You guys, I’m giddy with excitement! Seriously. I just spun around the room, smiling and laughing… Maybe I’m losing my marbles or maybe I’m really, really psyched for the 2014 Writing Yoga Retreat! Last year was such an amazing experience that my buddy Stefanie Lipsey and I decided to do it again. Here, here, and here are what some of the participants thought of last year’s retreat.
But, “What is Writing Yoga?” you might ask. Well, this is lifted straight from Stefanie’s blog, and gives you the story of how Writing Yoga was created: “Writing Yoga® began in 2007 while I was working toward my MFA in Creative Writing at Queens College. It was during my rigorous MFA program when I realized just how helpful my yoga practice was to my “writing practice.” Daily meditations and asanas helped me move through my days as a wife, mother, teacher, librarian and student more fluidly. Not that every day was perfect, but I can’t imagine how I would have survived without yoga. Writing Yoga® continues to grow and change.”
Stefanie offers workshops, coaching and free weekly writing prompts, and together we offer the Writing Yoga Retreat each summer. And as she says on her website, “All offerings use the principles of yoga including balance, flexibility, and intention to inspire the creative process.”
We expect the retreat, which is capped at only 15 participants, to fill up quickly. Admission is based on your commitment to writing, not where you are on your journey (i.e. newbies to published professionals). There’s a discounted rate if you apply & pay before December 31st. Don’t miss this opportunity! Last year we had participants from Colorado, Michigan, and Ohio (as well as New York, of course) who were all at different stages of their writing journey. It. Was. Fabulous.
So if you’re interested, or have questions, please get in touch soon.
Namaste and all that jazz,
