Date & Time
9:30 am - 5:30 pm
In life we experience loss. Sadness and anger can get stuck in our mind and body. Grief Yoga blends movement, yoga, breath work, and vocalization in ways that help one process and release pain and suffering from the mind and body. In this uplifting workshop—through Grief Yoga, meditation, dance, and even laughter—you will experience and learn the following:
- Awareness of where unresolved grief, anger, and resentment live in the mind and body.
- How to move, express, and release the suffering in a compassionate empowering way.
- Techniques to bring more joy, love, and gratitude in your life after loss.
Whether it’s your first time doing yoga or you’ve done it many times, this workshop is for you. Bring a yoga mat if you have one, but this practice can be done from a chair. This isn’t about physical flexibility, but about emotional liberation.
For: Therapists, health care providers, yoga teachers and students, and anyone experiencing loss.
