Process Painting & Somatic Movement


Lydia Marshall, Founder of Art for Life

Jean Hindle, Founder of Soma Yoga & Dance Studio


Saturday and Sunday November 12 & 13 2022  9:30am - 4:30pm
Cost: $295.00   all supplies included!    email if interested in a spot, limited to six.


These are semi-private workshops limited to 6 to provide much space in between students and lots of fresh air moving through the studio.
Vaccination required.   

Free up habituated patterns in creative process, mind and motion through Process Painting and somatic movement.

Process painting is disarmingly simple, requiring no previous art training and using basic tools: brushes, paper and high quality poster paint.
The process invites you to listen, to become deeply present to your own inner urgings, and to respect and explore what arises on the paper.
It gives you the opportunity to encounter your imagination and the energy embodied in your unique creative expression. 

Creating without expectations or a plan nurtures your most fundamental self.
With gentle facilitation, you can practice befriending
your inner critic or unwinding a limiting story to move beyond familiar stumbling blocks.
We paint in silence, in a safely held environment, without discussion or comparison. 


We will begin the mornings and take afternoon breaks with somatic movement & meditation to settle the monkey mind & reawaken inherent agility.

This weekend is open to all.  It will support all those who create in any way, including artists, writers, educators, dancers, therapists,
those in the healing arts, architects and anyone who longs to find their way back to their creative home.


Jean Hindle has been a somatic movement educator, Soma Yoga & meditation teacher and dancer in Seattle for 28 years.
She is the founder of Soma Yoga and Soma Yoga & Dance Studio.  


Lydia Marshall has been practicing process painting for 15 years and facilitating workshops and online painting sessions for 8 years. She completed her three-year apprenticeship in facilitation with Stewart Cubley of The Painting Experience in 2016, and subsequently founded Art for Life. www.lydiamarshall.com

Somatic Self Care Intensives
Discover the amazing capacity of your nervous system for somatic releasing, resourcing and re-education.  
Somatic Movement Education re-awakens our inherent agility and expands our possibilities for moving effortlessly in all we do.
Chronic tension patterns change as the body regains its innate ability to self-correct to ease and efficiency (neuromuscular re-patterning).
Change the way you move, change the way you live.
These movement awareness practices invite quiet mind, a deep unwinding and endless discovery.

This work draws from Somatic Unwinding, Hanna Somatics, the teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique,
Skinner Releasing, Open Source Forms, Embodied Anatomy, BrainDance developmental movement patterns
and my twenty eight years as a somatic movement educator, dancer, yoga & meditation teacher.
