Join Stella Duffy for an online yoga writing workshop on Saturday 16th October, 3-5pm as part of New Writing South’s Writers’ Week. Book your place
Yoga is not about getting the poses right, writing is not about getting the words right, they’re both about giving it a go.
We will connect yoga poses to writing exercises, exploring the physical nature of writing and how opening up body and breath can support our creativity.
Suitable for writers at all stages

She is also a qualified yoga teacher offering yoga-for-writing; writing as a physical activity.She is currently half-way through a doctorate in Existential Psychotherapy, working with clients in cancer support, bereavement and general issues.Her ongoing doctoral research is in the embodied experience of being postmenopausal. Her 17th novel Lullaby Beach was published by Virago in February 2021. You can read more about her yoga for writing workshops on her website.
“The confidence Stella instils, not only to create stuff that’s good, but in not being fearful of creating stuff that’s not so good, is wonderful. And combining that with the bodywork was ridiculously liberating.”
Amy Beashel, author of The Sky is Mine
“Skilled teaching, so much generosity, wisdom, embodied practice, cutting through bullshit, encouragement and expertise-dressed-as-nurture. One of those experiences where I’ll still be mining for riches long after it’s over. If you get the chance to work with Stella and absorb this integrated work she’s forging I can highly, highly recommend it.”
Beccy Owen, songwriter/musician
