Artist & Art TutorMy name is Sharòn Cohen & I am a Fine Artist, based in Hertfordshire. I have been exhibiting & selling my artwork for almost 20 years. My abstract and organic style celebrates the beauty, the flow and expressive qualities of lines, shapes and colour. I work in oils & watercolours, in a variety of sizes. My artwork is deeply heartfelf & particularly inspired by my Self as Woman, Artist, Yogini, Wife & Mother, Life & Love, guided now very much by my yoga practice & its philosophies. I was also a private Art Tutor, having taught for almost 20 years. I ran a school Art Department before deciding to pursue my private teaching for all ages, on a one to one basis, running groups, workshops, after-school art clubs & children's art parties. I focused on the benefits of being creative & provided students with a much-needed retreat from busy everyday lives.
Yoga Teacher I have been practising Yoga for over 20 years & graduated as a Yoga Teacher from the Bushey School of Yoga (200 hours). Yoga can be truly wonderful. Its restorative nature provides a calming space in which to feel peaceful & to reconnect with your beautiful Self, physically, emotionally & spiritually. Learning to listen to guidance, but most importantly to your own body as it presents in each precious moment, with honesty, compassion & respect. No forcing or striving. Yoga is a process of self-enquiry, a choice to discover more about how you feel, greater awareness of your breath & a deeper understanding of yoga philosophy. Taking time to gradually develop flexibility & strength & stillness & steadiness, within both the mind & body. To become more self-confident in your practice, on & potentially off the mat!(Member of the Independent Yoga Network IYN) Santosha means Contentment which I hope you feel when you view my paintings or experience my Art or Yoga Teaching.
