Brette Popper believes yoga, like writing, is a process of self-inquiry. Her alignment-based NYC classes emphasize a combination of movement with a healthy dose of yoga philosophy and anatomy. For this special workshop Popper, an E-RYT-500, will focus on fundamental postures that allow students to work deeply through layers of awareness towards relaxation, mental openness and creative freedom.

Cynthia Kling works primarily with students who have difficulties facing the frightening white page and helping them discover the forces within that give them the courage to write. She has recently become interested in animal medicine – specifically spirit animals – and will use this Native American tradition to introduce students to their own creatures as they make their springtime reappearance.



Yoga and Writing: Cracking Open the Creative Edge Weekend Retreat (April 26-28 2019)

In this weekend workshop in the magnificent Catskills, Brette Popper and Cynthia Kling will use the tools of yoga, meditation and writing to help you access your inner creativity and release the stories you were born to tell.
