Sessions in Art & Renewal offer an embodied arts-based experience for individuals and groups. The program is intended to foster physical and creative renewal through conscious kinaesthetic alignment, stretching, liberating movement and relaxation. A safe and inclusive environment is provided by the instructor based on her academic engagement with graduate studies in art education and twenty years of experience in teaching movement and creativity as life-force for renewal, well-being and increased productivity.
Individual private sessions for Art & Renewal wellness retreats and International Tours bring important milestones to life with vitalizing creativity, while nurturing mind and body at a richly poetic and deeply soulful level.
Each session or retreat culminates in shared reflection over culinary delights and communal feasting.
Cultivating physical and creative renewal through conscious kinaesthetic alignment, this practice integrates contemplative movement, relaxation and creative exploration.

Ingrid Hauss is an artist, teacher, poet and the founder of Art and Renewal. She tours widely with her art and interactive installations, combining art, movement and her prose as an integrative embodied practice fostering wellness and creative living. Ingrid teaches at schools, conferences, studios, universities and retreat centres in Canada, the USA and Europe.
Born and raised in the Black Forest region of Germany, she now resides on Bowen Island in British Columbia, where she listens to the quiet voice within to find guidance for painting and writing. Ingrid Hauss has been in the performing and visual arts all her life. Influenced by the artists of the Bauhaus Era and Marc Chagall, she lives with colour as her vibrant tool of expressive story-telling on canvas and in live. Ingrid experiences and shares her artistic practice as a living invitation for transformation and liberation of the creative spirit.
Her bold, interdisciplinary choreographies of brush and spirit allow the body to flow, heal and realign in an experience of inward and outward renewal. Her art has been shown in Switzerland, Germany, the United States and the Bowen Island.
Her most recent article integrating her art and prose was published in Presence: International Journal for Spiritual Direction, Issue December 2017. Her current interdisciplinary art installation will be unveiled at the Global Congress for Art Education 2019 at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver this summer. She is currently in the process of completing her Masters in Art Education at the University of Victoria. Ingrid is an artist-associate at Catching Stars Gallery, where selected art pieces by her are now available as part of the gallery collection.
