Candy and I have been close friends for many years, and she opened a yoga studio around the same
time that I began teaching writing. Both of our dreams had finally come true. What better sign from the
universe than to pair up and offer a combined workshop to harness that energy?
This class uses both yoga and journaling as ways to manifest your wants and needs, what best serves
your higher purpose and well-being. By setting your intentions and putting that energy out to the
universe, you can accomplish your goals. And the really cool part is that once you set your intention,
you’ll start seeing signs you’re on the right path—something we call synchronicity, or “nods from the
universe.” Maybe you’ll start seeing pennies because you need upstart money for a new business;
maybe you’ll start hearing the same song over and over; maybe you’ll have a chance encounter with
someone who can help you; or maybe you’ll just gain a sense of hope, feel a lighter weight on your
shoulders. We’re often conditioned to not ask for what we want, let alone what we need. Our class frees
you from those limiting boundaries.
Yoga and writing have so much in common, both require retreating inward to listen closely to our true
selves, to quiet the chatter, to pay attention to breath, to keep coming back to physical center. In a state
of yogic practice, release and clarity can be achieved. When you journal right afterward, it’s amazing
what can transpire, sometimes ideas or thoughts you didn’t even know you were experiencing. Clearing
that head space allows you to better make room for taking action on the things you want from your day,
life, relationships, and such. Holding yoga poses stills the body, and freewriting afterward is like
unleashing untapped resources.
This is a go-at-your-own-pace, judgment-free gathering of supportive spirits who want only the best for
