Haiku from the Body

November 12 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Haiku from the Body
Saturday, November 12th from 2-6pm

A 4-hour workshop for movers who like to write and writers who like to move.

We will explore the interplay of creative writing and creative movement as fuel for empowered self-awareness and self-expression. Let’s meet up at the intersection of kinesthetic and linguistic creativity. Yoga practices, somatic meditations and mindful dance improvisations heighten kinesthetic senses and empower creative imagination allowing the simple beauty of Haiku poetry to emerge from torso, toes and the tossing of hair. Workshop concludes with a celebratory Dancing Mindfulness – Conscious Dance session.

No prior writing or dance experience required. Please bring a journal or notebook and pen or pencil.  Water bottle.  All props provided, though if you have a favorite mat, you’re welcome to bring it.

Your instructor Joanna Cashman is a literature loving movement devotee who earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Dance from Arizona State University and holds certifications in Integrative Yoga Therapy and Evans Somatic Dance. Her creative work can be viewed on her YouTube channel “Joanna Cashman Dance”.
