Introduction to Yoga for Writers

Course Director:  David Holzer

This course is designed to help you develop as a writer and yogi. You will explore your potential in a way that is safe, joyful and relaxing as you master a sequence designed to prepare you physically and mentally for writing. It will help you to maintain a healthy and relaxed seated posture and you’ll learn how to access and channel inspiration while developing the discipline required to write for long enough to improve your technical abilities. Find out how to write with less fear and experience a more flowing practice.

The Yoga for Writer’s sequence is simple, but extraordinary in its simplicity and its effectiveness. I’m taking a great deal with me. Most of all, I am constantly reminded that a little bit of practice every day can have an immense impact.
