Yoga and Writing: Peace on the Mat and the Page
with Lisa Jakub
September 20 - 22, 2019
Explore the deep connections between writing and Yoga in this experiential workshop designed to help put you in touch with your innate creativity.
Join author and Yoga teacher Lisa Jakub to work with writing prompts, practice Yoga asana (postures), and engage in discussions on how to use your creativity to find more peace and purpose in everyday life.
In this workshop, you will:
- Discuss ways to move deeper into your writing
- Access your authentic voice on the page and deal with writer’s block
- Learn how a Yoga practice can help access an inner stillness that supports any creative project
- Use breathing exercises and other mindful activities to increase the mind-body connection
Participants will return home with a better understanding of their inner critic and gain tools to help manage stress and increase joy. No experience with Yoga or writing is required.
