Introducing the ART behind the Art of Fitness

At the Art of Fitness we continue to embrace our deep seeded belief that the fitness industry should be about the quality of ones life. This means exploring ways to create balance, being curious and taking the time with activities that are life-giving. To participate in this, one of our 2016 resolutions, is to share original designs by Stephanie for you to colour on a monthly basis.

A great article in Huffington Post explains the stress combating benefits of colouring for adults, Huffington Post, Arts and Culture.

We have a limited supply of laser printed copies available at the studio for a small fee (payable at the studio). The printed copies available for sale are printed on either watercolour or regular paper. The regular paper print can be used for pencils, crayons or image transfer into your own art projects. These original designs are also available on our website for you to download for free. Printing your own copy lends itself to colouring with pencils or crayons however, image transfers will not work.

  • $10 watercolour print
  • $5 plain paper print

The psychologist Luis Rojas Marcos says in the preface that “coloring comforts us, gives us peace, and lets us enjoy ourselves — it even temporarily frees us from daily pressures… Although coloring a couple of hours does not eliminate all problems and worries, it takes us away and relieves us from the stress that overwhelms us.” By Elena Santos, Huffington Post
