Most of us carry grief in our bodies 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 the pain we feel is real.
