On November 18, Amy Chavez, Melissa Tinker and I will be leading a new workshop at Antioch College Wellness Center! I have a feeling it’s going to fill quickly. Please see below for details, and a little inspiration…
Yoga, Somatics, and Creative Play: A Path to Authenticity
Our lives reside in our memories, bodies, and bones. Using yoga, Restoryative Somatics (TM), expressive writing and drawing, and the therapeutic whirlpool, we will harvest our inner narratives, becoming authors to our own stories. We’ll support each other in releasing what is no longer relevant or was never true. Please wear clothes for yoga and bring a light snack and a swimsuit.
Saturday, November 18, 1-6 PM

EMBODIED CREATIVITY: yoga, writing, drawing.
Are you looking to (re)ignite that creative spark? Life can be so serious, but we are most open to joy and creativity when we make space for play. Using yoga, creative writing, and drawing, we’ll rediscover our sense of play, unleash the creative spark, demystify and disarm the inner critical voice that’s holding us back, and nourish creative living. We’ll begin with a yoga flow practice designed to connect us with our bodies and our breath, then we’ll move into writing and drawing practices that are fun and alive! Finally, we’ll end with some restorative poses to nourish the body and soul. This workshop is for those who are beginning their yoga and creative practice as well as for seasoned practitioners. Please come prepared to move and bring an open mind and heart. We will provide paper and pens.
