Embodied Writing: High School Educator Class

Tue, November 9 from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm PST
Virtual Event Virtual Event

We know how important sensory detail can be to writing, but after many months of teaching and learning online, it can be easy to feel disconnected from our bodies and our senses. In this class, we’ll combine writing prompts with embodiment practices—including trauma-informed yoga, mindful movement, meditation, and breathing—that help regulate stress and bring awareness back to our physical sensations. You’ll leave with a range of tools that can support your own and your students’ writing and well-being. All are welcome—no prior experience with writing is necessary, and the practices we’ll use are inclusive of all bodies.
