Yoga unifies the body and mind, opening us to our deepest insights, while writing provides a container for this wisdom. Practicing yoga and writing together ignites our creative fire and liberates our authentic voice, so we can transcend the inner critic and delve deeper. In this retreat, there will be alternating sessions of yoga and writing designed for practitioners of any level.
