The YogART Way: Is an innovative tool for transformation and well being.
At the heart of all of our healing arts (YogART) programming is a sense of empowering each individual to regain a sense of harmony, reverence, and balance, to awaken inner resources for healing and creativity.
YogArt integrates and uses Art as a form of Yoga -aligning, mind, body, and spirit-connecting culture and connecting culture and beauty through Art.- Mike Grady
The YogART Way is a new language of transformation. It is holistic modality which weaves various transformative practices, such as breath, meditation, creative visualization, art making, yoga, movement,creative writing, coaching,and witnessing into one experience. When we breakdown the etymology of YogART, the very word “yoga” makes reference to this. The root, “yuj” (meaning “unity” or “yoke”), indicates that the purpose of yoga is to unite ourselves with our highest nature. “Art” expressive art in our definition, encourages people to express and understand emotions through artistic expression, witnessing, and the creative process. Transformative Art leads us to deeply examine our own creative work and to discover our own inner sources of creative power for our own interpersonal alchemic growth.
In its essence YogART is an action verb, that seeks to reintegrate one with their highest Self, through the healing processes of Art and inner work. We at Art 4 All People feel that the “resoulution” to many human problems will come only when we discover within ourselves that for which all of mankind is searching–inner peace, tranquility, love, creativity, empowerment, and wisdom. This attainment is the goal of YogART, for YogART through its transformative and experiential processes is intended to help human beings become aware and connect with their ultimate creative nature.
In each Transformative experience, we weave together a multitude of contemplative practices to consciously awaken your Non Domestic, Wild ~ Creative Self. Evoking the Muse. We begin and end every practice with a honoring of the divine light of the Artist and Healer within. Join Ceylan Hulya MA & Lisa Rasmussen MFA, the Muse’s both have their Masters in Transformative Art and are Professional Artists.

This is your empowered state. It is the Wave of Being, its’ your ultimate Freedom. Your Art, your yoking, your YogART is the most unique, beautiful expression of you and only you. You are a Star!
“Art really has its source in the transcendent, the unmanifest field of pure consciousness, which is the non-changing, immortal field of all possibilities…When the awareness of the artist is in tune with this center of infinite creativity, his piece of art breathes fullness of life, nourishes the creator, the artist, and inspires his admirers with waves of bliss.” -Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
