Meditation Among Art Returns to GRACE Next Week

GRACEAfter a successful couple of winter sessions where the Greater Reston Arts Center introduced meditation in the midst of an art exhibit, GRACE and Beloved Yoga will team up for more.

“Contemplating Creativity,” for adults and teens takes place Wednesday, April 6 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at GRACE, 12001 Market St. at Reston Town Center.

From GRACE:

The contemplative practices in yoga that include simple movement, breath work and mental clarity offer space for creativity to expand.

Maryam Ovissi, GRACE board member and owner of Beloved Yoga Studios, will share insight into creativity, the concept of play, Lila, and how important it is for our meditation practice.

The evening will focus on exploring the importance of contemplative meditative practices for expanding creativity.

Come get inspired! If you are an artist, this workshop  will offer you new tools to approach your work and process – but all who are curious are welcome!

Ages 13 and up. Free for GRACE members. $5 donation for non-members.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy.
