This 2 hour workshop will help you learn how use both mindfulness and movement to activate your creative process.
There are 4 key stages of the creative brain: preparation, incubation, illumination, and verification. The more effectively we move through these 4 stages the easier we generate and launch new ideas. However for most of us, creativity is not something we can turn on and off. It’s a space we enter into, sometimes inconsistently.
The stillness of meditation and the movement of yoga can help us develop space in our bodies and minds to allow us to more easily connect to our creativity. Better supporting each of the creative stages.
Creativity requires both freedom and constraint in our thinking. We will practice both throughout this workshop and provide tools for you to utilize at home after the workshop.
