A writing workshop that incorporates guided breathing + movement to explore what it means to tenderly occupy your body. Together we will unpack what limits us through self portraiture, body scans, manifesto writing and holding space for our voices.
This class is for anyone who wants to deepen their relationship with themselves. No yoga, writing or art making experience necessary. Come with your favorite pen, notebook, yoga mat. We will spend the duration of the class alternating between gentle movements / breathing and writing / drawing exercises. Attendees will receive a workbook, letterpress print + coupon code for the OBIYB shop + future online classes.
Length: 3 Hours
About On Being in Your Body
On Being in Your Body was created to challenge the ways humans are conditioned to relate to their bodies. OBIYB is a collection of ephemera that asks the viewer to take pause. It exists online, on paper, and in our skin. It is a reclamation and the love child of two writers, artists, and academics who are in constant pursuit of returning to the body. We are a small press that creates zines, alternative publications, and workbooks for personal growth. We collect stories, make space for other voices, teach workshops, and online classes. Our project is about discovering, remembering, and taking back what was taken from us as individuals and as a community.
