A late summer day of Yoga, Wild Writing, Walking, & Nurturing With Laurie Wagner and Jen Breen


Bainbridge Island, WA

Vegetarian Lunch and snacks will be provided


Dear friends,

We are delighted to invite you to a gorgeous day of Wild Writing and yoga on Bainbridge Island.
This is a chance to exhale, and to drop down into our most natural selves – on the page and off.
We look forward to doing this in community, alongside one another, something that we now know is a privilege and not a given.

We will spend the day writing and reading aloud, and stretching our bodies under the trees.

We hope you can join us. We have 20 spots available.

Cost includes lunch and snacks.

If you buy a ticket but something comes up, refunds will be given no later than August 1.

Hope to see you there,

love Laurie and Jen

About the instructor: Jen Breen  

I grew up in Seattle in a hippy, creative, curious, outdoor-loving family. During my teenage years my mother would walk around the house in aerobic clothes and drag me to a funky yoga class in a gym. Little did I know that this would become my life’s work and passion. I began studying yoga formally with Cintra Brown in Phoenix, AZ while teaching elementary school with Teach For America. 

i appreciate how yoga helps me be more authentic, compassionate and aware. I use yoga to help me understand myself better which helps me understand others better. I appreciate that it’s a practice for life. My practice has given me tools to help me in life most especially as a wife and mother and a steward of this beautiful earth. 

My inspirations and influences along the way are: my mom who values humility and who is quoted to say, “you aren’t as important as you think you are.” My dad who imparted wisdom through modeling a good life of balance and harmony and following your bliss. My sisters Kim and Heidi who are my best friends, advisors and truth tellers. My husband Tom who practices a yoga called “sense of humor” and my four little yet mighty teachers; Grace Cal Johnny and Kate. My yoga teachers; Cintra Brown who taught me the power of mantra and seeing students, Sharon Land who taught me about Daimon and finding one’s unique inner gift. Bikram for the power of asana, heat, discipline and sequencing. Erich Schiffmann for the power of meditation, listening, riding the edge and free form yoga. Katerina Wen for her devotion to the multi-dimensionality of yoga and her brave, authentic approach to teaching with depth and courage. Catherine Shainberg for my yearly tune ups in the potential of imagery to powerfully transform habits.  Newest teacher of mine; Nevine Michaan of Katonah Yoga…an original and diverse teacher.  And, lastly Mother Nature  — the forest, the sea, the mountains and most of all the moss.
