Art & Yoga Retreat

Art and Yoga.
These mediums are incredible forms
of expression that allow you to truly tap
into your body, mentally and physically.

Have you ever wanted to just sit and create? To be given a safe space where you could allow your emotions and heart to be felt and seen in various ways?

We feel this too. Deeply, in fact.

So much so that we wanted to be in that space with you and provide an opportunity to connect a little bit deeper with our global creative community.

As artists and yoginis, Lauren O’Meara and I fully believe in the power of intention and the ability we all have to tune in with ourselves by simply being curious. Throughout our time together, we will be exploring our sensations and diving into the heart of who we are by creating.Each day we will be focusing on a different chakra through yoga practice, meditation and various art mediums.This retreat is open for all levels of artists and yogis. It doesn’t matter if you have never practiced yoga or picked up a paint brush.

All we ask is that you come with an open mind and heart!

Lauren O’Meara

Lauren O’Meara is an abstract acrylic artist from Melbourne, Australia who explores reality abstraction through the use of colour and composition. Lauren has always been drawn to creative expression but it wasn’t until two years ago that her life became about making and beginning in her life as an artist. For her, art is the gateway between inconceivable energies and physical understand. She believes that creativity is a force that burns inside all living things and tapping into this power leads to a more balanced and rich human experience.

Shannen Maher

Shan Maher is a yoga teacher, writer and dreamer who currently resides in the PNW teaching a variety of studio classes and workshops. Shan believes that yoga is our bodies way of writing poetry. She believes that connection begins with curiosity and the surrender into every sensation that flows throughout our body. Shan’s yoga classes emphasize slower more mindful movements that allow breathe to penetrate every ounce of the body. She believes that the breath is the boss of our practice and the foundation which allows us to expand and explore deeper into our mind and body.
