A practical workshop: using movement in times of grief

Often when someone is grieving, we try to help that person by talking about what happened and their feelings. This is absolutely necessary and certainly not wrong, but sometimes the physicality of grieving is ignored. A lot is happening in this process! It is very possible that the body is in a physical stress response.

Gentle yoga and following your breath allows the a grieving body to relax. This often includes softens your thoughts and emotions as well. If you are curious about how such a practice would feel, please join this workshop.

This workshop will be a 90-minute yoga practice in which you will feel, observe and relax the whole body and breath.

No experience with yoga is required for this workshop. A mat or soft surface is recommended, as is wearing clothing that is comfortable. In some exercises, a pillow or blanket may be useful to provide extra support.

This workshop is limited to 15 tickets. 

Sold out!
