About This Event

“Through yoga you find your breath and through writing you give your breath a voice.”

-Jeannine Ouellette

The dynamic art of writing and yoga has a profound way of providing a creative shift. The practice of writing and yoga together can ignite your creative fire and re-awaken your authentic voice. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Sautee Nacoochee, you can find a new home for the weekend allowing you to remove everyday distractions and allow space for creative exploration.

Stress and tension can block creativity as well as block chakras, limiting movement with your body. When the tensions of the body are eased, so are the tensions of the mind. During our weekend retreat we will give ourselves the space we desperately deserve and dive deep into our innovative potential and release our body from all the collected tension. Even if you don’t consider yourself a “writer” or “yogi”, writing and yoga can change your life by the simple intention of showing up for yourself.

Whether you’re a beginner, a published author, or new to yoga, Reanna and Kristen’s knowledge, through the extensive study of writing and yoga, will help to awaken a deeper connection between you, your pen, and your mat.

You can expect to leave the weekend with:

A journal with pages of  personal writings

A deeper connection with yourself through writing exercises and yoga practices

Mindfulness and self-care practices to keep you centered and focused through your new or renewed journey in writing

Knowledge of easy yoga asanas, to prevent writer’s back pain, hunched shoulders, and tightness in hips and legs

Insight into your creative potential and a sense of rejuvenation and renewal
