☑ Students will learn how grief affects the body physically and how yoga can help with the healing process.
You can experience physical manifestations of grief (insomnia, aches, and pains, headaches, heaviness in the limbs, fatigue), mental manifestations (difficulty focusing and concentrating short term memory loss), emotional (sorrow, anguish, anxiety, depression, relief), social (a change in your support network or sense of belonging), and spiritual manifestations (loss of meaning, purpose).
Yoga invites you to move into your bodies in a deeply compassionate way, so you can begin to experience your grief in a way that is self-supportive and nurturing.
