Life drawing is about observing the human form and drawing the shapes it creates. Yogis throw some pretty awesome shapes that are both challenging and fun to draw. With the help of Illustrator, Kate Philipson you can draw (fully clothed) models striking amazing yoga poses.
Like yoga, drawing is a moving meditation. So whether you are a professional artist or haven’t picked up a pen in years, life drawing is a great way to relax and unlock creativity. The workshop will begin with a short yoga sequence to get your mind and body warmed up and ready to draw. After which, you’ll sit back with your sketchbook and let the yoga model do the work. Yoga Life Drawing is open to everyone - no yoga or artistic experience required. Places are limited, Yoga mats, props and art materials are provided, but you are welcome to bring along your own. And if you needed any more persuading…post yoga tea and treats will be provided!
Our yoga models come in all shapes and sizes, so each session will bring new challenges. They are also all experienced yoga teachers, so will give insight into the correct alignment of the postures you’ll be drawing.
December's yoga teacher and model is Yoke's (well London's really) much loved Alan Ellman. Alan has well over 500 hours of training in astanga and vinyasa flow, as well as an addition 120-hours Rocket teacher training with Amber Gean. Alan's personal practice is out of this world, but he brings it down to earth for his students - a perfect yogi to twist and bend for your artworks.
