Grief-In-The-Body workshops break down polyvagal theory, movement science, and trauma-informed yoga into a digestible, experiential format to validate the physical experience of grief and remind grieving humans that their body is doing everything it can to support them under the weight of grief.
Students learn how to find resources inside and outside their bodies to anchor their attention to so they can move and be moved without fear of becoming overwhelmed with sensation or emotion because moving our bodies moves our emotions.
The intention is not to fix, but to create space and awareness for grief to move in and to move out. To find the pockets of love hiding behind the hurt. To nurture a harmonious sense of being full of life and full of loss.
The Grief Practice book and companion website expand on the concepts taught in this workshop and supports participants continued exploration of the practices that resonate with them.
