Yoga for Creativity Workshop: Recap

If you couldn’t make our last workshop at 3rd Street Yoga this Sunday or you just want to remind yourself of what we did, here’s a little sneak peak of what you may have missed:

We started off class with an exercise that melds drawing with breathing, a nice way to center yourself because as we know, “a relaxed mind is a creative mind” (thanks Yogi Bhajan).  This wonderful kriya comprised the bulk of our physical activity, here taught by Sat Dharam Kaur.  Several meditations from Yogi Bhajan’s intellectual and inspiring book, “The Mind” had us chanting and holding our arms up in somewhat challenging positions….not that the arms or so challenging, but holding them up for 11 minutes can really create a nice burn! All to ignite more creativity.  We rounded out the class with a class-created visualization savasana, which is also a great technique to use with your middle school and high school students.  Hope you can join us next time.
