What is Art and Asana?
Art (vision board / collage) + Asana (sanskrit word for yoga posture) = Art & Asana!
The event begins with a centering yoga practice to help guests find focus and think about life goals. Then, the yoga instructor will move into craft instruction, starting with a journaling exercise and then explaining the options for different types of vision boards. Not normally the crafty type? That’s totally okay, read on to see if this event is a fit for you!
Who is this event for?
- If you love manifestation and are ready to create your ultimate 2023 vision board, this is the event for you!
- If you are interested in yoga and like craft projects, this event is also for you!
- If you are looking to meet like-minded people, move your body, and create something in a positive environment, this event is for you!
- If you don’t usually craft but this sounds interesting and fun and you don’t have plans that night, this event is for you too!
Not feeling ready to dive into the deep end of vision boarding? That’s okay too! There will be plenty of inspiration to kickstart your creativity and get you collaging in no time. Feel free to create a vision board collage or a collage of a skier with a cat’s head making cookies! Overall, the goal of this event is to have a fun experience in Keystone with likeminded folks.
