Meet your host...
Facilitated by International Yoga Teacher and Contemporary Artist, Nadia Insolia
Nadia believes much of the yoga and movement practice crosses over within the visual arts world. From the disciplines to the freedoms, both forms of expression allow the experience of presence and serenity, commitment and discovery.
Contemporary abstract art is a beautiful journey of learning to let go, time and time again, surrender. Abstract art allows us to be in a timelessness engaged state, without expectations.
Nadia's style is rhythmic, soulful and embodied with a whole lot of heart.
Through her movement practice you can expect juicy slow meaningful flows with a playful aproach to sequencing all with nurturing intention. Meditation and Pranayama is also key to each composition.
Her happy-go-lucky personality is reflected through her humbling down to earth teaching style, throughout the creative workshop this will be an open space for encouragement and support, eliminating all fear.
You are encouraged to cultivate presence in every moment and take note of each and every sensation.
Nadia strongly believes the practice of movement and creativity helps us understand the connection, and disconnection, between mind and body and keeps us children at heart.
Join her to discover your creativity!

A State of Flow
New dates coming soon....
Join us to enter a State of Flow and explore your creative potential. Unlock special moments to experience timelessness, where the ego is fully deflated, and you can become mesmerised by a sense of your own ecstasy, romanticising in the presence.
Throughout this workshop we will explore movement and meditation, journaling and artistic techniques to effortlessly spark creativity and finish through expressionistic abstract painting.
Creativity takes unbiased courage, it is not always 'easy' and expression can be daunting and confronting, not to mention life is spontaneous and unpredictable. This can cause us to retract and stay within our comfort zones, which affects us being able to reach our highest potential within our chosen form.
Studies show the flow state has been described as the most productive and creative state of mind in which to work. By learning how to enter the state of flow you can increase your productivity, be more creative, and be happier, all at the same time.
The flow state brings on a sense of serenity, and having no worries about oneself, having a feeling of growing beyond the boundaries and limitations we put on ourselves.
Together we will be sharing the elements of this movement and painting experience in a safe, supportive and creative environment where we cultivate openness and massage the nervous system into triggering the flow state.
