Yoga for Grief Relief
Thu., December 8, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
The fact that grief is a normal reaction to loss doesn’t make it any easier to go through. Even though grieving is thought to be mostly emotional, it also has specific physical symptoms. Yoga can be instrumental in addressing the symptoms of grief because it focuses on mind, body, and spirit, the three areas where grief manifests—and often goes unacknowledged. Yoga for Grief Relief offers techniques that can help individuals move through the pain of loss to find release and relief. Participants learn:
- General information about grief
- The physical symptoms of grief and their psychoneurological basis
- Simple yoga exercises that address symptoms while transforming grief into a resource for personal growth
- Helpful techniques, thoughtful insights, and useful tips for relieving grief.
The combination of theoretical lecture and experiential work can help the heart of anyone who is grieving a loss or those working with them.
