New Workshop Added! Finding Balance On the Page & Mat: A Poetry & Yoga Workshop Weekend

by Kate Parrish on June 27th, 2017

Join us September 1-3, 2017 for Finding Balance On the Page & Mat: A Poetry & Yoga Workshop Weekend.
Led by certified yoga instructor, poet and frequent Rivendell writer-in-residence Emari DiGiorgio, participants can expect a weekend of exploring and strengthening both their writing and yoga practices.

For many practitioners, writing and yoga are conduits to personal inquiry. Both require intention and attention. Emari will guide participants throughout the weekend on individual writing and yoga practices and how to develop new strategies to sustain them in daily life. By the end of the weekend, participants will have explored how yoga and meditation can lead to authentic writing, generated several new poems, received one-on-one consultations, and created realistic action plans to continue these practices at home.

Enjoy a guided sleep meditation, morning practice and pages, writing prompts, free time to explore the grounds and your own work, incredible meals and even better fellowship. For the complete weekend schedule, click here.

Friday, September 1 — Sunday, September 3
Single Occupancy Room : $495
(all meals are provided; participants should bring their own yoga mats & props)

Registration ends August 25. Space is limited.
