Ritual Union Retreat
October 25 – 27
Sanctuary Hill, New Plymouth
Explore the union between movement, breath and creativity with stencil artist Flox and yoga instructor Kyleigh B on a three day retreat in the beautiful grounds of Sanctuary Hill.
How can we all use yoga and art to enrich and compliment our everyday lives? How do we create something balanced with the positive and negative attributes of a stencil when relating that back to yin and yang? What shapes begin to happen as a consequence?
On this retreat—the first of its kind—you are invited to consider through workshops in both stencil creation and yoga how the language of movement feeds and nourishes our body; and how our bodies and lives become richer when given freedom to create.
The catalyst for the Ritual Union Retreat began when artist Flox turned to yoga with Kyleigh B in 2018 as a way to refine and manage her health. Flox had physical challenges as the result of a heavy workload and the repetitive actions that her practice entailed.
Taking up yoga allowed Flox to both begin listening to the signs her body was giving her and, through discussions with Kyleigh B, reassessing her approach to her work. Both women noticed similarities between their practices and how the philosophies of stencil creation could be very much linked to the ideas behind movement in yoga.
With over forty years experience between them Flox and Kyleigh B are both passionate about their craft.
• Kyleigh B will lead you through yoga and breathing practices that are accessible to anyone at any level.
• Flox will teach you the fundamental skills of creating your own piece of art, using stencil cutting techniques and exploring the essence of the stencil – how to create, what to cut and what to leave behind?
The inspired result is: Space to create, Space to grow, Space to flow.
Only 10 spaces available.
Price includes food, accommodation, materials and goody bag. There will be no spray painting on this workshop.
