Taal Inc. presents the "Find Your Inner Rhythm", Expressive Arts Workshop with Akshata Parekh.

This is a two-day workshop diving into the world of arts. This workshop will focus on self-awareness, self-exploration, awareness of emotions and self-love using the medium of dance, music, visual arts, poetry, drama and writing. A safe space will be created for self expression and an experience that will help you to understand and accept the way you are. 

These two days will mark a beginning in the journey of knowing your inner-self. Self-care techniques will be shared for daily practice. This workshop is a get-away to spending time with yourself and a group of people who will be on a similar journey. Get away from the mundane and do something different, explore the magic of arts.
