"We don't get over our grief, we change our relationship to it"
- Lyn Prashant
This online workshop shares healthy ways to cope with loss based in yoga and somatics. Whether you're grieving a loved one, pet, home, job, dreams, disappointment, community, identity, way of life, or are experiencing anything else that's shaken your sense of self, you may deeply benefit from the simple breathing, movement, and meditation practices explored in this all-levels workshop. Participants will explore methods to release tension built up in the body related to grief, coping, loss, stress, lack of control, and over-identification with thoughts and feelings.
The self-healing, self-empowering, and self-soothing yoga practices in this workshop are appropriate for those completely new to yoga, as well as experienced practitioners. These practices also allow you to honor and pay respects for any losses you've experienced directly or known loved ones to experience.
