YogaWrite Workshop Fuels Creative Writing with Body Wisdom
Sep 28, 2012 09:15PM
Certified Kripalu yoga teacher Kim Childs is teaming up with Deborah Sosin, a local writer and facilitator of “Write it Like it Is” workshops, to present YogaWrite at The Arlington Center, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. on October 27. The workshop blends gentle yoga warm-ups and postures with writing exercises designed to tap body wisdom for self-expression.
“Yoga practice often yields insights and emotions that can be further explored in writing,” says Childs, who is also a local writer and facilitator of The Artist’s Way creativity programs. “Many of us need help moving words out of our head and onto the page, which is where Deborah’s expertise comes in.”
In the workshop, Childs will guide participants through easy warm-ups before leading a few classic yoga postures. Sosin will then lead “freewriting” exercises that reflect the experience of the postures. Participants will be invited to share their writing, if desired, and are encouraged to bring a favorite journal or notebook.
Cost: $35. Location: The Arlington Center, 369 Massachusetts Ave., Arlington. Pre-registration is recommended; visit ArlingtonCenter.org to register.
