Embracing Art as a Tool for Self discovery

The Integral Art Method combines physical and emotional self-awareness techniques with the appreciation and creation of art. It can be used as a tool for youth and adults alike to connect with and align our senses, fully experience the work of other artists and tap into our inner consciousness to create our own manifestations of self expression.

How much more we can expand our consciousness to embrace all the other human beings? Finding the way to discover the interconnection among people through yoga, art and creativity is the path of Integral Art. I am passionate about unlocking the potential of each person, for a better life, for a better world. Let’s make it together!”

Personal experiences from Integral Art activities and classes...
  • A doctor suggested to me to practice some physical exercise to supplement my treatment for my spinal problems, and I casually chose yoga. However, it was the best choice I ever made. I was very lucky to meet Violante my first time. She is an exemplary teacher in guiding the practice and her corrections and adjustments are with total understanding and care. Violante has a patience and attention that inspires a calm yet strong attitude towards the practice; something I didn't find with other teachers.

  • My experience practicing yoga with Violante has given me a greater understanding of the relationship between the mind and body, and how yoga can help the two to harmonize. It is in this way that practicing with Violante has also helped me gain a better understanding of my sense of self—my relationship to my own body and its energy, and my interaction with the energies of others around me. I was always challenged, both physically and spiritually, when I practiced with Violante, and I always came away with something new that I had learned through that challenge, and thus, something new that I had learned about myself. My time practicing with Violante has not only made yoga a valuable and necessary part of my life, but it has also left me with a great friend.
  • ... so when she invited me for two days trekking+Yoga on Prato’s Mountain paths I was so excited to be part of such a “movement”. For me it was a good chance to “come back on track” after a bad period of my life during which I was forced to stop sport and outdoor activities. Violante is a spring, a source of energy, mindfulness, an inspiration so I was sure to live a grateful experience. . .And it has been . . .I met all the other mates for the first time that morning, the only person I knew was Violante, but soon I understood and felt the good feeling between us, we were there surrounded by a beautiful “winter mood” Wood with higher tracks covered by last season snow, we were there surrounded by ourselves, each one with a different personality, a different mood, maybe a different reason why but at least mates. Mates for two days sharing steps, laughs, games to play and songs to sing, Yoga sessions and meditations moments. It has been a short but powerful trip with a common and shared intent, let our inner light comes out and shines on us. Thanks Violante.

  • Dear Violante, thank you for introducing me to ashtanga yoga. I have practiced yoga for a long time, but with ashtanga I have found the right method to obtain peace and serenity in my life. Practising together at villa bardini in such a beautiful surrounding was an amazing experience, and your idea to connect the fisical practice with art is simply genious. Being a painter myself I found it particularly interesting to see how other artists use their Creativity to obtain a higher state of being. So I thank you for sharing this experience with me and I hope to see you again soon. Love Sonja
