Write Moves is a 5-session online course run by Rakhee Jasani and Vanio Papadelli, for women of all ages to come together and through mindful movement, yoga and writing, support each other to become happier and more confident in their bodies.

What to expect

Rakhee and Vanio believe that mindful movement, yoga, writing and dance are the perfect tools to find your way through the currently ever-changing circumstances. You will use your senses to explore joy, resilience, identity, listening and grounding in the present moment by respecting your boundaries. Stories will emerge through movement and visualisation and your words and writing may inspire you to dance together whilst still in your own separate space. Through the course, you will make friends and share your experience of the past three months with other women of diverse backgrounds and different generations.

Things you need to know

-No previous movement or writing experience is required, just a willingness to have a go.
-The classes are accessible to women of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. If you have any injury, condition or other impairment that may affect your participation, please email us beforehand (info@poplarunion.com) so we can tailor the session to the best of our ability.
-Please wear loose, comfortable clothing you feel happy to move around in.
-Please have writing materials handy (pens or pencils, and a notebook or paper).
-This is a 5 week course (Wednesday 8 July – 5 August). You are encouraged to attend the entire course to gain the full benefits yet each session is designed as a stand-alone unit and drop in is possible.
-Sessions are recorded so you are able to register for the whole course and catch-up. On the 12th of August, there will be a sixth bonus pre-recorded session. Details for accessing it will be published later.
-A closed facebook group will be set up so you can continue conversations once the course is over.
-Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

If the course fee is too much and you’d like to attend, please email us on info@poplarunion.com and we can arrange a discounted price for you.

Please note, these workshops will be held virtually on Zoom. You will be emailed the Zoom log in details once you have booked your slot(s) and given all the information you’ll need before the session.

If you have any questions, please email info@poplarunion.com.
