Grief and loss easily get stuck in the body/mind/spirit, causing discomfort and pain. Deepening one’s yoga practice in supportive community brings awareness, movement, and breath to grief’s holding places and create an opening for change. During a holiday such as Father's Day, some confront the complexities of relationship with a living parent while others sit with the loss when dad is no longer alive. If today feels like a day where you could benefit from being with others who are also dealing with loss, please consider joining us.
This workshop is designed for yoga beginners and practitioners of all levels who have experienced a parental loss or multiple losses that might be intensified on Father's Day. Together we will honor our individual losses within a circle of support; practice grief-specific yoga poses, breathing, and deep relaxation. There will be an expressive writing exercise and optional sharing. Our time together will finish with a singing bowl sound bath.
