Creative Yoga Retreat UK

Ruth welcomes you to her Yoga Creative Retreats that she has created for you to unwind, rebalance and connect with the real you inside, so no matter whether you are new to yoga or practise regularly Ruth will adapt the yoga to suit you. She generally has a more vibrant uplifting morning class and a gentler, Yin and Restorative evening class. Again when it comes to art it really doesn’t matter if you aren’t confident with being creative or whether you are an artist, it is not about ‘being good at art' or 'no good'. The materials and tuition are there for you if you desire it and if you don’t thats fine!

Program

On this retreat, you will enjoy an inspiring, rejuvenating, and relaxing art and yoga holiday in Cornwall, England. The yoga sessions that include stretching, breathing, and meditation techniques can enhance your state of relaxation. These yoga sessions can help your creativity flow and bring feelings, emotions, and ideas forward which can help you to create a uniquely personal piece of art or sculpture that you can take home and enjoy forever.

On this retreat, Ruth Wheeler will work in a relaxed, expressive, and nurturing way to guide you through the processes of creating a beautiful soap stone sculpture or wood carving or using other techniques throughout the weekend. Your special time will be spent by sketching in Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden around St Ives and connecting with the landscape and the sea.

Moreover, you will also have a chance to join the creative workshops to study the Hepworth-inspired stone sculpture. You will learn how to use tools to carve away at the soft soap stones to create a small indoors sculpture or series of sculptures inspired by the Barbara Hepworth's works.
