Writing Yoga ® Workshop and Retreats are held at schools, wellness institutions, corporations and conference centers. Sessions can be in the form of a 90 minute workshop for your organization, an ongoing series of classes, or week-long retreats. We are based out of the Luminous Yoga Studio at the Glen Cove Mansion, just an hour outside of Manhattan on Long Island but workshops have been held all over the United States. Contact us to learn more about creating a customized Writing Yoga® event for your organization. It is always a powerful experience for all who attend a retreat or workshop.

What is Writing Yoga ® Mindfulness?
Writing Yoga ® Mindfulness is a unique method that has motivated many people, from all ages and professions, to make positive, healthy shifts in their lives. It combines art, music, movement and writing in a way that is designed to bring you greater focus, energy, balance, and joy. It is based upon the idea that all humans are creative and that we thrive when we live passionate and creative lives. Writing Yoga® can be a powerful tool to use when making big decisions or when dealing with a new phase of life. Learn more about the origins of this process in the book, Sound Cliff: Twelve Words to a More Creative Life.
Writing Yoga ® Mindfulness is also being used by children and teachers on Long Island. Students learn how to stay calm, focused, and perform at their best. Teachers do too! Contact us to learn more about bringing this incredible professional development experience into your school!
Writing Yoga® Mindfulness Teacher Training
"I used two of the tools I learned in Stefanie’s WY Mindfulness training with my students: deep breathing and the idea of ‘Setting an Intention’ before a multiple chapter math test. Not only were the students able to sit calmly throughout the whole thing, they finished in less time than the regular chapter tests and had the highest test average as a group since the beginning of the year!” – K. Burns, teacher
“My students look forward to using WY Mindfulness in class. They go right into relaxation mode as soon as I give them a prompt. Students have come to me privately and during class discussions to tell me how they are using these techniques on their own. Many have talked about using these tools when they cannot sleep or if they wake up from a bad dream. These techniques to help them relax and become less scared.” – Meryl A., teacher
