"Your journal, like your mat, is your refuge, a place where you can let your guard down, discover who you really are, and celebrate that discovery."
- Bruce Black
Do you already keep a journal as a means of creativity and self care? Have you wanted to start a journaling practice but were unsure of where to start? This workshop will combine the therapeutic powers of yoga, meditation and journaling and give students the tools to implement journaling as a regular part of their yoga practice. In this two hour workshop, students will learn about the benefits of utilizing yoga and journaling together, complete an all levels yoga practice with Ginny, and explore journaling prompts and activities throughout.
As a very special treat, students attending this workshop will also receive a handmade upcycled journal made by Kentucky artist Melissa Oesch of Reimagined by Luna (see the event photo for examples of her work). A yogi herself, Melissa works mostly with recycled, remnant, and handmade materials. In describing her art, Melissa says, “I am still "re-imagining" my life on all levels, including my business and the materials I create with. My designs are a result of combining discarded materials, creating varying textures and drawing inspiration from spiritual traditions. I work mostly with remnant leather, repurposed coffee bags, and vintage book covers. Each book is hand-crafted with care and is meant to inspire and aid in each person's journey. My desire is that each book beckons you –the writer, the artist, the storyteller, the questioning one, the dreamer— to fill its pages with the significant, as well as the everyday.” Find out more about Reimagined by Luna here: reimaginedonline.com
