This painting, which was created before a live studio yoga audience, has been generously donated by the artist himself. It’s auction, which will start this evening on eBay, will raise money for Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket, the non-profit beneficiaries of our recent Electric Love Yoga, Music and Art event at the Dreamland.

About the painting: The Urban contemporary style of Craig Anthony Miller has shed another view on the popular deity Lord Ganesh (aka Ganapati). In the past four years, Ganapati: the remover of obstacles and the great lord of success, has become a staple in CAMs paintings. Originally becoming intrigued with the deity after a friends introduction. Out of the many Deities, CAMs connection to Lord Ganesh has become the one image that he still attached to.

Medium: Mixed media, tribal graphic that takes on the inspiration of stained glass. CAM has been painting the image of Lord Ganesh since 2007. It has become a signature of his Brooklyn studio and he has been commissioned numerous times to create the image for personal meditation spaces.

Dimensions: 55″ x 38″ on wood.

Bidding starts at $500 and will commence this evening at 7pm.

About CAM: The art of Brooklyn native, Craig Anthony Miller aka “CAM”, is an exploratory process, mapping shapes into images that repetitively convey messages of strength triumphing over despair. Initially influenced by stained glass art and the street art and graffiti dominating NY’s boroughs, CAM employs his graphic training to create work that explores far, distant lands and tribal warriors stealthily transplanted into layered urban landscapes. For years the ongoing theme known as the “Warrior Within” has since morphed into the popular Hindu Deity, Lord Ganesh, a now major symbolic form of CAM’s work. CAM’s latest incantation of “Be Mindful of Your Ability to Fly” and the term “A Single Dove,” has segued into a new path of “yogic” warriors and the reintroduction of figurative painting in an ever growing popular Yoga community within an urban context. The simple and complex construction of the body is more expressionism over the association /connection to body, mind and spirit.

CAM also has an Etsy store, where you can purchase very cool t-shirts and prints.

By the way, if you missed Electric Love, DJ Pete Ahern’s set is live on Soundcloud. You can download it for free and spread the love with a share or several. Take a listen.

~May all beings be happy and free

Love,

Caitlin

ELECTRIC LOVE YOGA, MUSIC & ART CHARITY EVENT
A BENEFIT FOR PALLIATIVE & SUPPORTIVE CARE OF NANTUCKET

Nantucket, MA – Yoga teacher Caitlin Marcoux, local DJ Pete Ahern, Brooklyn artist Craig Anthony Miller and special guest Clay Twombly team up to offer Nantucket yoga students an evening of visual and auditory inspiration sponsored by the Dreamland Film & Performing Arts Center and Verde Nantucket Green Build.

This 2 hour yoga and meditation practice will feature live music by Ahern and virtual streaming of impromptu graffiti art created by Miller specifically for the event.

Marcoux, who was diagnosed with breast cancer last March, is extremely excited to give back in this way to PASCON, where she has attended monthly cancer support groups and individual counseling. All four artists have been effected by cancer and feel passionately about supporting organizations such as PASCON who work tirelessly to care for those in need. Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket is a specialized health care program dedicated to providing excellent physical, psychological, social, and spiritual care for persons with life-threatening illness and their families.

This yoga practice will be mixed-level. All yogis, regardless of number of years practicing, are encouraged to participate. Please bring your own yoga mats and props.

Yoga and Live Music Benefit for Caitlin Marcoux: April 25th, 2013

So, as I’ve said before, I’ve got breast cancer. Yikes. It’s a little scary… It certainly wasn’t part of my plan, but for whom would it be? Still, I can’t think of a better place to have the big BC, and I’m super blessed that I have such incredible support. I hope you will join us for this event – which was scheduled in the time before cancer, but is now a BENEFIT…for me (weird)! I’m going to do my best to teach as much as possible, but because I’m scheduled for chemo that day, I’ll have some support staff on hand to pinch hit, should I need the help.

Here’s the original class description:

Caitlin teams once again with locally renowned DJ Pete Ahern of Audio Architects, and special guest Floyd Kellogg to bring you a blissful, electrifying vinyasa flow class. Peter and Caitlin grew up together on the island, and shouldered the triumphs and challenges of Nantucket High School, small town life, and the unique experience of living 30 miles out to sea. Now all grown up, Caitlin & Peter both enjoy Island living once again; each with a 3-year old son (Griffin & Jocob) only two weeks apart in age.

In this, their third collaborative effort, they will invite you to celebrate your Nantucket Roots – whether you’ve had them for 100 years or 5 and explore your connection to your local community through movement and music.  What better location to do this than heart of downtown Nantucket, in the  reinvented space at The Dreamland Film & Performing Arts Center.

Students will be encouraged to go deeper into themselves by way of a silky smooth vinyasa flow practice as DJ Pete lays down  the deep ambient, electronic, DnB grooves to raise up your vibration. Don’t miss this chance to practice with live accompaniment and dig in deep.

With Special Guests, Floyd Kellogg of You Scream I Scream, and Shannah Green, Director of The Yoga Room.

All proceeds will benefit Caitlin and her family in their fight against breast cancer.

Students will be encouraged to let it all out, celebrate music and movement, and go deeper into themselves. Pete will lay down  the deep ambient, electronic, DnB grooves to raise up your vibration while Cait will help you shed your inhibitions through a flowing vinyasa practice, where anything goes.

Yoga Meets Live DJ

There are many tools on the yogic path to aid and assist us in connecting to our true nature. From following the intuitive guidance of our heart to transforming and purifying the physical body through the practice of asana, these practices help us reveal the boundless potential and beauty that lie within and around us.

Nada yoga, the yoga of sound, is a powerful tool that we can utilize in this journey of expanding and deepening our awareness. It can help us to break through to feeling the inner wellspring of creativity and life force that we can often lose touch with throughout our day to day activities. The yogis were aware of the power of sound, long ago and used various instruments to produce tones that enhance their mediation and consciousness exploration.

Music, like everything on our planet is constantly evolving and finding new ways to express itself. With the number of genres and sub-genres that exist today, there are virtually limitless options for us to flavor our lives with. Our experience on the yoga mat can be deeply nourished with this ever expanding palette of sound. Like a collage artist combines images, a DJ weaves songs together, to create a larger experience. Combining the power of asana with the sonic tapestry created by a DJ, opens the door to a unique yogic journey.

We are currently holding 5 spots for students who have yet to pay. Please email me if you would like to be added to the WAIT LIST. I will open these spots up in the next couple of days if payments have not been collected. Please email me at caitlin@caitlinmarcoux.net
