Breathe, Create, Nourish, Watercolor Journaling and Yoga Workshop, Vinyard Shipyard, Milford DE
The air in the early morning was still slightly cool with a nice breeze coming off the river that shone like glass. Gwen and I prepared the lawn and the porch, setting up chairs for her Yoga class and arranging things for my Watercolor Journaling. Everyone showed up on time and we wove the Yoga into Journaling, with lunch from Abbott's Grill topping off the day.
At the end, everyone shared what they had done and went away happy and full. Filled with creativity and nourishment - from the gently yoga poses that stretched the body and quieted the mind, to the watercolor journaling that absorbed the mind and touched the heart, to the very ample lunch that stimulated our taste buds and filled our hungry tummies. (sorry, no photos of the lunch - I guess we were all too hungry to take photos! Abbott's Grill created a delightfully yummy spinach wrap with chicken salad and a scrumptious chocolate chip cookie!)
We started the day with Yoga and a nice breeze off the River
Then, on the porch, Introductions all around - think I had a Yoga "buzz" on!
