Conscious Grieving®: Using Yoga to Create New Beginnings
Yoga Works Montana 1426 Montana Ave, Santa Monica 90403
When first that beauty stole my love from me. My crying kept the neighbors up all night. But now my love has grown, my crying ceased. The fire that gets most air will smoke least. ~ Rumi
Surviving the loss or death of a loved one poses one of life’s most challenging situations. It is a uniquely personal and emotional journey many would rather not take. Yet when embarked upon consciously, intense growth and remarkable personal transformation are possible. At this workshop we will practice gentle grief specific yoga poses, which facilitate the process of letting go of loss and grief while honoring those who have left. Cultivating a compassionate and safe environment we will discuss coping with grief and loss in the spirit of initiating change and creating new beginnings.
