES and use what happens in body during yoga and in the way you see the world through drawing.
This workshop is for all experience levels of yoga and drawing. It is a meditative practice that will aim to teach you how to really see an object and record your process of seeing through a series of exercises designed to teach you to link your eye and your hand.
