Yoga & Creative Writing with Seema Reza (In-Person @ extendYoga)

May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm EDT

Event Series Event Series (See All)
Yoga & Creative Writing with Seema Reza (In-Person @ extendYoga)

Held in partnership with extendYoga’s Repped: Inclusive Yoga Series for AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) communities.

For questions about registration for this workshop, contact our friends at extendYoga at hello@extendYoga.com or call 301-881-3330.

No experience required! If you can think, you can write. In this creative writing and yoga workshop, we’ll practice a short asana flow designed to help us ground, center, and connect with ourselves. We’ll read and respond to prompts designed to introduce writing as a tool for communication, expression, and relief from holding it all together. There will be an opportunity (though not a requirement) to share your work with other members of the community. Whether you have an existing writing and yoga practice or are brand new to one or both, this workshop is for you. Bring a notebook, a pen, and an open mind.

Seema Reza is the author of the books A Constellation of Half-Lives and When the World Breaks Open. She is the CEO of Community Building Art Works, a non-profit organization that brings workshops led by professional artists to service members, veterans, and clinicians. An alumnus of Goddard College and VONA, Reza has taught poetry in classrooms, jails, hospitals, and universities. She was a 2019 Stand-to Veteran Leadership Fellow at the George W. Bush Institute and the 2023 Pauli Murray Art for Racial Justice Fellow at the Antiracism Research and Policy Center at American University. Reza’s writing has been widely anthologized and has appeared in the Washington Post, McSweeney’s, The LA Review, LitHub, and Electric Literature among others.
