Yoga_DSC_4359-TiRestorative Yoga

Instructor Claire Manganello
Saturday, May 14, 2:00- 4:00 pm

Fee: $25 - Registration is required. Space is limited - REGISTER HERE

Embrace this opportunity to learn ways to quiet the nervous system, quiet the mind, connect with nature and to find harmony and balance in your life. Restorative yoga is a nurturing practice that promotes deep relaxation and renewal within the body. Props such as bolsters, pillows and folded blankets support and stabilize the body in restorative yoga postures that are usually held for 3-10 minutes! The postures are designed to release deeply held tensions, sooth the nervous system, strengthen the immune system and refill our spiritual wells. Warm-up exercises, postures, meditation, and yogic breathing release stress and promote healing during this gentle practice. After a restorative yoga session, most people feel rested, renewed, more deeply connected to their authentic self, and more open to healing, growth and balance in their lives. Please consider nurturing your soul with one of these gentle but powerful classes.

Oil Painting Workshop with a Twist for the Beginner to the Intermediate (Adults) Reawaken Your Creative Soul and Learn to Paint

Wednesdays 9 am - 12 pm (6 week session)
Starts: Wednesday, April 27, 2022
Ends: Wednesday, June 8, 2022 (NO CLASS MAY 25)
Fee: $198 (plus $28 supply fee). SOLD OUT

Tap into an extraordinary resource: the vibrant, vital force of your own creative character in a nurturing, encouraging, and safe environment and discover your distinctive path to oil painting. You only need bring the willingness to give up any attachment to feeling you have no talent or creativity. The focus of this workshop is to enjoy the creative experience and self-nurturing qualities oil painting can provide to your soul. It offers a unique blend of learning the basics of oil painting materials, foundations of color theory, color mixing, composition and working with the flow of the creative process to awaken creative spirit, remember playfulness, and open a fuller expression of authentic self by nurturing your essence. Artist Jennings approaches teaching each student individually, so they can paint freely, at their own level, and paint a subject (landscape, still life, portrait, abstract, interior, etc. from life and/or from a photograph) befitting their skills and needs. The workshop can be used as a vehicle for expression, playing with paint, learning the techniques of oil painting, and/or to have instructional oil painting, which means you truly can be a beginner, intermediate, or simply get a feel for oil painting. All supplies will be provided or bring your own supplies if you prefer.

For students who have absolutely no background in painting and desire instructional painting, I recommend one or two private classes with me before jumping into a six-week session. If this isn't feasible, I ask for patience, particularly on the first day, and encourage you to contact me with your email and phone # so I can connect with you at least one week before class. (LTryonJennings@gmail.com, 781-837-7982 landline).

All supplies will be provided or bring your own supplies if you prefer. There is a 12-student maximum. No Credits or Refunds. Please note that we are constantly monitoring COVID in our area and this in-person class is subject to date changes. If we do have to cancel you will be refunded in full. Registration fee does not include the event platform fee from constant contact. This event is in person at Hope Floats Healing and Wellness Center, 4 Elm Street, Kingston, MA 02364.
