Zentangle & Yoga: The perfect duet
March 13, 2016 • Leave a Comment
Yesterday I taught a class with my yogi friend, Ann, combining Yoga with Zentangle. Ann owns Rise Wellness (RiseYoga.com) in the Greenhaven/Pocket area of Sacramento. This is the 2nd time we have taught this class.
It's obvious that Zentangle and Yoga are a perfect duet! Ann likes to call Zentangle a Moving Meditation and I can't agree with her more.
We had a small class of 6, and after a brief introduction to Zentangle, Ann led the class in some breathing and stretching. Then I took over and we started our first tile. After a few tangles, we switched back to Ann for more fantastic stretching and breathing exercises which really kept everyone nice and loose for more drawing. We went on like that until the tile was finished!
A student, Nancy, who has been in a prior class of mine, brought some of her wonderful Bijou art to show. Everyone was drawn to her Phicops tangle! So when we were done with our last stretch, I asked her to be a guest teacher and show everyone how she creates this beautiful tangle. The results were awesome as you can see by the pictures.!
As always, it was a nice relaxing day with Zentangle and Yoga.
