Paint Your Practice This Weekend

This Saturday, Yogaworks Back Bay is hosting a “Paint Your Practice” workshop where yoga-goers, painters, and people who just love to have a messy-good-time can come together for one creative and inspiring afternoon. This unique class was born just four years ago. Local yoga teacher and painter Izzy VanHall brought the workshop to life starting with a small group of her peers and turned it into what it is today! Gaining an immense amount of recognition, last summer, athletic wear company Lululemon got wind of VanHall’s concept and sponsored the first official Paint Your Practice at Levitate Music Festival in Marshfield.

This is the second time that Paint Your Practice will take place at Yogaworks Back Bay. This past fall, the studio had 47 people attend the workshop. To make the event more personal this time around, VanHall is capping registration at 30. She wants this to be an intimate and accessible experience for those who don’t often take time to be artistic.

The class will start with a discussion of yoga philosophies and some spiritual connecting. After she introduces a repetitive yoga sequence, VanHall then adds paint into the process. Using hands and yoga poses, participants will apply paint to a large piece of canvas. At the end of the two-hour session, yogis can cut out a piece of the art and take it home as a reminder of their creativity and relaxation.

Though you won't get super messy, Yogaworks does suggest bringing a set of clothes to change into and wearing something you don’t mind getting a little paint on. Paint Your Practice is open to all levels and is $65 to attend. Sign up today for this exciting workshop and devour the details of an inspiring afternoon this Saturday, April 8 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Yogaworks Back Bay!
