Winter Workshops with Shadowpath

Winter Workshops with Shadowpath

If you stumble, make it part of the dance. Improvisation allows you to adapt and overcome!

This adult class is for those looking to develop confidence, creative-thinking and collaborative skills. Using improv exercises and games, participants will have fun while improving upon public speaking, communication and freeing imagination. AND it’s not just for laughs! These transferable skills can help you combat nerves, adjust to change, handle conflict and share opinions effectively, teaching you how to read a room and enhance the energy within it. Issac Asimov said, To succeed, planning alone is insufficient. One must improvise as well.

5pm - 6pm

Creativity, Core & More

Your core is your creativity centre. When it is strong your ability to activate your inner artist strengthens. A strong core supports you in everything you do. It boosts your mood and confidence and drives you closer to realizing you dreams and ideas. This 60 minute mat session will start with visualization and creative intention setting. This may include a project you’re working on or the ability to be more in-tune with your imagination. Through conscious breath work and slow, precise motion influenced by pilates, and yoga’s sacred second chakra (known as the sacral chakra), you will move yourself closer to inspired energy and emotion. Afterwards you will feel more powerfully connected to yourself and others.
