What Is Grief Yoga

When Grief strikes it can be overwhelming. Our senses become numb and heightened all in the same moment. We are not sure where to go ever turn is full, but empty and unfamiliar. Burst of uncontrollable emotions escape our being.

You can have a wide range of symptoms .

  • Sadness
  • Numbness
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Physical Pain
  • Mental Confusion
  • Loneliness
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of Hope

The practice of grief yoga allows the body to open and experience the emotional body, in gentle stretching and movement.
Yoga provides the space for the mind to observe the breath.
Yoga can help embrace the grief that reside, within the mind and body and help open the heart.
Grief yoga will gently  open the heart and lead you back to a life full of love.
The guided meditation will help you connect to feelings of peace, hope and  love, strengthening your ability to cope.

This session will include :

  • Restorative poses designed to heal, release physical & emotional pain,  and a willingness to free the spirit.
  • Guided meditation to seek a mindful approach towards our understanding of the characteristics of grief.
  • Music and Art the expression of the soul.
  • Community and sharing of our story, knowing we are unique but deeply connected through our shared experiences.

Navigating Grief

There is a time to dive deep into your feelings, other times we create a space to explore a deeper understanding . Sometime it is the first time we have felt anything so immense,  it washes over us like a tidal wave. We try anything to survive and sometimes we fall, letting go into the pain.
There is a time to dive deep and time to ease into the feelings. Breaking the surface to breathe and to find the warmth of self compassion.
Navigating through grief is personal experience everyone is unique in the expression. The struggle has both  a connective vibe and the feeling of being alone.
Personally my journey through grief continues to unfold, every moment is a reflection of my own reconstruction.

Following my heart has proven to be powerful.
When feelings of hopelessness sneaks up, the signs become easier to identify, but the feelings are the same.
Without breaking the spirit , a small shift emerges from the other side full of hope and spiritual gifts. A glimpse of joy, not threaten by the loss of my daughter, Abby, she appears in the reflection of my reality.
She lives in my heart, my fear to live without her is always near, but a gentle nudge urges me back to my life,  the waves become smaller washing over me as the energy emerges  through transformation..
The shattered hope breaks open, an awakening to  a peaceful acceptance. My personality is free to reframe itself to fit the new emerging ME. The cycle is never ending Death and Re-Birth..I find my Abby in a new paradigm, a place only the heart knows. Her memory haunts, but her love heals.

Grief yoga is my way to create space for others to explore the depths of their own personal grief. To be softer and kinder to its personal unique expression.
Healing through the awareness of deep compassion and love, especially  self compassion and love.  Life demands us to live and keep seeking the mystery of life and death.
