Color yourself calm with an evening of gentle movement, guided meditation, and coloring your very own mandala, hosted by Yoga Flow with Lisa Mo.
Mandalas are mystical symbols, typically circular and geometric in form, and represent wholeness or unified energy. They have played a role in Eastern spiritual development for centuries, and are widely favored as meditational focal points because of their balancing and calming effects. The practice of coloring mandalas is a way not only to focus your mind and calm down your awareness, but also to open your heart.
As kids, we were constantly doing things with our hands and colors. But as adults, most of us have stopped doing that. We’ve lost our creative outlet. Until now ! Not only is coloring mandalas a fun and creative activity, but it has been shown to have therapeutic benefits such as reducing stress and anxiety, improving focus and concentration, and promoting relaxation.
This workshop is open to people of all skill levels, even if you think you’re not an artist! Lisa Mo will begin with some gentle breathwork and movement (no need to bring a yoga mat–you’ll do this in your seat), then she’ll walk you through a guided visualization to awaken your creative energy. She’ll teach you about the meaning of mandalas and the symbolism behind the colors you choose to use, and you’ll get to color a beautiful mandala and tap into your inner artist.
Complimentary wine and hot tea will be served. All materials needed to complete your mandala project will be provided.
Pre-registration through EventBrite is encouraged for $15. Cost increases to $20 at the door the day of event.
