    Yoga and Meditation for Performers

    Kundalini Yoga as taught is a lineage that draws heavily from Sikh tradition, incorporates all 8 limbs of traditional yoga, and focuses on raising the energy of awareness. We practice in a way that removes limitations, and develops the ability to think creatively and in line with your intuitions.

    Dharam Prakash Singh (Justin Fill) is a certified instructor of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Given his spiritual name seven years ago, he has incorporated the technology into his performances and movement based teaching since beginning the practice. He currently leads classes at Kundalini Yoga in the Loop in downtown Chicago.

    Our class will focus on freeing the flow of creative energy through Kriya - a series of exercises designed to activate and synergize the body and mind, specifically the glandular system. Kriya is followed by Deep Relaxation and Meditation. Bring a bottle of water. We will have a few mats available, but feel free to bring your own.

    All levels and genders welcome.

    Writing and Moving - A Healing Practice

    Writing is a practice many of us learn in school along with a strict structure and slew of rules that must be followed -- but writing has the potential to be a creative, healing experience and so much more! Writing has the unique ability to connect the unconscious with the conscious, helping us to process life events, discover answers, encapsulate memories, and tell our stories.

    In this workshop, we will pair writing with body-awareness practices such as qi gong, meditation, and meridian stretches. Participants will be encouraged to make use of the openness, introspection, and mindfulness these practices foster, rather than rules and structure, in their writing. We will offer prompts and time to write, allowing participants to explore the self and the wisdom hidden within.

    Serious Doodles: Graphic Documentation

    Graphic documentation is a process of illustrative note-taking. Learn how to illustrate, emphasize, and organize your notes with graphics, colors, and writing styles—think doodling on steroids. Participants will learn through case studies, start a visual vocabulary, and practice graphic documentation in class. If you are a doodler, a visual learner, or just plain like markers, this workshop is for you.

    Guiding Your Process: Facilitation Techniques

    Decision-making, whether in groups or individual, can be a stressful process. Facilitation, the practice of guiding a meeting or process, can have a positive impact. This workshop will explore facilitation techniques that you can apply to meetings, collaborations, or individual pursuits. Midge will describe ways to effectively break down steps, keep moving towards a goal, address contentious opinions (others or your own), and break through roadblocks.

    Arm Knitting

    Super chunky knits are the rage. Did you can know you can make them without any equipment—just your arms? In this class, we'll use chunky yarn and learn arm knitting. If traditional knitting interests you but has seemed challenging, this class is a great way to understand how knitted fabric works. You'll also go home with a new scarf or cowl, completed during class!

    Storytelling

    Storytelling isn't just for aspiring writers! The elements of the best stories are applicable to many makers, whether you're branding yourself or your artwork, networking with buyers or other makers, or working through a piece. In the first portion of this workshop, we'll review some examples of stories from podcasts, short stories, and movies and break down the elements that make them effective. In the remainder of class, we'll retell stories through a series of interactive exercises. Note: some movement exercises will be incorporated in the class—wear clothing you’d be comfortable wearing for a rigorous game of charades.
