Get cozy, creative and limber in this slow-moving practice offering meditations and journaling exercises designed especially for writers.  Instructor Lisa Tierney will guide students to calm their nervous systems and reconnect with their bodies and breath in a warm, nourishing space.  Writers of all genres (fiction, poetry, nonfiction, drama, blog)—published or not—are welcome to participate in this restorative, exploratory class of guided reflections on life balance and self-care intended to help participants identify the messages and ideas they most wish to deliver to the world through literature.  All levels welcome.  No yoga experience required.

 

Lisa Tierney is a lead yoga instructor at Yoga Santosha in Calgary. She was drawn (back) to yoga during a difficult time—while she watched her father leaving this world—in search of grounding.  She was grateful to find a space and practice that offered her both humility and hope, and taught her how to let go.  This is where she learned how to truly stop, be in the moment, and breathe.  Lisa has travelled, practiced and taught yoga in several countries—including Rishikesh, India—where she completed her 500hr level training under the guidance of Yogi Vishveketu. 

She says, “On my mat I surrender my beliefs about myself.  I surrender my thoughts.  I accept where I am at.  Today.  I accept what my body tells me.  Impermanence.  I observe.  It is from this place I find my pose.  I breathe in and look for expansion.  I breathe out and find depth.  So much gentler this time around.”  Sweet gift. Slow Bloom.
