FAQs

1. Can I participate if I am not an experienced artist?

Of course! This class is designed for beginners to experienced artists. We will meet each other where we are and share our gifts. The art projects are designed for all levels and styles.

2. Can I participate if I have never done yoga or have some physical limitations?

Definitely! The yoga poses and sequences I share are designed to enhance creativity and relaxation – not to achieve an intense workout. If you are like me, they will make your feel amazing! As the saying goes, “If you can breathe, you can do yoga.” There are always ways to modify poses. I understand having physical limitations as I have one also. This course is designed for all ages and skill level.

3. Will we just be painting flowers?

No, although flowers will emerge in at least a few of the projects. You will learn mixed media art techniques that can be applied to any subject that you want to paint after the class is over.  We will complete 5 art pieces together that will be connected to nature and yoga. In the final project, I share how I paint my yoga mats. You can paint a mat with me or do a similar style of painting on canvas.

4. What if I get behind in the class lessons?

You will have access to the course content for 6 months. The private Facebook page will stay open and has no closing date. Please remember, this is not a race! I hope everyone will embrace a slower pace to savor each lesson rather than rush through each one. This itself is a practice in slowing down and enjoying each moment as it comes.

5. Why did you create Journey into the Self: Yoga Inspired Art

While writing an art book this past year, I hit a roadblock. Each time I tried to write, I felt lethargic, my attention span was short, and my mind felt fuzzy rather than sharp. I sensed that I was going to have to align my mind, body and soul to create this labor of love. Unfortunately, my body felt kinda dead. I have been living with a medical condition which physical activity not only difficult but potentially life-threatening for the past 11 years.

My inner voice kept whispering that it was time to do yoga. So I went to a yoga class, and it was really hard. My body was shaky and weak. I was discouraged at my abilities, BUT I felt so amazing after the class that I was hooked.  I felt achy and light, and most importantly more alive. Since then, I’ve come to believe that if everybody did yoga it would change the world.

6. How has yoga influenced your art?

Yoga has transformed my creative process, which can be seen visually in my recent work. When I began practicing yoga, I realized how tight my upper body was, and I have been focusing on the idea of “opening” for months. I can tell this physical opening has allowed me to be more receptive to receiving inspiration and releasing it as well. I am working from a different place now—less in my mind and more in tune my entire body, which allows my creativity to flow out onto the canvas with joy and ease.

Join me for as we walk together towards a Journey to the Self and express our unique divine light through Yoga Inspired Art.. I know it will be a remarkable journey to share together and am excited to see what unfolds when we open to ourselves, to each other, and to our innate creative wellspring within.

Blessings and Namaste,

Carrie
