SA Moves: Wabi-Sabi Yoga Workshop
1859 Kingston Road
Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese word for a way of looking at the world which finds consolation and beauty in the unfinished and imperfect. It is a sensibility and aesthetic that accepts that things are always in process, dwells in possibility, and is in harmony with nature.
Yoga and wabi-sabi are most compatible in their view of impermanence and the principle of non-attachment. Cultivating non-attachment is a freeing exercise for artists, in learning to silence the inner critic, to "let go" and overcome perfectionism.
Through yoga, storytelling or guided meditation, and a post-yoga hands-on art activity, we can explore the meaning of wabi-sabi and how it is exemplified in art and nature.
