Body of Words: A Yoga & Writing Workshop

I am so excited to announce this creative yogic adventure, facilitated by fellow Starving Artist Network  collaborators Julie Gladstone and  Roseanne Harvey!

Sunday February 13, 2011

12:00 - 2:00 pm Please join us for an afternoon of deep release yoga, self exploration and creative expression. $25 or pay what you can

TRINITY YOGA 65 Bellwoods Ave. #3

call 416-985-9448 or email to register ...

In this workshop, we’ll use our bodies to get the words out of our minds and onto the page. Julie Gladstone will guide you through a slow and deep yoga practice to encourage opening in the body and get your creative energy flowing, while Roseanne Harvey will facilitate free  form exercises to get your pens moving.

The ability to write with authenticity comes from the ability to slow down and look within ourselves. A yoga and writing practice helps us tap into our creative consciousness, unleash blockages, and overcome negative self-talk.

Come prepared for a spacious afternoon of yoga and writing intervals, in a safe space where you can take quiet creative risks and discover the hidden potential of your inner self. No previous writing or yoga experience is necessary: simply bring a notebook, a pen, an open mind and a willing body.
