Colour mixing exercises followed by a landscape painting.
“I haven’t got the right green.”, “I can’t mix the right green.”, or “This green is unnatural.”, are frequent comments I hear at landscape sessions. This workshop will help you to use primary colours to mix the greens you need and also how to tame some of the fiercer greens in your box to create really useful natural looking greens by mixing with other colours.
Reference supplied or bring your own. Some watercolour paper will be available at cost.

This class is particularly suited to beginners, those returning to yoga having had a break, those with specific injuries or conditions or even those that consider themselves to be of a ‘certain age’ that might need a less challenging approach. We will cover general breathing practises, the basic and gentler postures, together with general information and possible discussion around movement and the potential difficulties we might come up against.
The aim will be to relax and enjoy.
The yoga I teach is an evolution of nearly 30 years of practice and study, with a broad experience of many styles and teachers. In recent years I have been moving away from ‘external’ evaluation of the postures and moving towards an ‘internal’ sense of the postures, moving away from the more used traditional approach of systemised yoga to a more experiential and ‘felt’ approach, influenced by teachers who have been inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli.
Please bring a blanket, a yoga / Pilates mat, and wear loose comfortable clothing
