Yoga and photography in Tuscany
Being and Seeing in Tuscany
Yoga and Photography Workshop in Lucca, Italy
Saturday 3rd – Saturday 10th November 2012
This week long workshop in Lucca is a unique opportunity to unite ones passion for art, beauty, history, nature and yoga while staying in a noble villa in the heart of Tuscany. Vicki and Colomba will focus on providing participants time, space and guidance; for the internal work of exploring their inner landscape through the practice of yoga and for the external exploration of the world around them through the eye of a camera.
Each day will include a dynamic yoga practice in the morning followed by an instructive photo session and time spent behind the lens. Afternoons will be for self reflection and self study followed by a restorative yoga class and meditation.
Evenings, there will be an opportunity to share work, discuss work and receive feedback. Each person will leave with a good understanding of how to enhance the quality of their life and art with the practice of yoga as well a selection of photos for a Portfolio of their experience.
Colomba will facilitate photographic reproductions of each participant’s ”idea” of Tuscany through a creative exercise of self recognition.
To do so, there will be several outings to enable focussing on different sides of reality...food workshops and handcrafts visits, walking on the ancient Walls of Lucca and historical centre sightseeing, bird watching in Massaciuccoli Lake and Giacomo Puccini’s house Museum…
