Kids Yoga & Art: Mandala – LIVE ONLINE with Paula Celzo
Wednesdays & Fridays 3:45 – 4:45 pm (HST)
Starting April 15, 2020
Experience the art of drawing, painting, and movement of mandalas through vibrant colors and shapes. In each class, we will focus on one universal value (ex: cultivating gratitude, compassion, friendliness, etc). We’ll start class with a short sequence of sun salutations or Surya Namaskar, to give thanks and connect us to the sun. We will explore different yoga asanas (poses) and end class with a guided relaxation. We will learn about mandalas from all over the world and work with various drawing and painting techniques to create symmetrical works of art.
The word mandala is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning “circle.” Mandalas are found in different cultures and contain special and even spiritual symbols. As an art form, it is fun to introduce the mandala craft to children!
Mandalas are special circles that have unique meanings to each artist. Mandalas can have different colors, but they all have something in common: RADIAL SYMMETRY. Mandala art begins with a central point and all other lines/colors/symbols radiate out from that central place.
Taking yoga with Paula gives you a deep feeling of participating in something sacred and good for the soul, beyond just a healthy physical activity.
Paula started finding her Yogic path through the practice of asanas. In 2015, she encountered the “Bhagavad Gita” which led her to a deeper understanding of what Yoga truly is. Her lifestyle of study and practice incorporates: Vedic scriptures, kirtan, asanas, and meditation brought her to sharing her experience through teaching.
After completing her 200RYT at Rishikul Yogshala in Rishikesh, India, Paula took her 36hr Yoga Nidra teacher training with Mary Bastien, Jennifer Reuter and Brenda Kwon. She completed Restorative Yoga Level 1 Teacher Training with Chanti Tacoronte-Perez. All the while she continues to practice under the guidance of her primary teacher, Yogi Charu.
