It’s five weeks to go before we gather in Teotitlan del Valle for the Oaxaca women’s writing and yoga retreat from March 4-10. Robin Greene, MFA, our writing instructor, and Beth Miller, our yoga instructor, are putting the finishing touches on the final schedule.

There is still room for TWO more people. If you are interested, let me know pronto! firstname.lastname@example.org Airfares to Oaxaca continue to be reasonably priced. For how long, no one knows. See FareCompare, AirfareWatchdog, and Vayama for prices.
Our participants are spread far and wide. They are from North Carolina, Missouri, California, Maine, and Mexico. Some are poets. Others are writing memoir and fiction. Some are well into completing books and preparing them for publication. Others have little or no experience and want to learn the craft. Everyone is interested in yoga, though not all practice it regularly. There will be a lot to learn from and with each other.
We will awake each morning and have a yoga session before breakfast. After breakfast we move into a good block of time as a group to do exercises, discuss write, share, reflect, then write some more. After lunch, most afternoons are free to explore the village of Teotitlan del Valle and the city of Oaxaca, take hikes, enjoy massage, or write independently.
On Sunday, the group will hop on the village bus and go to the big regional market in Tlacolula to browse, explore and have lunch.
The week promises to be one of refreshment, renewal, exploration and contemplation.
