Have you been thinking about writing more? Experiencing writer’s block? Avoiding writing, because you don’t think you’re good enough? Just Write is here to help you get your writing project off the ground by combining writing exercises with mindfulness training, physical activity, or time spent in nature.
Writing + Yoga
Sunday August 13th 2:00pm - 5:00pm at Distrikt Movement
This workshop combines discussion, coaching, writing exercises and a gentle yoga practice to help participants to move past their creative barriers, and get started writing.
Altaira Northe - Altaira Northe is a writer, writing coach, and ultramarathon runner, who splits her time between Toronto and BC’s Sunshine Coast. She draws from her experience working with creatives, researchers, and entrepreneurs over the past decade to help other writers to get past their creative blocks. She's also the founder & host of @cm_suncoast and was the former host of @toronto_cm.
Jess Robson - Jess Robson is a freelance writer and creative who's as much of a glutton for a good session of pen to paper journalling as she is for making shapes in a yoga class. While dance was her form of personal freedom and expression in her early years, yoga now offers her a new means of connecting her brain to her body, and getting out of her head and into her heart. She teaches to offer that experience to others; a little space for some looser hamstrings and a touch more openness for creative thoughts to take form - from the head, to the heart, to the hand, to the page.
Testimonials from past Just Write workshops
"I really enjoyed taking this course. There was less of a barrier to start writing and really made it easy to start. I think the flow week to week was perfect and suited my needs for writing perfectly. It wasn't too time consuming so was easy to do while also working and doing all the other things life has scheduled." - Past Participant
"I attended a Just Write workshop when I needed it the most. During a phase of writers block/doubt. The exercises Altaira took us through, and the anecdotes from her own writing journey helped me to focus on what I was trying to accomplish with my writing. The simple acknowledgment that it's a process, (and not a burden), helped immensely.
I would definitely recommend this workshop to anyone needing that little push in the right direction or encouragement to just write." - Melissa Doldron
