Instructor: Mimi Cross

Would you like to reduce stress?  Do you want to grow your creativity?  If so, this 75 minute class taught by published author and certified yoga instructor, Mimi Cross, is for you! 

We begin Relaxing into Writing with a centering warm up consisting of gentle stretches and attention to breath, followed by a guided 15 to 20-minute deep relaxation meditation. In this state of relaxation and body awareness, we learn how to sense blocks within the body through a technique called scanning. After the body scan, we transition from relaxing to writing, with the intention of transforming blocks into stories.If you write, or want to write, learning how tension, tightness, and holding in your body can translate into this special type of treasure will support you.  

When time allows, participants will be invited to share their writing, however, sharing is not required!

One full-size 8×10 inch or 8×11 inch notebook and a favorite pen or pencil. Wear loose, comfortable clothing, and feel free to bring a blanket or cushion.

No previous experience with meditation or creative writing necessary!
