Christiana Donovan teaches Yoga and Writing
Ground and enlighten your writing through the tools of gentle yoga postures and guided breathing and meditation exercises. Both yoga and writing require deep breaths, releasing the tension and sharp awareness of self and the world around us. Both are developed through disciplined practice, effort, patience and flexiblity.
During this evening class, we will use the tools of yoga to stretch our writing, generating new ideas and reinvigorating existing ones. Whether you are beginning a work or blocked, join us to integrate your mind and body.
Note: A yoga mat is needed for this course, but no prior yoga experience. Please wear comfortable clothes to class that you can do gentle movements in.
