A Workshop with Heather Eiden

Art & Asana with Heather Eiden

Fee: $25/$20 members
Registration: Registration is closed. For information on future sessions, sign up for our e-list.

Heather Eiden has been teaching yoga at Lynden since the beginning, and each year she considers new ways to combine her yoga practice, particularly meditation, and her art practice. This workshop is a meditation on art using the tools of asana (physical postures), mindful walking, drawing, and design. Each workshop will start with a vinyasa style yoga practice, mindful walking in the sculpture garden, and then time spent designing and painting a canvas the size of your yoga mat—a mat cover on which you can continue your yoga practice. The workshop will be offered twice, once in June and once in August, and you are welcome to sign up for one or both sessions.

Wear appropriate clothing and footwear (yoga socks, tai chi shoes, or something similar) for outdoor practice and art-making, and bring a mat for yoga. Classes move into the sun room in inclement weather.
