Have you ever struggled to express yourself with the written word? Writer’s block, lack of confidence, procrastination, and lack of inspiration can all cripple a writer’s ability to work. Only when the mind is centered, the body relaxed, and the nervous system calm can a writer be truly creative and productive. Unleash your innate creativity and generate new work with the mindfulness and embodiment practices of yoga, embodied anatomy, and the Alexander Technique.
Open to writers, artists, and creative spirits of all levels and genres, from new beginners to established writing professionals.
Each session in this 4-part series explores the connection between mind, body, and a crucial foundation of the writer’s craft.
