Connecting Breath to Creativity
Connecting Breath to Creativity, a practice of mindfulness in movement, will provide the participant with an awareness of how intentional breathing leads to a deeper level of focus. Central to this practice is acknowledgment of the creative energy generated by the body-mind-spirit interconnection. Various “postures” combined with rhythmic breathing and flowing movement helps establish calm, intensify concentration, and relieve stress.
Note: In addition to having a nearby water bottle, a sturdy, armless chair on which to sit and hold onto while standing, participants should wear comfortable, stretchable clothing.
