Vinyasa Flow Yoga with Mel Lowe
followed by life drawing class with artist Emily Ponsonby
Following the success of our sessions at Noho gallery earlier this year, MoreYoga has again teamed up with inspirational artist Emily Ponsonby, to celebrate the beauty and form of yoga by coupling it with the expressive nature of life-drawing.
Of the collaboration, Emily Ponsonby says; “MoreYoga and I will work together to create a space where bodies connect with their natural creativity and release it though movement and life drawing. Yoga became a large part of my life and my work stemmed from it. By consciously connecting with every inch of my body I feel grounded, present, alive and a far more intuitive artist. It really is a collaboration of dreams.”
About Emily Ponsonby
Emily Ponsonby is an English artist. She seeks to capture the natural, the organic and the Nude – on panel, paper and in clay. Chasing winter around the world, she is currently revelling in the colours, light and energy of Cape Town.
For the last 8 years Emily has developed a technique based upon the ‘encaustic’ process of the Ancient Egyptians, melting honeyed beeswax between layers of oil. But on arrival in South Africa, it was the vibrancy of the soil that she couldn’t ignore. Orange, ochre, grey, red and brown… binding them with egg yolk, they swirled into a river of skin-like tones. Her studio is fast turned into a home for honeybees and earthworms… what great company!
