Engage the body, mind, and creativity through yin yoga poses that correspond with guided journaling and creative writing prompts. Since the body and mind each have a response to holding a yin yoga pose for 3-5 minutes, creativity can flow in a surprising way. Each yoga pose is gentle, and is designed to promote qi — or energy — flow. All prompts will be based around a specific theme, which will correspond to each yoga pose.
