Body of Writing adds an additional dimension to the traditional body, mind, spirit practice of yoga: story. Body of Writing offers a combination of inspirational writing exercises and simple yoga postures as well as meditation and visualization techniques designed to help workshop participants access the stories they carry, often unknowingly, in their bodies. Calming breathing techniques will allow participants to move deeper into the process of unearthing their stories. The artistic aspect of each participant will be challenged and nurtured, and everyone will leave Body of Writing feeling stimulated and relaxed. Some individuals will depart with new goals for their writing lives or the start of a new piece. Body of Writing is both energizing and soothing. No previous experience with yoga or writing is necessary. Body of Writing participants will explore their writing and their bodies, and receive the benefits of connecting the two. Attendees of this special evening sampler of Body of Writing will begin to learn how to leave their inner critics at the door and listen to their bodies instead! All levels. All genres.

Fall is a season of transformation, coming just after the summer harvest. Chinese medicine teaches us it is the natural time of letting go. The practice of yin is a contemplative practice of long-held, poses that open and energize the energy pathways (Meridians) of the body. Yin yoga helps nourish the joints and targets the deep connective tissues of the lower body with a focus on the spine, hips, and pelvis. Benefits of the practice are increased flexibility, energy flow and relaxation. All levels welcome.
Bring a friend to celebrate the change of seasons with us & stay for a cup of relaxing tea.
