Did you know that the body has a story to tell?
Using breath, movement and meditation techniques from Yoga, Kundalini, Qi Gong and more, we will bring awareness to our body and practice writing from a place of deep listening, allowing our stories to rise through a series of writing exercises and movement.
Designed for writers who want to move and yogis who want to try creative writing, all levels welcome. Not recommended for those with injuries or who may find it hard to sit on the floor.

“Jennifer’s retreats are a worthwhile experience. They’re carefully considered and well executed. You’ll be in an emotionally safe, happy place and your body and mind will say ‘thank you.’” – Bev E.
“The space held by Jennifer for retreat participants allowed something to open up for me and I experienced a deep, inner sense of space. I have been in a period of intense activity for a long time and I enjoyed the retreat structure that allowed us the freedom to either explore the outdoors or choose to go inside. It has been quite a memorable experience.” – Kripa
“The Embodied Writing workshop was everything I had hoped it would be and more. The format helped create a meditative atmosphere conducive to learning and writing. Through this practice I received several insights related to bringing more joy into my life, a request from my body to move around more when I’m at work and advice from my heart to reach towards others and to aspirational goals. I also learned some new yoga postures I can use anytime.” – Sarah P.
