Military in the Arts Initiative

Yoga for Creativity, is an element of the Workhouse Military in the Arts Initiative (WMAI), Artistic Innovation program in Lorton, VA.

At the heart of the WMAI mission is the desire to help improve the quality of life for military service members and their families. WMAI provides experiences through therapeutic movement and art. It’s all FREE to service members and veterans, their families, and caregivers. Take your art home with you.

Quiet the thinking mind and awaken your intuition in Yoga for Creativity. Artistic expression can be fulfilling, but creativity may not come easy. You find it in presence. Step away from daily distractions and scattered thoughts and step onto your mat to find inspiration.

After yoga, step off the mat with a newly inspired focus ready to dive in and extend the creative process! Discover your inner artist. Create, release, and innovate your Artistic Expression.

Every other Saturday, 2-5 PM at the Workhouse Arts Center, Art of Movement Building, bldg 11

Summer Series

Summer has it’s own personality. It is longer days with bright sun and heat and yet another season of transformation. The light and heat starts to dry things out, but there is still growth and mobility.

Fall Series

Fall is a time to transition. We can see it in the trees and shrubs. The temperature drops and the winds change. We sense a slowing down that can be accompanied by a sense of emptiness and exposure. It is also a time filled with possibility and a time to settle in and connect with our senses.

Winter Series

Winter brings a natural withdrawing. It is a time of dormancy and a season of slumber. Often characterized by stillness, it is a time to redirect our energies from the fast-paced mobility of the summer and fall to rest, reflection, and redirection.

Spring Series

The snow and ice of winter is melting and the weather is warming. The ground still feels heavy and moist, but spring is near. Plants are growing and our bodies naturally long for a fresh, clean start to life. It is time to emerge from the winter’s slumber and lighten up to experience joy and inspiration.
