Yoga-Based Writing Workshop

HSS 114

Please join Loren Stephenson and Dan Weinstein of the IUP English Department for a free yoga-based writing workshop in HSS 114.

Practicing writing and yoga together can ignite your creative fire and liberate your authentic voice and deepest truths.

Combining writing exercises with physical yoga poses and/or meditation poses leads to insights and inspirations that make our writing fierce and original. These insights and inspirations can even improve our lives and relationships in profound and lasting ways, and deepen our relationship to writing.

No prior experience with yoga is required to enjoy this workshop!

Attendance vouchers provided.

This workshop introduces the MLA documentation style (8th edition), including how to quote and summarize from an original source. It’s a hands-on workshop in which students see examples and do exercises. Topics include citing within the text, using signal phrases, creating the Works Cited page, and documenting online sources.
