People turn to Yoga for many reasons. To relieve stress, gain flexibility, heal the body, or perhaps to improve their energy. You can use Yoga for all these purposes but apart from the purely physical effects Yoga is also designed to help you create a unique inner journey of self-development and growth.
Allow the Divine Within to come through you. The intuitive art I teach comes from deep within your soul, allowing you to access the inspiration and beauty within. When we let go of the rational mind, the inner critic, and allow ourselves to be guided by a deeper force we can create wondrous artworks of beauty. Even if you feel you have no artistic ability you can experience the freeing effect of delving into intuitive art with gentle guidance and support as well as practical help throughout the Divine Within process.
We all need someone to help or listen to us at some stage in our life. Compassionate, non-judgmental counselling, art therapy, (using techniques to help release your emotions & feelings—if you can draw a line you can do art therapy, no need to be an artist!) or life coaching are available to help you resolve personal conflicts & emotional issues. Your concern may be to do with stress around relationships, family, marriage/partner, life path, anxiety, depression, self-development, abuse, etc.
