Yoga and Creative Writing

Come and do Yoga with Valerie Pike, 200 hr RYT Yoga Works Instructor and then look at artwork and learn how to write by being inspired by artwork. We will look at different landscapes and use our senses to help us write short stories or poems. We will also discuss collections from the Louvre.


Writing inspired by visual art is called ekphrastic, from the Greek work meaning "to speak out" - it's a writing technique that makes (silent) artworks "talk". Creative minds.

Figures are as if they were still alive. Visual art speak to our imaginations through the power of images -- think of words as the writer's paint!
