Poses & Prose: a yoga and creative writing workshop.

All you need is a pen and some paper and you’re there.

Everyone is a writer. We use words and we write things, everyday. We write e-mails, texts, shopping lists, love notes, songs, diary entries, and the list goes on. Everybody knows how to do it, because it’s a huge part of our culture. What you write doesn’t have to make sense. It doesn’t have to be Pulitzer ready, it just has to come. I’ve heard so many people say, “I used to be a writer, but I don’t really do it much anymore.” Fact is, you’re still a writer, you just aren’t writing. Nobody said you had to be a consistent writer. Nobody said you had to be any particular kind of writer at all. Writing is one of the most therapeutic, healing arts. Plus it’s just plain interesting and fun to do. Well, it’s supposed to be anyway. So let me remind you of that. ;))

Everyone is a yogi.

Similarly, everyone stretches. In the morning when we wake up, we streeeeeetch our arms out over our head to begin untangling the cobwebs. We take a long, deep (secretly yogic) breath to rouse our lungs. Or, we just make a beeline for the coffee pot. What I mean to say is that we all have rituals we do when our bodies are feeling stiff. When I was studying writing, one of my professors told me that when he was suffering from writer’s block he would go out and chop wood for his fireplace. Moving his body allowed him to chop through that wall that was blocking him, blocking his flow. That’s meditation. That’s yoga. So why not combine these two ideas? Physical and mental movement.

If you’re going to be in the Interior of British Columbia on June 26, join me in an afternoon that combines two of my greatest loves: yoga & creative writing. There’ll be no stopping those creative juices from flowing.

Registration is being done by online money transfers or through PayPal. Please send an e-mail to emmaroundtheoutside@gmail.com to reserve your spot and get that process started.

Looking forward to joining you on the mat, and meeting you on the page. ❤
