I stumbled into the world of Vedic art after taking part in an online yoga summit and being creative I thought there must be an ancient healing knowledge that worked with art and I found Ania’s course and it was about to start that night! Ania was so helpful and professional and crystal clear in her facilitation. I have had a whirl wind 15 weeks of exploring new tools and applying the principles to my art work and also this new knowledge that is making my life sweeter and more golden . This has been one of the best things I have invested in for myself. I have noticed I am more relaxed, more able to manage everyday busy life, I am happier and full of promise for the future ….and roll on September for the next stage in this unfolding journey.
Blessed Be and Thank you Ania with all of my heart.

As the course unfolded I became more hopeful and energized. Ania is a skilled teacher who shared her creative joy with us. I am ready to go on attempting this interesting and inspired approach to creativity, life and art. Thank you!

My experience of Vedic Art is that it is so much more than a course in painting. For me these lessons have meant I can now access more of my power in all areas of life. A personal development journey, joy and inspiration to dare to try new things through art! Thank you Ania for your encouragement, generosity and enthusiasm. Your joy and gratitude to life and art is contagious! With love

Wonderful to learn in a quiet space with no pressure at all as the outcome!

I liked what you said during the course: Playing is healing! I agree with that to 100%! Thank you very much for a great semester and for everything you have taught me. I look forward to the next round with you and Vedic Art, it will be so much fun and so educational!
The course brought a lot of what I have seen or done previously together and tied it up nicely with background/reasons for doing so. The starting point of an inner journey- get ready! An exploration of self.

Everyone would benefit from this art experience. To go back to a time where we were free to play. Play with paint in whatever way we want to. I enjoyed Ania as a facilitator of this Vedic Art approach to art.

It’s lovely to go on a journey into ourselves and discover what is already there, waiting for us to embrace our true nature. This course provided a space to do just that – to trust ourselves and let the joy (sometimes frustrations?) emerge. To play, to let our hearts resonate with colour and form, without judgment, and to be guided along the way by Ania who made this a very safe, nurturing and fun experience.

I highly recommend the continuation course – exceptional and a relief to have the continuation poems – I can relax now – it is as if the story can continue now, onwards. The foundation course is a steady upward climb, and now I feel I could travel anywhere, anyhow – anything is possible. Ania is a steady, reassuring and kind. A gentle guide who I have found to respond I a positive and an illuminated fund way to the requests and questions. Thank you Ania for your time and all your care in making this New Zeeland a success of blissfilledness.

Very pleasant personality of the tutor shines through. Encouragement, clear speaking, grounded instructions and references make for easy learning and absorbing of art.

I found myself open, explorative, not pushing for answers, not self critical, not analytical. I also found how to access art/creativity without cognitive process – how to access what I’m trying to express.
I would definitely recommend the course to all who want to paint! Ania’s passion for painting as well as teaching is obvious when she guides and inspires us (as participants) and she is very present, encouraging and generous.
Doing the online course invites a flexibility and opportunity and I learned a lot about my creative process. That it’s not always easy to get started but that the most important thing is to show up. I’ve seen the value of a mindset that there is no destination and how rewarding it is to go on no matter what I experience. This opens up my creativity so much!
I am very happy to have participated in Ania’s Vedic Art Course. I did not know at all what to expect but Ania is very good at providing a safe, relaxed and fun environment where we naturally open for the full offerings of the course.
It was wonderful to see her sharing her passion for painting so generously, and she has a gift for transmitting that effortlessly, as well as empowering us to explore and have fun.
I found her to be a very encouraging, available and dedicated teacher, and very appreciative of our involvement and work together. I always looked forward to spending time in the group on the course and to work on the exercises suggested in my own time.
I discovered that I can paint beautiful things without any effort whatsoever because Ania helped me to re-open the door of playful creativity where nothing is expected and everything is possible. I’ve had so much fun and have been amazed at what I can do with the right guidance and plenty of space to experiment.
Ania’s knowledge of art in her own practice is very supportive on the course and it is fascinating to ask her to share about her own experience. Thank you so much dearest Ania!

I’m a happy participant of an Online Vedic Art course organised by Ania. Taking part in it was one of the best decisions. Ania is a great teacher, sharing her experience wisely and gently in a perfect way. She is very understanding and a great listener who gives perfect advice in the right moments.
Her intuition and awareness of the creative process allows me growth in leaps. The rhythm of meetings is also very beneficial, gives me time for practicing, learning from my own practice and growth. And all of that happens in my private space. I participated in a few Vedic Art courses already and every one of them was very important on my way, and now with Ania’s guidance I’m making amazing progress…she opens the door for you where you can meet your own unique way of creation…she is very respectful of individual creative process so, even though it is a group course, I feel as though I’m on a one to one course.
Vedic Art is a beautiful experience…it showed me a part of me I didn’t have access to. It opened me for creation, but also for better understanding of life process. I can enjoy painting now, I discover new layers of myself during painting which is an amazing adventure, and I act differently in life too…
Ania’s guidance in my painting process has been of great importance. I come from a position where I had” painted myself into a corner “of right and wrong, so much so that I lost the desire and willingness to even hold a painting brush. Ania succeed in helping me to see that the resistance is only about thoughts that come up, and I can let them just be, and instead follow the spontaneous wish to take shape on the canvas. Ania’s teaching method is open and allowing. She listens carefully and gives honest and helpful feedback. This feedback has taken me further on the path to dare to trust myself, to get to know myself and my true expression. Ania has the gift of making the group a safe space, which makes it easy to share about both failures and successes. Ania always give more than expected. I am so happy to have regained my inspiration for painting thanks to our sessions.
Ania is a generous person who engages and spreads warmth and love as a course leader. She listens and gives support for the students to be where you are, and to dare to step forth. Thanks to Ania’s support and encouragement I have lifted my painting to new levels where it will get more place in my life.
The threatening ghost of achievement dissolves into thin air when Ania leads the group with ease, creating a permission field for all and share her great knowledge of Vedic Art and its founder. She leads the course in a warm, calm and allowing fashion, with a personal twist and with humour she shares about her own experience and offers tips from her own artistry.
I grew up in a family with a painting mother and in my life painting was my core expression from the time I could walk. Today I work as an architect, a profession in which creativity and drawing is an important part, but where function is primary and the artistic freedom is therefore limited. Recently I decided, to take up artistic painting as a compliment to my profession, and thought it would be easy to get started again. I noticed however that there was a barrier, that something had been lost along the way. I could not really reach the joy I used to know before when painting. The Vedic Art course with Ania has dissolved this issue for me. In a way that felt so naturally simple and genius the course helped me find my way back to the playfulness and willingness to experiment. I have rediscovered the cornerstones of painting and this has given me new tools to play with. I would recommend the Vedic Art course to anyone who has the lightest interest in painting, as what is given here makes it so much more fun to paint.
The course experience was rewarding, challenging, fun, a great way to meet new people and connect in a safe environment. Ania’s leadership was very warm, friendly and encouraging.
Ania is a wonderful communicator. She is constantly present, insightful and inspiring. I have gained a more relaxed and playful relationship to expressing myself on canvas and on paper.
It was a whole new experience for me, very healing, very reflective. Ania has an open and inviting style of leadership.
I liked experimenting using different paints and allowing myself to explore.
Very easy to follow…I did things I have never tried before… exhilarating, exciting, fun – I was feeling creative! Ania provides a perfect type of leadership: offering ideas and guidance without being controlling.
During the autumn, I took a continuation course online with Ania. As I see myself as a summer painter, I thought that this could be a way for me to keep on painting also during the rest of the year.
When one is taking on a new routine/habit in ones everyday life, then you inevitably face all kinds of resistance. Ania’s own experience of this is priceless. She is warm, humbly listening and sharp in her analysis of the problems that occurs. She knows the resistance we are struggling with. The generous ways in which she share her knowledge, both regarding the painting techniques as well as her approach to it, supports me in creating and expanding the space for painting in my life.
What the course has given me so far, except for Ania’s poetic expression and heart felt dedication, is that I set up a time in my calendar for painting and I create the space and make it possible to have paintings in progress in my home. Continuity is important even if the resistance is there – sometimes more, sometimes less, sometimes not at all. When the resistance appears then I have Ania and the group to support me.
