ARTOGA is a fusion of art and yoga. 

We offer workshops that are fun and creative but also physically challenging and meditative. 

MEDITATIVE

Creative expression is meditative and we create an open space for you to find your own expression, even if unexpectedly and for the first time.

CREATIVE

Creativity is unlimited during our workshops and our instructors are trained to inspire and empower you - no matter what your prior knowledge and experience with painting is.

COMMUNITY

Join a yoga studio's community or delve deeper in your existing studio life. Workshops are formed to create a unique community and bonding experience.

CHALLENGING

Yoga poses are challenging  - and it's harder than you think to paint for a few minutes in one pose! Come prepared to burn muscles and get a workout! Spoiler alert: you don't have to bend like our friend Justin here for these workshops to be for you ;)

FUN

Workshops are fun and engaging. Be prepared to paint while in an awkward ab work-out pose... and also be ready to expect the unexpected!

ACCEPTING

We create and practice on an open and loving acceptance level: art work is creative for the sole purpose of being expressive and meditative, and the yoga practice brings you into your body and away from any criticisms. 

COME READY TO PRACTICE AND PAINT!

 

Watch our video!

We will provide you with your painting station and all the materials you need. Just bring yourselves and your mat. Mats can be rented from the studio hosting the workshop, depending on the studio's rental options.

Reservations must be made ahead of time. To sign up: pick your location and date

Come early to select your practice station, particularly if you're participating with a group of people.

 

We offer a variety of workshops. All welcome any creative experience level. Pick your favorite!

 


OUR BREAD & BUTTER- CLASSIC VINYASA PAINT

Our classic and most frequently offered class! Paint in between your vinyasa flow. Instruction will connect the elements you paint to the poses you hold whilst painting! You'll paint a predetermined picture at an elementary painting level. Both painting and yoga instruction provided in the class.

 
 
 
 
 

ACRO-ARTOGA

Come fly with DC Acro Yogis while you paint! This is a wonderful team building exercise! You'll share a canvas with your partner and support each other in poses where you can paint, creating something together.

 

PARTNER-ARTOGA

Not as daring as Acro Yoga, but still something you can make with your partner! You'll share a canvas and paint together as you help each other stretch and get into some comfortable binds and twists! 

 
 
 
 
 

 

VET-ARTOGA

Our Vet, Justin Blazejewski, frequently teaches yoga to Veterans. The movement therapy of yoga and creative art therapy of painting are wonderful ways to connect back into the body and release feelings from the mind. This workshop is meditative, gentle and accepting.
