How Elevate Works:
No yoga mat necessary
All done from a chair
Just bring your willingness to release struggle to move forward with empowerment
Step-by-step process to let go of pain to create a new path and vision moving forward of hope and wisdom
Release the pain and grief that is held in your body to make room for peace and hope
When we don't feel feelings fully, it gets stuck in our body. The issues get stuck in our tissues. As much as we may want to avoid the pain, or try to think our way out of the struggle, the body remembers.
Using a mind / body connection can be a powerful way to move with and through the grief. To use it as fuel for healing.
Grief Yoga combines many forms of yoga, movement, and breath techniques to help you process grief and use it as fuel for transformative healing.
This practice is not as much about physical flexibility as it is about emotional liberation. Become aware of the present moment and where they hold struggle or pain in the body and mind.
This compassionate space helps express and release struggles through movement, breath and sound in exercises and flowing meditations. In this way you can finally let go of pain and reconnect to love and the gift of life.

"I’m a bit intimidated by yoga. I’ve had multiple injuries and I’m still dealing with my balance. I found this a brilliant way to release pent up emotional energy. It felt liberating and empowering."
"These classes gave me the chills. It was a confirmation that I need to bring more movement to process my challenging emotions. My mother just passed away and I have felt myself feeling stuck along the way. Thank you for making the course available from a chair. I find these classes so helpful as I heal."
"I took Paul’s Grief Yoga chair class at a time when I was searching for ways to process complicated grief about past trauma. I was doing therapy, journaling and lots of talking with friends. His Grief Yoga Chair class was more effective that any of it. His exercises and technique are designed to surface and acknowledge specific sub-emotions that are a part of grief, such as anger and regret. For grief is not just sadness. It is many things. Paul ministered to every aspect of my grief, creating a unique somatic experience to honor each one. I can’t wait to do it again and heal even more. Definitely an experience worth repeating."
"I am so thankful for Paul's Grief Yoga class, from a chair! I was so genuinely moved by the experience. Virtually; I can feel Paul's presence and compassion through his soothing tone of voice and the way he communicates with grace. I was so grateful to have this opportunity to release and express feelings that have felt so stuck inside of me. I really felt like I was able to let go of some sadness and anger that I have been feeling for quite some time. After the class, I felt a sense of calm and peace. I would highly recommend this session"
