Most of us carry grief in our body in some way. Grief is caused by loss of loved ones, loss of jobs, of homes, of business, relationships, and more. When left unattended it can manifest into mental, physical, and emotional strain.

Yoga and mindfulness are pathways to move some of the grief energy through the body in a constructive manner. Come spend a weekend dedicated to processing your grief, in a constructive, supportive way. We’ll spend time addressing how grief is showing up for you, and use movement, breath, and mindfulness exercises to find release.

Grief can feel incredibly isolating; being with others can remind us that we’re not alone, allow us to drop deeper into our feelings, and acknowledge that the pain we feel is real.

The weekend will include daily yoga sessions, optional hikes, nourishing meals, and plenty of time for cozy cups of tea, journaling, and rest.

No experience is needed; only a willingness to show up. Brand-new beginners will find plenty of direction on all aspects of our practice, and more experienced yogis will discover ways to use their practice to support healing.

This retreat is being offered through Yoga Home at the Himalayan Institute, approximately 3 hours from Philadelphia. Please note, all participants must be vaccinated and adhere to the Himalayan Institute’s COVID protocol.

  • 4 yoga practices – these will include a mix of slow flow, gentle, restorative, and yoga nidra (appropriate for all levels, even beginners)
