What would happen if we practiced yoga and writing together and flowed between the mat and the page? What disempowering self-talk would we release and replace with new, affirming words? What nagging worries might dissolve as we move, breathe, and listen to the voice of intention rather than the inner critic? What brilliant ideas or answers might emerge? And how might you renew your appreciation for your body?

Join Melanie C. Klein, M.A., and Jennifer Kreatsoulas, PhD, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, for a special yoga and writing workshop and experience what’s possible when we take time out to breathe, move, and express ourselves in empowering and affirming ways. You don’t need to be a “yogi” or a “writer” to experience the magic that happens when we get quiet enough to listen to the words, phrases, and narratives that move our minds and lead us to a greater respect for and appreciation of our bodies.

No yoga or writing experience needed. All are welcome.
