Yoga Filming and Photography

 


We have had some Yoga filming and photography sessions in the past few weeks, thanks to Alex and his camera.

It's been very hot, but we found some shady spots around Treetops and have made 3 new Online Yoga Workshops which will be going on the website soon and available to buy.

There is a Summer Yoga, which is going to join our Spring and Autumn ones



And Seated Yoga, which is a shorter workshop, all done from a chair, really good for stretching and calming.



And lastly Yoga for Fatigue, Stress & Burnout

This is amazing, I did the workshop whilst editing, it was incredibly gentle and relaxing, I felt amazing afterwards, it provided me with an all over stretch and calmness.

Rachel has personal experience with this and qualified several years ago to teach this.  It's perfect as an Online Workshop, especially if you are too poorly or fatigued to make it out to a class, this is gentle effort, but oh so good.



We then invited a few brave souls who wouldn't mind being photographed to join us for an Aromayoga evening, so Alex could get some photographs for Rachel and I to use in our marketing.  He tiptoed around (in his festive socks?!) and managed to get some great shots, that you will see over the upcoming months if you follow us on our social channels.





We have some spaces available on our September AromaYoga class


If you need any filming or photography for your business please contact Alex via instragram @alexstoreyfilm or if you don't have access to instragram just email me at Treetops

Sunsets Watercolour - St Michael's Mount


Last week we had a great group in to paint Watercolour Sunsets.

Claire had chosen St Michael's Mount in Cornwall as the image.

After the drawing, everyone mixed up their paints before laying out their washes.


The finished paintings were full of glow and atmosphere










We had a delicious lunch of Fish & Fennel Stew served with home made sourdough bread and some summer fruit sundaes to finish.


It was a Bucks-Fizz celebratory lunch as it was Claire's birthday the following day and there were some beautifully painted cards given ...




I managed to get a photo of everyone with Claire before they went home.


Thank you everyone for coming, it was a great day.

Claire is now off to Marlborough College Summer School to teach for 4 weeks, classes will resume in October.

If you need any summer Art Materials don't forget to have a look in our Online Shop.  We have a Summer Sketch Kit Offer available at the moment.

Our popular Online Watercolour Workshops are also available, just £27 each, treat yourself to one for the summer and let me know what you think.

Poppies Watercolour


A bright and beautiful day yesterday as we painted Poppies in Watercolour with Claire.

There were plenty of poppy photographs to choose from, so everyone could choose their own composition and sketch it out with pencil, ensuring that one of the poppies was the star of the painting.


Using masking fluid the artists outlined the poppies and coloured in their seed heads.

Followed by a really bright first wash full of colour, with dashes of red to be out of focus poppies in the background.


Claire teaches in a step by step style and due to our small groups you receive plenty of attention and support with your painting.


We stopped for lunch and wine, today the menu was cajun chicken with a mexican quinoa salad, served with slow roasted tomato, olives and pine nuts.


Here are some of the beautiful paintings of Poppies ...






The two ladies below were beginners and new to Treetops, look at their amazing paintings, absolutely brilliant!



Thank you to everyone for coming, it was a lovely lovely day.
