From Grief to Gratitude 9 Month Yoga Therapy Program

We offer an intimate, safe container for grief to be felt, expressed, shared and healed. Throughout this journey, the group creates a ‘circle’ that offers unconditional love and acceptance, in which all experiences and feelings are acknowledged and validated. Within the circle, participants learn to be a witness for themselves and each other, cultivating compassion, self-awareness and connection within the group. Through this process, trust is created, which invites greater vulnerability and authentic sharing to take place within the weekly classes. As the group explores the relationship between their thoughts, emotions, spirit and physical bodies, they create a learning community in which their grief serves as a catalyst for personal growth and transformation.

Through yoga, meditation, and somatic exploration, participants learn to observe where they are holding grief in their bodies and to witness the sensations, thoughts, and feelings that they are experiencing without judgment. With the understanding that we have to feel our grief in order to heal it, the program strives to teach participants how to be present with themselves, even when it is painful, and to receive the wisdom that can only come from within.
