Yoga and Art Therapy(1).png

Come and join me and Nicky Roland (Art Therapist)  for an afternoon which will include mindful yoga, mindfulness meditation and creative art making.

We will start with gentle yoga, exploring the natural movements of the body to bring us into a somatic experience of presence, discovering the beauty of our inner nature.

We will then move into therapeutic art making and then some group sharing. There will be an opportunity to express yourself in a free and explorative way, with a wide range of art materials available (you are welcome to bring your own too).

This is a time for restoring our bodies, connecting with ourselves, through movement and art expression, and then opening to any wisdom we receive through doing so.

Who is this for?
The afternoon is open to all levels of experience (in Yoga/Mindfulness/art making). Beginners are welcome.

 

I’m really happy to hear from you if you have any questions about this workshop or the practice. Hope to see you then. Held at:
About Balance Brighton, 20-22 Gloucester Place, Brighton,  BN1 4AA.

Cost £45 / £40  Book here or at About Balance

About Nicky:

Nicky Roland is an experienced HCPC registered Art Therapist and a trained mindfulness teacher with several years work experience in the NHS, voluntary sector and in private practice. She specialises in the integration of art therapy and mindfulness and offers one-to-one sessions, weekly groups, workshops, supervision and trainings. The core values embedded in her approach include inviting kindness and care, encouragement of non-judgemental responses, patience in allowing change to occur, and appreciation and recognition of how we are in the present moment.

Nicky believes that image making, within the therapeutic context, has tremendous potential for enhancing well-being and that images can communicate beyond words. She provides a supportive container to enable this expression. This includes supporting individuals who don’t feel they are artistic.www.arttherapyandmindfulness.com

About Tammy:

Tammy's practice is rooted in Buddhism. For many years she practised at a local centre, attending many retreats. She has also explored the teachings and practises of many different traditions, and this fuelled her love of philosophy and inquiry. Yoga played an important part throughout these earlier explorations and led her to the decision to train formally. She completed a two-year 500-hour yoga teacher training which was intense and challenging, but gave her a solid grounding in yoga’s spiritual and physical elements. The training explored the eight limbs of yoga, and as she studied she found her home in the practice. Teaching what she has learned, and what inspires and excites her, is now her passion. Her classes are playful and accessible, while also being heartfelt and informed by a deep belief in the power of yoga. This is the power she communicates through a spirit of lightness, openness and playfulness. Only in freedom, compassionate curiosity and acceptance will true healing happen, and Tammy brings this into her classes by exploring all the elements of yoga: postures, breathwork and meditation.
