In my work as a yoga teacher, I actually do quite a lot of writing. Most of it is everyday correspondence - emails, promotional copy, newsletters and other business necessities but there is also quite a lot of class planning and themeing that involves writing. I have worked hard at being succinct and clear in my written communication and I believe that this directly translates to my teaching style. From my informal (sometimes) daily writing practice I derive inspiration for classes, work out not yet fully formed ideas and process personal stuff so that I can be grounded and fully present to lead classes that have clear intentions and solid foundations.
I am really excited to collaborate with my friend and writer, Claire Sicherman, in offering you the experience of Yin Yoga and writing on October the 5th from 1-4pm at the Studio. With Yin Yoga we lay the foundation of openness in our bodies to let held emotions arise and then we journal with writing prompts. These prompts are designed to guide and support, allow for connection, reflection and sharing of writing, if desired. Go here for more information and to register.
