We are all born with the potential to create, to repurpose, to imagine, to see beyond what is visible and to hear what is inside the silence or the sounds of nature. So strong is this inherent virtue that creativity may even try to find its voice in our sleeping hours, through dreams, if we fail to give it due time in our waking hours. Even so, creativity can’t be forced; only allowed....Tina compassionately guided our class through the process.

This is a creativity meditation, an example of a meditation that accompanies each mediation or collage class. This meditation is to allow you to slow down, and to begin the process of connecting to your inner creativity.

I did the collage after an intense week at a spiritual retreat. My completed collage revealed a new perspective on where I was and what I wanted from this new place. The materials that Tina provided were so beautifully amazing for creating the vision of my life.  Tina makes it safe to dive in and see what wants to be revealed. If you are ready for a loving, transformation then come to one of Tina’s collage workshops.

My journey with Tina has been wonderful, transformational. With a pure and caring approach to teaching yoga, Tina incorporates all mind, body and soul principles into her classes. She creates a calm and supportive environment ensuring that your confidence is developed. She never rushes or pushes. She clearly loves yoga and teaching it!

I love the collage process and have seen how with gentleness and ease, so much awareness, joy, and creativity can be woven together. Each collage gathering includes a relaxation meditation to allow you to go deeper into your heart and allow for images and integration to occur, and this beautiful process naturally shows itself onto paper as collage images are gathered, positioned and glued together. Yoga includes the science of breath and sound to connect synapses to the brain and increase glandular health, which brings you more fully into your body and into mental clarity, increasing intuition. The combination is phenomenal for creativity and in being more present in the moment, in your creativity, and in your life.

Who am I?

My name is Tina Karagulian, and for over 30 years I have facilitated collage and visioning gatherings that assist others to access, express, and integrate the inner creative sparks in their lives. I am also a Kundalini Yoga Instructor, offering a scientific yoga technology that empowers individuals to be more focused in mind, body, and spirit, enabling them to achieve their creative goals with increased precision and intuition. I create safe and welcoming spaces to access inner creativity and wisdom— strengthening individuals, groups, corporations, and communities.


Tina is such a pure-hearted soul who serves from the heart. Her ART is devastatingly beautiful and healing. She is a yogini extraordinaire with gong included. Her art and healing offerings are filled with peace, love, acceptance and light. I highly recommend her in all ways.

What do participants receive from my classes?

·      COMMUNITY: through the multiplier effect, an expanded and enhanced supportive group dynamic is created. 

·      MEDITATION: an opportunity to slow down, go inward, and create the necessary space to hear our own creative wisdom.

·      COLLAGE & POETRY WRITING: gather and ground our inner creative wisdom into form, through images, writing, and assembly.

·      SHARING: By speaking aloud life-giving experiences in this process, participants feel heard, empowered, and integrated. 

·      YOGA: through the use of sound (chant, music, and instrumentation), breath, and Kundalini Yoga movement, participants more deeply ground their creative experiences within body, mind, and spirit.


Deeper Levels of Integration

Whether you are a writer, artist, team member, or project manager, exploring these creative channels opens and supports you in your own creative endeavors, and opens blocked creative processes.

  • Inspiring new areas of creativity.
    C
    ollage or visioning with images that are already created frees participants to assemble, draw connections, and integrate in new ways.

  • Opening blocked creativity.
    Through guided meditation, I create safe and welcoming spaces to meet challenging moments with grace, compassion, and presence, as our creative sparks come alive again.

  • Empowering through verbal expression.
    When
    sharing inner guidance and intuition in groups that are open to transformation, both sides of the brain balance and supportive empowerment naturally occurs, for both individuals and groups.

  • Grounding creative experiences.
    The comprehensive and scientific technology of Kundalini Yoga
    brings balance to the nervous system, stimulates the pituitary gland as it increases intuition, and increases oxygen in the body. Decision-making is increased, a centered sense of well-being deepens, and creativity is grounded as a way of life.
