The Writer’s Midwife is excited to announce a new workshop in collaboration with Dr. Carol Hutchison!!
Chakras are the major energy centres that correspond to major organs in the body. In this afternoon workshop we will be awakening the chakras with Carol through yoga asana (physical postures) and transitioning to specific writing exercises in the last half. This workshop is designed to allow practitioners to tune in deeply to their bodies and listen to the messages that are there for them. The investment for pre-registration is $45 and $50 for drop-ins. The workshop will take place at Yoga in Bowness on Saturday March 8, 2014 from 2-5pm. Please bring a journal, pen, water bottle, yoga mat and an open mind. Please contact Yoga in Bowness for registration.
ABOUT YOUR TEACHERS:
Carol Hutchison dedicated to teaching musculoskeletal health to students and patients. She has been fortunate to have studied with many great teachers and practiced orthopaedic surgery in Canada, England and California. During her studies in Kinesiology, Medicine, and Orthopaedic Surgery, Carol was exposed to a wide variety of educational methods. This led her to pursue a Master’s degree in Education. She currently works as an Associate Professor and Course Director for musculoskeletal health at the University of Calgary Medical School. Her studies have been greatly enhanced recently through Yoga Teacher Training at the Yoga Passage with Tracy Mann, Lerrita Rubinoff, Tanis Fishman and all of the students studying with her. Carol is also a Reiki Master.
Carol’s surgical practice, at the Foothills Hospital, has become highly focused on lower extremity reconstruction, including hip and knee replacement, biologic solutions and transplants. She greets each patient with a beginner’s mind. “I try to see the whole person and address their greatest needs. I have learned so much by listening carefully to my patients”. Carol benefits from the amazing support of her calm and humble husband, Jeremy Tillim. Simply by example, he has encouraged her on her journey.
Samantha Baldwin founded The Writer’s Midwife in 2012 after a bout of writer’s block from an inner critic who left her writing-self paralyzed. She began inspiration-based writing workshops to help anyone who had been limited by insecurity or negative self-talk. Samantha also studied under Lerrita Rubinoff, Tanis Fishman, Carol Hutchison and Tracy Mann at Yoga Passage. She became a certified yoga teacher in March 2013. She has been a Hindu philosophy junkie since she was 17 and is currently taking her level 3 Reiki course.
