Facing the Blank Page, Facing the Yoga Mat: The Yoga of Writing

February 4, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


This is a healing workshop where we explore the interplay of body, mind, movement, breath and story.


  • SWEAT — Move through writer’s block to writing, with yoga exercises designed to free up mental and physical space.
  • WRITE — Tell necessary stories from the heart and mind, and work with these spontaneous writings in class.
  • READ — Become familiar with classical writings in poetry, memoir and spirituality.
  • LEARN — Discover how yoga principles of breath and synchronized movement can liberate the writer’s blockages.

To reserve your spot, please contact Lisa Grunberger at [email protected] or at (646) 369-2350. Space is limited so please reserve early!

About the Instructor
Lisa Grunberger was first exposed to yoga as a child by her babysitter, an accomplished yogini and professional flutist. Lisa went on to earn her doctorate in religious studies at the University of Chicago Divinity School. She deepened her yoga practice through Sivananda training in the Bahamas. She is prenatal certified and has taught yoga for children as well.

Lisa teaches a vigorous, but gentle Vinyasa (flowing) yoga class, which challenges students to be fully mindful in each pose. She views yoga as a dance between body, mind and breath that can return us to ourselves each time we come to the mat with an open heart and good intention.

In addition to teaching yoga in Philadelphia, Lisa teaches creative writing and literature at Temple University. She is the author of two books: “Yiddish Yoga: Ruthie’s Adventures in Love, Loss and the Lotus Position” and a poetry collection, “Born Knowing.” Her play, “Almost Pregnant,” about motherhood and infertility premiered in Philadelphia.
