Writing is a creative process, as is yoga. Combine the two and open up to powerful new possibilities for creative expression. No need to be a seasoned yogi or professional writer – all levels welcome. Come as you are with an open mind and heart, ready to be inspired and empowered to refresh your ideas or create something beautiful and new.

Araceli Esparza is a published poet and trained facilitator in writing. She has taught the Urban Arts Series nationwide. She’s a contributor to Madison Magazine and was named one of Brava magazine’s Women to Watch in 2015.

Lisa Bauer is a 200RYT yoga teacher, with certifications in mindfulness, yoga/social justice and trauma sensitive yoga. She has practiced yoga for more than 15 years and has been a writer 20 years, frequently contributing to Brava magazine.
