MindFUEL, part 2: Saturday, May 16th!

EDIT (May 2015): due to Brynne’s impending nuptials and cross-country move (sob!), we decided to cancel this workshop. I’ll definitely be doing more of these with another of my favorite Karma teachers, so stay tuned!

 

Learning Mind Maps 1

 

Brynne and I offered the first MindFUEL Writing + Yoga workshop on March 7th, and we both felt really good about how it went. We created a safe space and offered tools for self reflection, and every single yogini in our group of eight dove right in. (And of course, the cupcakes were a hit!)

After a short round of introductions, we had a one-hour yoga practice called a meditative posture flow. You sink deep into each pose, holding it for longer than you normally would, the idea being that you’re going deeper into your muscle tissue AND your emotions. (This definitely works for me. The longer I hold a pose, the likelier I am to receive some sort of insight.)

A lot of Karma regulars were out of town that weekend for spring break and whatnot, so we got a lot of “Please do it again, I’ll come next time!” Brynne included a quick survey at the end of our handout, so we also received helpful feedback for making this next session even better than the first. One suggestion was to offer a series of writing exercises rather than one extended exercise, and I am definitely taking that on board. We focused on mind mapping the first time, and I’ll still have the supplies on hand for session #2, but we’ll focus on brand-new exercises in case anyone from the first session wants to take it again.

So the next MindFUEL Yoga + Writing workshop happens Saturday, May 16th at Karma Yoga Studio at 338 Newbury Street, Back Bay. $30 advance sign up, $35 at the door. We hope to see you there!

As for cool workshops you can take in the meantime, check out my dear friend and teacher Anne Wichmann’s hip- and shoulder-opening workshop at Karma Harvard on Saturday, April 11th. I’ll be there!

(I have another yoga post planned for next week. BIG announcement!!!)

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
