Workshop | Deep Yoga and Journaling


Sharyn Hahn lead you through some warm-up poses and a vinyasa flow as well as several short meditations, creative visualization, and intention-setting writing or sketching activities. You will leave feeling more flexible, relaxed, energized, with a mantra that you can carry with you throughout the week. Please bring a yoga mat if you have one, and they do have some if you need to borrow one for the class. Also bring a journal and something to write with. You will be writing a few times during the class, and if you prefer to sketch or want to do both, that is fine. Wear comfortable clothing, and feel free to bring a warm or cool drink to keep you hydrated (with a secure lid). All levels are welcome. If you have never done yoga you will be able to participate as well.

As a duet for dancer Zack Fuller and dancer/choreographer/visual artist Emily Smith, it presents two figures on a journey, undergoing a series of transformations that are alternately disturbing, poetic, funny, violent, and sentimental. Zack Fuller has performed throughout Europe, Japan, and the U.S. in works by the renowned dancer/farmer Min Tanaka. His own work has been presented by the New York Butoh Festival, Plan B in Tokyo, The Dance Hakushu Festival, Mobius in Boston and elsewhere.

Workshop | Imagery-Based Haiku Poetry


Jay Friedenberg, Professor of Psychology and Chair of the Psychology Department at Manhattan College, is also proficient in landscape painting, digital photography, graphic design, and poetry, including haiku. In this activity, he will engage the audience in a series of visually-evoked poetry exercises. Members of the Haiku Society of America will be presented with several images and be asked to compose haiku based on those images. The haiku will be formed by using the relationships between objects, actions, and narratives in the scenes. They will then share poems with one another in discussion groups and answer questions about the process. The hope is that, as haiku poets, you will learn to compose more often from real-world imagery rather than from intellectual or literary-inspired sources.
