The Therapy Called Art

Three years ago, I completed my 200-Hour Integrative Yoga Teacher Training. It was a milestone in the journey of reconnecting with myself. The long hours spent learning the beautiful, ancient philosophy; immersing ourselves in the profound wisdom of the teaching; and moving our body in unison for at least two hours every single day worked wonders in unblocking deep-seated emotions and energy.

Not only healing, the training unleashed parts of myself I did not even know existed, as one morning I woke up and felt a very strong desire to begin drawing – something I had not thought of doing for decades. So in 2017, I got myself a set of coloured pencils, watercolour, brushes, paper and sketch book. I did not know what I was doing. Maybe I still don’t know. It turned out to be one of the best investment I had ever made as working with colours and creating has been a truly therapeutic experience.
