This wild current:
Join us this winter in warm, sunny South Carolina for our first ever Yoga & Writing Retreat led by Certified Yoga Teacher & Life Coach Anjali Budreski & Writing Promptress Jena Schwartz!
14 Participants Max in this retreat.
We welcome you to our first every writing retreat in the South!
Anjali and Jena met in 2000, when they were babies. Well, not really babies. Anjali was teaching classes at Union Street Yoga, a small light-filled studio one block away from Jena’s new house in Burlington, Vermont. Since then, they have become co-conspirators, fellow women-entrepreneurs who cheer each other on, and soulfully connected co-leaders.
Tending to our own wild currents and doing our part in healing a broken world are not an either/or equation but interconnected. As practitioners of yoga and writing, we believe that tending to our own tenderness is a basis for tending to the needs of our families, friends, communities, and fellow humans.
It’s with that belief in mind that we’ve designed this very special retreat to give you space to really connect with yourself, to rest and restore, to love the miracle of your physical body, and to experience the power of your voice on the page and out loud.
Each day will offer group yoga and writing sessions.
** ALL levels of yoga and writing experience are welcome.
This is a safe space and judgment-free zone. If you have never done yoga before, that is totally fine. Practices will be gentle and slow with plenty of modifications given. If you write only occasionally in your journal, or have never written much before, this retreat is a wonderful way to get started exploring your inner landscape through putting words on the page. Anjali & Jena are both experts in their fields and are known for creating warm, inviting, safe space for everyone on retreat to be totally themselves and go at their own pace.
Private consults with Anjali or Jena are also available, at an additional cost.
