We were at the Barbican last Saturday 8th October as part of their OpenFest day of culture, art and inspiration. Dani taught a magical, atmospheric class in the lakeside yurt, then there was a special OMMERSION in front of Zarah Hussain’s beautiful Numina installation. Thanks to all who came and supprted.
East of Eden will be at the OM Yoga Show at Alexandra Palace on October 21st, 22nd and 23rd 2016 offering you the chance to win 12 months free membership at East of Eden PLUS all the goodies below from Hey! Holla and Yoga Leggs.
We are delighted that Hannah Adamaszek will be exhibiting her work at East of Eden at the end of July. You’ll be able to see her pieces in reception and in Studio 2 and buy postcards of any images you like.
Hannah describers her work as follows:
“I want to bring together Art and Meditation to inspire and promote a feeling of zen. By merging these two creative mediums, we are taken on a welcome journey of peaceful reflection in our chaotic lives. Large paintings, drawings and prints delve into the calming depths of yogic poses, meditation and mindfulness, creating a focal point to awake and revive an inner peace.
I started practicing yoga around a year and a half ago, becoming more aware of the present in mind and body. For me its a chance to be tranquil, to clear my mind and just be. It is this part of yoga that I wanted to paint, to try and re-live and re-create on canvas. I want to bring the beauty of our souls to life, to give us the chance to delve into serenity and be thankful for life and the beauty within. I want to be able to inspire people to start their own journey into yoga through my art.
Each muse has her own light and strength and is at harmony with herself and the world that surrounds her. I love the idea that we grow just like nature, rising like a flower from the mud to bloom in ways that were unexpected Foliage often extends from the body, tracing paths that we can reach through continued practice. The poses have a beauty of their own, with the body moving with a delicate energy, flowing across the canvas.
The breath is something that has become an important part of my life through yoga. It is this cycle and repetition that I have used in my work through pattern and shape. I created an animation based upon the breath, its gradual lift and release repeating like a mantra.
I pair a single quote with each piece, to further explain its meaning and the thought process. Art is not just for viewing but an experience.”
We are really excited to announce that, following our successful equity crowdfunding investment round via Seedrs in September 2014, Studio2 will open on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd April. It’s right next door to the current studio space (reception and access will be through 14 Hatherley Mews as it is currently), and from 915am on 2nd April, all our yoga and mat Pilates classes will be in the new studio.
