Yoga is not about getting the poses right, writing is not about getting the words right, they’re both about giving it a go. We will connect yoga poses to writing exercises, exploring the physical nature of writing and how opening up body and breath can support our creativity. No experience in either required, all very welcome.
“The confidence Stella instils, not only to create stuff that’s good, but in not being fearful of creating stuff that’s not so good, is wonderful. And combining that with the bodywork was ridiculously liberating.” Amy Beashel, author of ‘The Sky is Mine’
