9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Loft Literary Center
The Loft has cancelled all in person classes until June.
We believe our bodies hold deep wisdom. With a sense of curiosity and tender playfulness, this workshop couples writing prompts with restorative yoga to unlock our wisdom and release embodied emotions. Emma will lead a gentle flow, bringing attention to our hearts, hips and throats. Ellie will lead writing exercises that focus on the story of our bodies. In a warm, safe community, we will deepen our yoga and writing practices through inquiry and intention.
Some of us, who do our best thinking while moving, feel stifled, frustrated and stuck staring at a blank computer screen. Pairing yoga with writing can quiet the busy mind, activate the subconscious and find creative release in setting words free on the page. This course will offer writers tools for unlocking the stories we hold in our bodies. Prompts will be geared toward idea generation as well as flushing out those ideas into sentences. There will be time to share writing. What stories have been passed down to you and live in your body? Which do we claim and mold and which do we leave behind? Writers can expect to walk away with writing starts, practical tools, and encouragement to keep writing.
Please bring a yoga mat, water, paper and writing utensil to this workshop, and wear comfortable clothing that moves with you.
