ABOUT THE TEACHER

Yun loves all kinds of movement. She dedicates most of her time to practicing and teaching yoga and meditation, then the rest to pilates, barre method and many other types of expressive, intelligent movement. Yun also enjoys cooking up new salad recipes, blending smoothies and taking very long walks in nature.

She loves the practice of yoga simply because you can start wherever you are. It does not matter what injuries one has, how much one can bring hands to touch the toes or how many handstands one can do in a minute. As long as you want to, you can, but with adequate lessons and attention. With 6 years of yoga teaching and 11 years of mat practice, she is extremely humbled to guide yogis in Paris through the knowledge she has received from her teachers over the years.

Her influence includes teachings from the Anusara method, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Jivamukti and AcroYoga.

Art Relief for Stress Workshop with Guest Teacher Sun, 21 May 2017 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

ART RELIEF FOR STRESS WORKSHOP 
with Salma Zulfiqar

Sunday, May 21 * 14h-16h * 35€

DESCRIPTION
Come and spend an afternoon outdoors with us making mandalas! This workshop is for anyone, whether you are an artist or not, who is interested in a creative experience to compliment your yoga and other wellness habits. Studies have shown that just "45 minutes of creative activity significantly lessens stress in the body, regardless of artistic experience or talent" (Huffington Post).  

The workshop will include:
  • An introduction of how and why art can help relieve stress.
  • Create you own colour board with your favourite colours on paper and discuss the meaning of colours and how they affect our moods.
  • Introduction to Mandalas (example pictured)
 
A mandala is a complex abstract design that is usually circular in form. In fact, "mandala" is a Sanskrit word that means "circle". Mandalas generally have one identifiable center point, from which emanates an array of symbols, shapes and forms.

Mandalas can contain both geometric and organic forms. They can also contain recognizable images that carry meaning for the person who is creating it.

In essence, mandalas represent the connection between our inner worlds and outer reality. Designing your own mandalas can be both inspirational and therapeutic.

Under the instructor's guidance you will be given examples of Mandalas to copy and draw and then paint or colour them using acrylic paints, coloured pencils, or paint pencils.

WHAT TO BRING 
  • A hard surface to use for mandala drawing (i.e. notebook, clipboard, book, etc)
  • Something to sit on if you are not comfortable in the grass (i.e. camping chair, stool, towel, mat, etc)
  • Ruler and compass

All other art materials are included in the workshop price, and will be provided by the instructor such as the card for drawing the mandalas, paper to create the mood board, pencils and paint, paper plates for mixing paint, brushes, and colouring pencils.
