Full Description

More than twice as many people die from cancer than any fatal diseases combined, according to the CDC. Have you, your loved one, or someone you know have been touched by cancer?

This December, participate in the Painted Yoga for Cancer Support, either by attending the workshop or sponsoring a cancer patient, survivor or their families and friends to attend. The Cancer Support Center will gift your sponsorships to patients or survivors under their care to enable them to attend the workshop. Wherever you are in the world, you can participate in this event by sponsoring a cancer patient or survivor to attend. Can art and yoga make a difference? We believe so.

Why pay hundreds of dollars for an original painting when you can make one? Let's make art while doing yoga. Whether you're creative or not, with or without experience in art, you'll be able to create a painting. In this workshop, participants will create one of a kind piece of artwork with their own unique markings through an array of yoga poses, using washable non-toxic paints on canvas or paper, in a safe and gentle practice. Students are encouraged to wear black. Bring change of clothes and dark-colored towel to wipe/dry yourselves after the workshop.

Each Paint by Yoga Workshop is different. New painting techniques are added in every event. If you've attended one before and plans to participate on the next, you will be creating a totally different artwork. Collect and display your finished paintings to create a stunning personal gallery of yoga art.

We will supply non-toxic, washable paints and the rest of materials. All you need are your paint clothes, yoga mat, and you are ready to PAINT by YOGA! Best part, you get to take home your Paint by Yoga masterpiece.

Workshop fee includes all materials. Please pre-register before December 5th. ALL FITNESS LEVELS WELCOME. Artistic experience not required.
