Yoga + Creativity Workshop

Please note this workshop will be rescheduled to a later date once we’re able to safely practice together again.  Please stay tuned.  


Yoga and Creativity Workshop for girls 

 Join Jessica and Amber for an afternoon of movement, exploration, creativity and art journaling.

This workshop is suitable for girls ages 8 to 13.  We’ll start our journey together with a mindfulness based breath practice.   Amber will then guide you through an accessible flowing yoga practice with the intention to release stress and explore your body and emotions through movement.  When we give ourselves permission to move and feel better in our bodies, we also feel better in our minds and creativity starts to naturally flow through us.  We’ll spend some time focusing our intentions.  Jessica will facilitate the artistic exploration of our afternoon together.  She’ll share techniques and ideas for creating journal pages, explore creative ways of self-expression, support you to play with colour, shape, words, pictures and mixed materials.

Each participant will leave with their own art journal to take home.

No artistic ability is required, just an openness to free your own innate creative expression.

When:  TBA

Time:  1:00 – 3:00 pm

Where:  Our studio located at 14 Mill Street, in the Heritage Court

Cost:  $45 (HST inclusive)

Bio pictureJessica Hibberd is an Almonte based artist who has been creating art ever since she can remember. Originally from the West coast of Canada, she rekindled her passion for art in 2012 while travelling back to the Pacific Ocean. It was there that her abstract style found its beginnings on a floating fishing lodge off the coast of Vancouver Island, inspired by the whales and peacefulness of the sea. Jessica has received a BA in Psychology from Carleton University, taught high school in Southern Thailand, volunteered at the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre and has experience as a classroom assistant at an Ottawa based Montessori school. She currently works for the Government of Canada and lives in the artistic community of Almonte.
