Yoga and Creative Writing Workshop with Tiffany Hambley
Writing and yoga are powerful tools for self-expression and for understanding ourselves and the world around us. Yoga practice works through the physical body to sharpen our awareness and insight. Like yoga, writing is also a practice that develops perception and insight. Kafka’s statement that a book should be “an axe for the frozen sea within” is powerful. Many of us have dimensions within that feel frozen or locked up. In this workshop, via both yoga practice and writing, we can free ourselves, and become more creatively and perceptually bold and alive!
This workshop starts with achievable and accessible yoga practice. We will come into the body in simple yoga poses (alternatives will be given for those with physical restrictions or injuries), and then we’ll take Savasana (resting pose) to allow deeper aspects of mind to emerge. After a short break to gather your favoured writing equipment, we’ll begin the creative writing exercises. This combination of yoga practice and writing prompts will unlock your creativity, and get you feeling open and inspired! You do not need to be a yoga expert or a seasoned writer for this workshop. Both yoga and writing are tools that are available to each and every one of us. You only need to be curious and willing! You’ll be surprised at what happens, and how creatively enlivened you will feel. Tiffany is a writer and full-time Iyengar Yoga teacher. She will lead the yoga session and guide the group during the creative writing session.
