What is ArtFormYoga?
Art Form Yoga is a platform to highlight the Inner Artist alive in everyone. When we gather and share our unique expression, magic happens. Well-versed in the language of each other, a community thrives. The purpose of gathering is to harmonize our energies, envision & collaborate on the project of eARTh.
The process of combining art & yoga flowed through me one night as I set a blank canvas at the end of my mat, created a restorative yoga sequence, and allowed my intuition to freely express itself through paint and canvas.
I was blown away by what surfaced through me - a spiraling helix image embedded with subconscious insight. Gazing upon the painting became a meditation, a conversation with an aspect of myself I had never met before.
A voice spoke to me from deep within, telling me to share this practice with as many people as possible.
At first, I thought I could do so only through paid private sessions and workshops held at yoga studios. I succumbed to the external influence of packaging spiritual concepts & tagging them with a pretty price-tag bow.
While following this process, I soon realized that Art Form Yoga became a way of life - I had to live it before teaching it. The process of combining yogic techniques & artistic mediums of expression left the confines of the mat & colored every action of my life. Every single moment presented itself as a blank canvas awaiting creative exploration.
From cooking to running to having a simple conversation, everything revealed its inner art-form and potential for heightened presence.
Art Form Yoga is continuously revealing itself to me in new ways. The multitude of my offerings all share this common thread: giving form to the inspiration uncovered through my yoga practice. When consistently employed, yoga becomes a natural state of union that you carry throughout the day, not simply contained in an allotted amount of time spent twisting through different positions. Life is yoga.
Yoga reveals the beauty in everything, the sacred in every moment, the blessing in every breath.It connects us to our very Source, the creative potential of pure consciousness.
Art allows us to give form to this formlessness, to manifest the interminable beauty within. Yoga and art go hand in hand;
yoga opens our hearts and minds to the infinite while art allows us to express it.
We start to see that our very lives are works of art, and ourselves the artists.
