Yoga & Writing
We all have stories to tell, spun of a lifetime of experience, wisdom, and imagination. The wriiten word is a great tool for self-discovery, finding your voice, and creative expression. I have found writing helps me get to the heart of something on my mind, become aware of important information just below the surface of my awareness, or become conscious of a new layer of truth.
Combining yoga and a writing practice can enhance one another to activate different kinds of learning and parts of the brain. In each class I will be guiding everyone through some yoga postures, breath work, and meditation so that we can all stretch, relax, and gently open our minds and bodies to the wisdom and creativity we have within. I will be creating each yoga sequence specifically to complement the writing prompts we work on afterwards. Additionally, there will be an online forum where we can tap into our collective wisdom on the writing process, yoga philosophy as it relates to writing, and other related writing topics.

I have been practicing yoga for the last 7 years. I completed a yoga teacher training program to receive a 200hr RYT certification in fall 2008. In my free time I like to study yoga philosophy and yoga's various forms, as well as how yoga can enhance the creative process in activities like writing and making art, how the creative process in turn can deepen one's yoga practice.
