We often speak of the mind-body connection, but rarely do we put the mind and body into direct dialogue; in this workshop we’ll explore the power of using mindful writing, meditation and yoga together so that we can come into greater awareness in stillness and movement, and create more pathways between mind and body.
This special free afternoon workshop will incorporate hatha and kundalini yoga, slow and faster movements, core strengthening exercises, meditation, writing prompts, poetry and deep relaxation so that we can mindfully tune into the wisdom of the body and listen to its messages, stories, and insights.
In a time when so many of us feel overwhelmed by media, news, our busy schedules, and the injustices and insecurities around us, this workshop is an opportunity to drop down out of your head, reconnect, recenter and listen more deeply to your own inner rhythms, voice, and creativity.
Studies have shown the positive health benefits of writing: writing helps clear emotional blocks and has been proven to improve the immune system and reduce visits to the doctor; these benefits are amplified when we allow the mind and body to work together.
Designed for writers and non-writers alike and for meditators and yogis of all levels, the workshop will offer nourishing practices and practical tools that you can take home with you and/or share with your clients and community. It will give you tools to break out of habitual ways of being and open into new possibilities. Come ready to sweat, write, laugh, cry, relax, renew and learn.

Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
