Writing Present: A Yoga and Writing Workshop

February 23, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
North Tacoma Studio of Source Yoga 
2712 N 21st St
In this 3-hour workshop, we’ll explore the theme of “writing present” in two main ways: being present as a writer, and using writing to create a present for someone else. We will practice gentle yoga, using meditation and yoga to focus our minds and emphasize areas of the body (neck, shoulders, hips) that tend to hold tension for writers.
We will look at what it takes to use writing as a gift for someone else. At the end of the workshop you’ll have a series of take-home readings, writing prompts, meditations and drafted material to create a written gift for someone or something else. Wear comfortable clothing that allows movement. Composition notebooks and pens will be provided. Writers and yogis of all levels welcome.
If you’re a writer who’s never really tried yoga, or a yogi who wants to integrate writing with your yoga practice, please consider joining us!

All proceeds will go to Write253, a non-profit literacy arts organization that seeks to encourage young people in Tacoma and Pierce County to express themselves through writing, performance, publication, and other storytelling mediums. Cash & checks are welcome. Make checks payable to Write253. Donations can also be made directly to www.Write253.com, bring your receipt as proof of donation. Preregistration required.
