Yoga & Meditation Circle for Writers with Angela Derecas Taylor (in person at HVWC)


Sunday, October 30, 2022
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


This is a two-hour class at HVWC. The first hour and a half is meditation and Yoga with poses specific to helping to get the creative juices flowing, interspersed with open writing from prompts. The last 30 minutes is for open discussion and sharing (for those who wish to share, though sharing is optional).

Participants need to bring their own Yoga mat and any props they may use for their practice as well as pads, journal, paper and writing implement (no laptops). Teacher will bring extra paper, pens and clipboards, as this all takes place on the Yoga mat.

Writer. Foodie. Yogini.
