In this class students will use yoga postures to help release the mental and physical stress/obstacles that can get in the way of writing. Whether you write for pleasure or necessity, opening the mind and body is essential to ANY writing experience.
Hannah will begin the class with gentle stretching, brief meditation, and move to a special asana practice for writers. In the second half, students will be guided into the writing experience, and then close with a special shavasana for writers.
"As writers, we have our "practice" of writing much like a student of yoga has his or her asana practice. We try to practice daily by journaling, where we can create stories or vent our feelings. Our practice is our own, dictated by what we need in the moment, not by outside forces, but from within. Sometimes it is hard to figure out what we need, but I try to help students with this by accessing the higher mind and focusing on the inner-self. Writing can be the same kind of release as yoga, which allows us to let go of the ego. In doing this, we are better able to express and create, despite, or even alongside, any fear we may feel." ~ Hannah Goodman
