ART WORKSHOP: ENGAGING THE SCALE EMOTION!
By Sarah Bradpiece, MA
I have created a drawing workshop for anyone wanting to develop their creative process to run in conjunction with the yoga course run by Atalya Levy.
As yoga focuses the attention on the body's internal space, and the nuances of the body dialogue, so the drawing course will seek to reflect this by paying attention to the action of drawing as well as how we really see and how we think.
Mark making, tone and perspective can be a gesture of using a tiny paintbrush with the thumb and forefinger, or using the whole body to create a line in wet sand with a stick.
India is a mammoth landscape of massive contrasts. From tiny miniatures painted with minute attention to detail, to the huge effigies of the Buddha or Hindu Gods. Indian culture is in itself a masterclass at engaging the emotions of 'SCALE'.
Using different mediums, ranging from fine pen and ink, to thick charcoal and powder pigments, we will begin by exploring the way 'scale' engages our attention.
This is a unique opportunity to challenge, play and explore your creative nature and unleash the exciting undiscovered parts of yourself.
The YogaPlus+ Package
The retreat runs for 9 days and consists of 1 daily yoga class plus 2 daily Art classes. We also provide accommodation, breakfast and lunch.
Your day begins with an invigorating morning yoga class followed by a healthy, delicious breakfast.
You will then have the first of your Art classes followed by lunch.
Lunch consists of a hearty, nutritious meal made from locally sourced ingredients. We offer vegetarian or vegan food but if you have any specific dietary requirements then please let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you.
After lunch it's your chance for some free time to enjoy the beach, explore the local area or just chill in a hammock.
Your second Art class is in the afternoon.
You are then free to enjoy the sunset and jam sessions on the beach and in the evening sample the cuisine in one of the many local restaurants. We strive to achieve a healthy balance between learning and fun during your YogaPlus+ retreat.
The Tipi Garden Resort is in Kudle Beach in the South Indian state of Karnataka.
Located on a beautiful, palm-fringed, tropical beach on India's Arabian Sea coast, next to the holy town of Gokarna, the Tipi Garden Resort has a variety of accommodation to suit every taste. From luxury tipis, to traditional rooms and even a treehouse-style rooftop.
The accommodation is set in a vibrant, tropical garden just one minute from the beach.
The Tipi Garden Resort is located on a large piece of private land hemmed in by the stunning beach and the forested green foothills of the Western Ghats. Kudle Beach can be easily reached by taxi or rickshaw from Gokarna town.
Gokarna is well connected by bus and train. Buses stop right in town and Gokarna Road railway station is just 15 minutes away by taxi. The nearest airport is Goa's Dabolim Airport which is 150km north of Gokarna. If you require any assistance with your travel arrangements please contact us.
