Unresolved grief can become stuck in the body
Grief Yoga is a simple and compassionate way to heal and re-engage in the hope and beauty of life
As you live and love fully, you experience loss.
Whether through a breakup, divorce, betrayal or death, loss brings grief into your mind and spirit.
Sadness and anger can get stuck in your body.
Through these simple yet powerful yoga techniques, release your suffering and transform the loss into a deeper love and appreciation.
Are you stuck in your head and beating yourself up? By cultivating compassion and courage in the present moment, we can honor the loss and regain balance. This restorative connection allows you to move out of your head and open the body in a gentle and nurturing way. Honor the loss and sadness and breathe life into your body.
When we don’t honor the feelings of grief, our life can get stuck. Transform anger and fear into fuel for healing. Find resilience in these simple and powerful tools to calm your anxious mind, process the grief that weighs heavy on your heart, and take a step toward empowerment.
Regrets can be the biggest enemy in healing grief. The "What If's" and "Should Have's" keep us stuck in the past and prevent us from fully living in the present. Learn to release the struggle and create the space to forgive yourself and others. Pulling up the Weeds of Regret will help you take a step toward peace and liberation to allow the flower of love to bloom.
Move through your struggle into more play. It's a fine line between laughter and tears. Movement, laughter and dance allows the body to flow, the mind to open, and the spirit to sing. Learn the art of flow that will release stress to help you to feel lighter. Find your own expression and flow. Cultivate fun to balance out the grief.
