Yoga Meets Art at Noho Studios

By David Saunders, Health Editor | UPDATED: 08:28, 26 June 2020

Ahead of London Design Festival this month, join MoreYoga and artist Emily Ponsonby for Yoga and Life Drawing classes at the Noho Studio in Soho, for three special-edition, donation-based sessions from 8-11th September.

MoreYoga has teamed up with inspirational artist Emily Ponsonby, to celebrate the beauty and form of yoga by coupling it with the expressive nature of life-drawing. The MoreYoga classes will be delivered in Noho’s main gallery with 2 sessions including a life drawing class afterwards, run by Emily herself.

Of the collaboration, Emily Ponsonby says; My dream of entwining my South African paintings with the meditative flow of yoga has come true. MoreYoga and I will work together to create a space where bodies connect with their natural creativity and release it though movement and life drawing.

This will be a yoga studio like no other. My female nudes, light on their toes, will float above bending bodies transporting minds to the infectious energy that fills the skies above Table Mountain.”

The ideal space for artists and yogis alike to express themselves, Emily’s art will form the backdrop of these exclusive yoga classes and all attendees will be helping towards an incredible charitable cause in the process. All profits for the events will be going towards Emily’s chosen charity partner, Seva Unite. The charity group teaches yoga in Pollsmoor Prison in South Africa as a special rehabilitative and meditative practice for the inmates.

Emily Ponsonby continues; “Yoga became a large part of my life and my work stemmed from it. By consciously connecting with every inch of my body I feel grounded, present, alive and a far more intuitive artist. It really is a collaboration of dreams.”
