Transform Trauma into Resilience

505 - Grief Yoga from a Chair

This compassionate grief yoga training embraces mind/body/spirit techniques to guide your clients to transform grief, trauma, and anxiety into more empowerment and love. During this workshop, you will understand how grief, anger, and pain can get stuck in the body. Trauma can be anything that overwhelms our capacity to cope and respond. Grief is powerful, and many times people feel hopeless. 

This experiential workshop will offer you practical tools and techniques to approach healing in a different way that you and your clients can do anywhere: 

  • Learn resources that you can use to self-regulate the mind and body 
  • Embrace movement, breath, and sound to create strong breakthroughs with your clients and students to help with grief 
  • Break the cycle of rumination and feeling stuck with exercises that go beyond words to tap into the power of the mind/body/spirit connection 
  • Use these techniques with your clients to help open up new possibilities and breakthroughs 

Note: This is all done from a chair and is a practice that isn’t about physical flexibility, but emotional liberation.
