” For two weeks I’ve arranged Balance Studio where artists could come any time during the day to relax, recharge and take some time to connect with their creativity. I prepared the room to fulfill the various needs depending on what feels good at that time, for example, it was possible to practice yoga, dance, stay in silence, write, meditate, drink tea, use some cards or create.
My motivation is to connect yoga and conscious development practices. I have a few years of work experience in different cultural and creative projects where I worked with artists, designers, creatives. My intention is to explore how these two worlds influence each other and what are the possibilities for balancing the creative work process. I would like to open possibilities for creatives to grow, bloom, and flow their potential through the channels of conscious and grounding practices.”
