Voice, Yoga, and Creativity

Don’t you love it when it all just seems to come together?


I spent last weekend in New York at a voice workshop with The Linklater Center.

It’s a “voice” workshop, but if you do this work, you quickly discover that it’s also much more. In the words of instructor Dianna Schoenborn:

That’s a cornerstone of voice and movement work, but it’s also central to all creativity.

Then, on the train ride home, while reading Yoga Sequencing: Designing Transformative Yoga Classes, I came across this chart:

These five stages evoking the “Yoga Class Arc Structure” mirror the stages my dad and I explore in The Creative Compass: Dream, Draft, Develop, Refine, and Share.

Namaste to that.
