Yoga & Zentangle
August 16, 2015 • Leave a Comment
I had the pleasure of co-teaching a Creative Meditation class with my friend, and owner of Rise Wellness, Ann DaPrato. I have been going to Rise for over a year now. Initially I had met Ann and started private sessions with her to see if yoga could alleviate some of my lingering pain from cancer treatment. Then she led me thru the iRest post traumatic stress program. Both of these experiences have been incredibly helpful to me and I also gained a fantastic friend in the process!
When I started teaching Zentangle, Ann was one of my first students. A few days after the class she told me that she had an idea growing that would combine yoga with Zentangle. Well, we finally made it happen!
On August 8th, we held an awesome class at her studio! We started with the history of Zentangle, then Ann took over for some gentle yoga stretching and short meditation. After we completed the tiles below, Ann stepped in again to keep us all centered. We ended the break with about 10 Om's (I don't really remember how many there were, but it was awesome!). Then we completed a Bijou tile using Aquafleur.
Below are the first tiles. If anyone from the class is willing, send me a picture of your Bijou tile. I'd love to add it to this blog.
