Express Yourself Workshops 2018-01-01T18:37:18+00:00

Art&Yoga

Let’s create something beautiful through colors.

These workshops are divided into 2 sessions, Yoga followed by Art.

Living is growing and changing. Let’s experience new things, get a better understanding of ourselves, and let’s get growing in a positive way through art and yoga therapy.

Body movements and drawings are simply part of the human instinct to communicate and express ourselves. They are not only a great way to create something beautiful, but they are also a fantastic and creative way for relieving stress, enhancing creativity, developing problem-solving abilities, building leadership and social skills.

Art therapy helps people express those thoughts, emotions, and experiences that may be difficult to speak about, those things that keep us from growing in a positive way. It is a form of psychotherapy involving the encouragement of free self-expression through painting, drawing, or modeling.

We are so excited to kick off 2018 with yet another collaboration with the colorful Blank Canvas Community on January 13 in Manarat Saadiyat.

The key to entering the body is to embrace the first Chakra element, Earth. Express yourself with Inner Seed and explore what it is to feel balanced and grounded as we walk you through interactive group sessions and a healing chakra yoga sequence with like-minded people.

Once you’ve stretched your mind, body and spirit, you can join Blank Canvas for a collaborative painting session.

The Root Chakra, Muladhara is your energy centre that connects you to the core of the earth and is associated with the feeling of safety and grounding. It’s at the base of the chakra system and lays the foundation for expansion in your life. The root chakra provides the foundation on which we build our life, where we ground ourselves. It supports us in growing and feeling safe into exploring all the aspects of life.

What does healing the Root chakra mean?

Root chakra healing fosters proper energy flow throughout the body giving the chakra system a firm foundation on which the other energy centers may function. When the first chakra is blocked or somehow off balance, it is not uncommon to exhibit uncharacteristic behaviors, like paranoia, being short-tempered or aggressive. Healing your root chakra empowers you to confidently face whatever life may bring.

This 90 min session will teach you how to self diagnose a weak chakra and go over common symptoms addressed by root chakra healing.

Hosted by BLANK CANVAS

What in your life makes you feel grounded? Do you feel stable?
The root chakra is comprised of whatever grounds you to stability in your life. This includes your basic needs such as food, water, shelter, and safety, as well as your more emotional needs such as letting go of fear. When these needs are met, you feel grounded and safe, and you tend to worry less day to day.
We will gather around a blank canvas and express ourselves individually and collectively as we explore, unlock and realign the Root Chakra. We will paint our vision, our perception of this theme and move around the canvas to build on one another’s artwork until we create a unified Art piece.
Simultaneously, during the 90 minute session we will remain mindful and keep returning to our breath when our mind wanders.
This experience of creative expression will help relieve any stored feelings inside of you and it will leave you feeling accomplished, connected, and peaceful. You will feel this deep sense of belonging, that you are part of something bigger and have contributed to the whole.
