The Yogic Writer: Uniting Breath, Body, and Page

Fusing the craft of writing with the philosophy of yoga, The Yogic Writer charts a path to the heart of creativity through the practice of yogic breathing, somatic exercises, and meditations. In response to an oftentimes paralyzing focus on outcome and product, Jennifer Sinor summons decades of experience teaching creative writing and yoga to guide our attention back to the body, the place from which all art arises. Through brief insightful essays, Sinor meets writers in the present moment, providing craft advice while challenging us to explore how we look, who is really writing, and how to listen to our bodies.
