Yoga for Grief and Healing

Grief can be defined as our reaction to a loss, whether it be life, heart-break, empty-nest, or any unexpected life change. If you watch television or listen to the news, you know the images and events that we have seen all too often, are now part of our daily tapestry.

We sometimes store these events away in our physical or energetic body, run from them, avoid them completely, or numb them away. I believe the only way to get to the other side, is thru.

I do not believe there is any one correct way to grieve, but I do know the effects of not allowing yourself the opportunity to feel what you feel. I always remember the simple words of my teacher, after bringing up tears I had been holding back for nearly a decade, “Better out than in”.

According to Eastern medicine, we hold Grief in our lungs. So this series is the opportunity to slow down and breathe into whatever you are sitting with. I also think this season, or any season for that matter, is a good time to give yourself extra attention. You deserve it! After-all when we honor our needs, we are more available for those we love.

There is no one way to do anything. But I’m starting to believe it takes support, a safe place, and the willingness and courage to dive inside.

What is Yoga Therapy?

ANCIENT TOOLS FOR MODERN HEALING

Yoga Therapy is the practice of applying the art and science of yoga, Ayurveda, as well as research-based anatomy and kinesiology principles to optimize wellness for the individual. By integrating yoga philosophy, effective assessment methods, and the application of therapeutic yoga techniques, yoga therapy successfully addresses a wide variety of health and wellness concerns.

Yoga Therapy empowers individuals to take charge of their own health by incorporating manageable practices into their daily lives. These practices are constructed by integrating time-tested yogic wisdom and tools, current applied research, and the science of behavior change. This therapeutic approach is making major breakthroughs in mainstream healthcare as a powerful, non-invasive, and cost-effective complement to Western medicine.
