Embodying Nature - Intuitive Painting & Meditation Course

Tuesday 10 September - Tuesday 1 October
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The classes combine intuitive painting, meditation, and writing. They provide a safe and positive space for free expression, with the aim to develop an intuitive approach to the creative process. Art is used as a tool for pure self-expression, healing, and transformation.

Participants have the chance to work on any subject, emotion or thought they wish to explore through the process. However, a general theme is always provided. A short guided meditation opens and closes the practice and helps to relax the mind and the body.

The four weeks course will focus on the connection with nature and will use the four elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air) to journey through different aspects of the Self. When we embody nature we are free to be who we are and can connect with the deepest and sacred part of ourselves. Through guided imagery, intuitive painting, and freewriting we will gently explore our lives, creating the space to let go of the old and welcome the new.

All the materials will be provided: acrylic paints, paper, paintbrushes, aprons, towels, sponges etc.

Everyone is welcome and no experience in painting or meditation is required.

Creative Meditation Classes

Thursday 19 September - Thursday 10 October
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Through guided visualisation and some creative practice, we will embrace the present moment allowing mind, body, and spirit to come into a restful state of pure alignment. The classes offer a creative approach to meditation and can include the use of different art materials. Everyone is welcome and no experience is required!

Each week we will explore a different theme and will experiment with some art material! We will start with a gentle guided meditation to connect with our creative energy, to let go of our day and relax. Then we will move into our art practice where you will have the chance to explore any feeling, situation or thought that is there for you on the day. We will close our class with another short meditation to resettle ourselves and get ready to move back into the outside world.

Expect drawing, stone painting, clay modeling, collage and much more!

Informed by a collective of memories from one family home, my practice is an exploration of how I can translate specific personal moments through the process of painting.

“Memories of pleasure, pain, sadness and joy, are the common thread that unites all human beings. Memories are our existence, and art is their system of replication.” (Farr 2012)

A chosen memory is always the stimulus. Developing shapes and forms from initial drawings, my paintings reflect the sensations felt while unpacking the memory, through a specific texture, a precise colour or a particular noise. The drawings vary from memory to memory; sometimes they require a different type of mark or restraint for me to develop the outcome. Shape is an extremely important element in my work. I believe that developing specific shapes, relating to individual objects and spaces (which are often suppressed beneath layers in the painting) harmonises with the mysterious workings of our minds.

Yoga Now is run by Lucy Brownhall, who has been studying Iyengar yoga for 33 years. The studio is fully equipped with mats and everything else you might need, including a rope wall (which is really good fun to use!)

Regular practice of Iyengar yoga has many benefits for physical and mental health. Mr Iyengar is credited with bringing yoga to the West and also with inventing the use of props (bricks, belts, bolsters, chairs and even mats!) which makes it possible for us all to get the full benefit of the practice. At Yoga Now, we teach informative and encouraging classes in the Iyengar tradition. There is clear progression within the levels and all aspects of yoga are gradually introduced, as the students progress.

Iyengar yoga is suitable for everyone and at Yoga Now studio, on the 4th floor of st Margaret’s House, we offer classes for all levels of experience. This class (Level 1) is suitable for Beginners and students wishing to consolidate their study at this level. Once you become familiar with the Level 1 syllabus and your strength and confidence in the poses is established, you will be able to move up to the next level of classes where you will be introduced to a wider syllabus of asanas and to pranayama.

Introductory Pass – £50 for 6 classes (to use in 6 weeks)
Autumn Term Pass – £128 for 16 classes (£8 each)
Drop-in £12 per class
We encourage you to attend the same class each week, with the same teacher, so that they can get to know you and help you progress better. However, if that is not possible, you can use your pass at any suitable class (we have 6 classes per week for beginners to choose from).

Meditative atelier

Monday 30 September
6:00 pm - 6:45 pm

Meditation is simply the creation of a nice space, it’s not achieving ecstasy, it’s slowing down and doing something with mindfulness but above all it starts from breathing. The way of breathing affects the way of thinking. And you won’t switched off your thoughts but your mind will become calmer. The process is not getting away from your mind, but accepting what’s happening without trying to fix our thoughts. We spend ⅓ of our life ruminating about past events, ⅓ illuding ourselves about future. We only have ⅓ left for present time. Meditation is simply being present. How? Starting from your body. If you feel deeply your body while it moves, you become present, because you are concentrated in what you are doing and so a natural status of meditation arises.
