Yoga for Writing & Meditation Saturday September 22

Image

In less than three weeks, I will be at the Gell Center (45 min from Rochester) at Yoga for writers retreat. I hesitate to spell out what my role will be (organizing – yes! facilitating – yes- but an ugly word), and at least I know what I will not do: I do not plan to “teach yoga” or personally “do yoga”.

I plan to create a mental and physical space which will allow you to take a break and spend an afternoon writing, moving, breathing.

What shall we do at this retreat?

  • we’ll alternate yoga/meditation/relaxation with writing practice
  • you will have enough time to get into your writing and dig a bit deeper
  • we’ll have some time outside if the weather allows
  • we’ll have tea and refreshments to help us keep going
