About This Event
Explore the deep connections between writing and Yoga in this experiential workshop designed to help put you in touch with your innate creativity.
Join author and Yoga teacher Lisa Jakub to work with writing prompts, practice Yoga asana (postures), and engage in discussions on how to use your creativity to find more peace and purpose in everyday life.
In this workshop, you will:
Discuss ways to move deeper into your writing
Access your authentic voice on the page and deal with writer’s block
Learn how a Yoga practice can help access an inner stillness that supports any creative project
Use breathing exercises and other mindful activities to increase the mind-body connection
Participants will return home with a better understanding of their inner critic and gain tools to help manage stress and increase joy. No experience with Yoga or writing is required.
Lisa Jakub is a refreshing warm soul that will feel like a warm hug as she teaches you acceptance of your weird crazy self and provides tools to take home. — Stacy Boggess
She’s articulate, she’s smart, she’s funny, and she’s genuine, warm and friendly. But most of all, she has a story to tell. — Donna Talarico, Founder and Publisher, Hippocampus Magazine
Lisa is so easily understood and approachable. I came with an open mind and was led to where I needed to be. — Denise Nathe
