Please check this calendar on our website 24 hours in advance to see if each session will be held, and if there are any available spots. We require a minimum number of 5 persons for each class, to pay the model fee. Also, we have a maximum number of 15 persons. So, drop-ins will be turned away if we are full to capacity.
The idea of FUSION ARTS is to take the first hour to come into an altered state of mind to produce great art. The first hour is composed of three sections: Present Moment Course, Healing Light Kata, and Massage Therapy.
Then we start two hours of performance by the Life Model, with Gestures, building into longer Poses. This is Life Drawing, in a beautiful performance space located in a classic yoga and massage studio in the heart of Hollywood. Namaste! Steve

FUSION ARTS sessions
This time and activities are designed to bring everyone into an intention of creating a healing, energetic, peaceful space for performance, wellness, and art, carried into the 2nd and 3rd Hours, which are for Life Drawing.
Intro (5 minutes)
Present Moment (10 minutes)
Present Moment Course
Being in the present moment will improve perception and memory skills.
Method of Present Moment Course
Learn to be in the moment, through clearing the mind. Methods include: sound, music, singing, words, actions, movement, silent meditation, according to the learning needs of each person. Proper breathing is always important in this and all exercises following. We will briefly cover the method of breathing naturally, observing the breath.
Healing Light Kata (15 minutes)
Healing Light Kata is a form, a series of movements designed to strengthen and align your body with the axis of gravity, clearly illuminating the energy and structure of your body.
It demonstrates the role of gravity in life, lines of energy as expressed in static positions and in movement in space. This will improve your awareness of the structure, energy, and the role of the body expressed in natural, graceful movement.
We will do specific movement exercises which I have developed. I have ten sets of these exercises, which are a fusion of Yoga, Ta’i Chi Ch’uan, and Posture exercises. Each set takes about five to ten minutes to perform, once learned. They are designed to strengthen, align, and balance the musculature around the joints and align the body properly into neutral posture.
Break (5 minutes) Set up for Massage.
Massage (15 minutes)
Massage Therapy vividly illustrates the energy and structure of the body, and it is also an essential, ancient, timeless, evergreen Healing Arts Discipline and Science.
There will be a brief lecture and demonstration of Massage Therapy.
Special emphasis will be given to the structure and function of the human body; in movement, power, efficiency, poise, neutral posture, elimination of pain and dysfunction, and how Massage Therapy can be employed as an effective method of achieving these goals, along with the Present Moment Course, and Healing Light Kata.
Massage Therapy is a fusion of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Structural Alignment, Zen Shiatsu, Traditional Thai, Chinese including Acupressure, Tui Na, Sports, Medical, Hot Stone, Ice.
Break (10 minutes) Set up for Life Drawing.
Life Drawing (50 minutes)
The Life Drawing Session is designed to keep this energy and awareness flowing into a focused two hour session. We will begin with a series of gestures, lengthening into longer poses for more detailed study of Life Drawing
