Writing and Yoga are two powerful, transformational spiritual practices that can bring us closer to God, ourselves, and each other. As a writer and yoga teacher, Ellie Roscher loves to pair writing, breath and movement in a way that invites us to inhabit our bodies and experience deeper embodiment. In this one day writing workshop, Ellie will lead participants through simple breath work, body movement, writing prompts and discussion to unlock and explore our bodies as writers. Our work as writers includes anything that drives us back to the page. Breath work and body movement can help us get unstuck and drop into our bodies where stories reside.
Honoring our body stories can increase our own sense of freedom and agency. Sharing our body stories can put pressure on society’s limiting master narratives so that all bodies can feel safe and belong. There are stories living and breathing under our skin. In community, let’s turn toward our bodies with curiosity and reverence on our path toward deeper embodiment, healing, and wholeness.
To prepare for our gathering, participants will be asked to: read a short reading, complete a writing prompt, and practice a brief meditation. Materials for these preparations will be sent two weeks before the workshop.
This workshop is open to all levels of writers and no yoga experience is required. There is no fee to attend this workshop. Lunch will be provided.
