Yoga Awakens our  inner body intelligence.
t Communicates from the inside out through visual symbols.
  Art and Yoga connect us with our most intimate self, leading us to
 Quietness and that still small voice within.

Creativity, art, and yoga open the space for unlived energies to emerge, bringing us closer to the union of mind, body, and soul-closer to our truest authentic self.  To interlace the wisdom of both of these ancient disciplines, each informing the other, is transformational. This is new territory, rich fertile soil where seeds of growth and change can flourish.
Within this retreat you will  
  • Experience artmaking & yoga  as a portal into your  soul
  • Learn the meditative art of mandala drawing (It is like doodling)
  • Restore & renew your joyful expansive spirit 
Together these practices empower that forgotten voice to gradually express and release that which has been held within.  When we hold on to  unresolved feelings, our life force stagnates and our growth, our union of mind, body and spirit is thwarted.   Slowly as we begin to remember that whisper as our own, we can begin to journey.   Moving into this creative flow cleanses our body and soul from these stuck energies, reconnecting us into our vital life force.
The resourceful current of our art-making and yoga postures is the balm that transforms this cleansing process into a deep long lasting healing experience.  Whether it’s the yoga mat or the studio table, Heidi and Anne see both practices as a means to allow the mind to still, the body to awaken and the soulful psyche to open. 
Intensely interested in a creative process tharespects intuition and introspection, Heidi brings over 30 years of experience in artmaking and teaching to this series. In 2011, the state of South Carolina awarded her theElizabeth O’Neil Verner Award, the highest honor given to recognize accomplishments within the arts.  Those who have experienced her work recount profound shifts in personal and spiritual awareness. Heidi’s method of teaching grows out of a deep respect for dreams, the work of C.G. Jung, as well as the joyous transformative qualities inherent within the creative act.  Her extroverted husband, her beloved “road less traveled” daughter, her joyous newly wedded son and his beaming wife, along with her family dog Ziggy… keep her grounded and real.  
Anne’s interest in the body began with her dance studies in college, leading to personal training and then to yoga.  
She has spent the last 8 years deepening her vinyassa yoga and meditation practice while raising a family of boys.   Anne  has completed her 200 hour yoga certification with Stephanie Keach.  Anne’s father is a Lutheran minister who instilled a practice of deep heartfelt intuitive prayer at an early age so her interest in reflective meditation comes to her quite naturally and effortlessly.  Her words brush soulful profound images into the spirit of  all who are fortunate to have Anne’s voice wash over their yoga practice. 
Together Heidi and Anne will lead you towards the inner aspect of your true self, stretching beyond your known borders into the spaciousness of  the world around you.
