Yoga for Creative Writers
Create and Move with Breath and Awareness
"Write OM; Yoga for Creative Writers", is a playshop-style course where together we can explore the intersections between yoga practice, the creative heart and the writing life.
Incorporating music, muses, movement and international yoga class experience with kinesthetic mind-body assimilation, it is my joy to create unique encounters that will breathe life into your creative expression and creativity into your yoga. Throughout class we will flow between classic yoga asanas (poses) to promote “creative juice flow” and breathing and meditative techniques that facilitate right-left brain synthesis and integrated thinking/feeling/ sensing. Participants will have opportunities for private introspection, writing interludes, and group workshopping. We may get deep and philosophical or silly and nonsensical. It's all part of freeing the spirit within.
Exercises will include “Howler Timer” free-writes, strength and endurance challenges, writing prompts, creative visualization, and more. Participants may choose the option for personalized feedback on work generated in class.
Participants are asked to wear clothing which allows freedom of movement and breath and to bring a yoga mat and a writing notebook. Some prior knowledge of yoga is beneficial but not necessary.
Playshops are $22 each or 2 or more for $20 each.

Previous Yoga Experience:
It is imperative to me to honor any injuries or areas of physical concern you may have as well as any emotional conditions i.e. depression, grief, recovery, etc. that you are experiencing. It takes courage to share this type of information. Please be assured that it will be handled respectfully and sensitively. Please indicate if you would like me to contact you to discuss any matters confidentially before we embark in our practice together.
