Workshops & Training for Creative Individuals

Workshops & Training offerings for 2018 – 2019.

ASC Sponsored Workshops & Training


Self-Care for Artists

Date: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. April 25, 2019, ASC Boardroom (227 W. Trade St., Ste. 250, Charlotte, NC 28202).
Audience: Local creative individuals and entrepreneurs.
Cost: $10 per session.

This two-hour, self-care offering is dedicated to artists, creative entrepreneurs and others to find movement, breath, self-study and a community for accountability. Each session will focus on different topics like fear, self-doubt and tools for motivation.

The movement portion of the offering (the first hour) will be a gentle and accessible offering based in hatha yoga sequencing. No experience or special equipment is required and all levels of mobility are welcome. The movement is intended to loosen energy, open participants to speak their truth, actively listen to one another and hear the messages within themselves.

The second hour will be dedicated to answering carefully selected questions that will bring personal awareness to places for growth, better understanding of self and intentional creation. Facilitator: Kelley Carboni-Woods.
