Yoga for Bereavement Support Workshop with Penny Zokaie
“Death is a date on the calendar; grief IS the calendar.”
— John Pavlovitz
Loss, sadness and grief affect out bodies more than we realize: our breath is shallow, our posture is hunched, our energy is low, our focus is blurry. We may feel depleted, numb, alone or “stuck” long after the supports and rituals disappear. Over time, the physical manifestations of bereavement, like any prolonged state of stress, take a toll on our bodies and can lead to serious health issues.
Yoga is one way to release “stuck” energy and allow the body to relax, refresh, recharge and heal itself through deep breathing and gentle movement. This workshop is intended to be a conscious “grief-break” for self-care. The format includes: opening meditation; breathing basics; a gentle movement sequence with accompanying aromatherapy and visualization to channel the upward flow of energy; handout and lending library. Open to anyone experiencing the loss of a loved one. No yoga experience necessary.
Suggested contribution of $15-$20 person. All are welcome regardless of contribution.
