Have you ever experienced sickness or fatigue on anniversaries of major deaths or losses? Grief doesn't just affect us emotionally. Our bodies know and remember grief as well. In this event we will practice yoga poses to help us open our minds, bodies, and hearts while we learn about grief and how it can affect us in body, mind, and spirit.
Magi Khoo has been teaching yoga in multiple studios and corporate settings around San Francisco since 2012. She started attending ReImagine events from its inception in 2017 in an effort to prepare for her aging father's last years in Malaysia. She took the Zen Hospice Center's Caregiver course and armed herself with as much information as she could at such programs. In November 2019, her mother died unexpectedly leaving Magi's father in the care of a nursing home. In the span of the pandemic, Magi flew home three times to be with him before he passed away Fall of 2021 when she was back in San Francisco. It seemed all that she had prepared for did not help her receive news of her parents' passing. But the one constant she could rely on was her yoga practice. In time, Magi began to heal through attending more grief workshops and events at ReImagine where she met Jenny. The journey also included grief counseling, listening to books, podcasts and meditations on death and dying and most of all, continuing healing and self-care practices.
