“Writing has always been my primary method for understanding the world.  The practice of yoga has been central to my surviving it. The yoga and creativity workshop I took with Maiga Milbourne at the Transformative Language Arts Power of Words conference deepened my connection to both of these practices and helped me to more fully relate the wisdom and rhythms of my physical body with my creative work, and that experience continues to serve my writing, and therefore my understanding of my world.”

– Seema Reza


“As an artist who has been practicing yoga for 17 years, I have always wanted to participate in a yoga practice that seeks to enhance my creativity. I found just that as an attendee at Maiga Milbourne’s, “Yoga to Unleash Creativity” workshop at the Power of Words conference. I powerfully connected my body and movement to creative generation, and left the workshop with written work and feedback from other participants.  I experienced creative possibility within meditation.  During partner work, I explored showing up for others in ways that can be challenging to do for myself.  Ultimately, I steadied and centered, leaving calmer and creatively charged.”

“Having left corporate life to pursue my own writing a few years ago, I have found the creative impulse isn’t always easy on the body. Recently, I had the good fortune to attend one of Maiga Milbourne’s workshops, Invoke the Muse: Yoga to Unleash Creativity. The session was radical, in the best senses of the word. Maiga’s fiercely gentle presence was itself a creative act. She guided us through several paired poses designed, I believe, to let the body-mind know: you are not alone in this endeavor. I left there with a new understanding of mindfulness and acceptance—no small thing in this poet’s life.”
