How practicing Yoga in a Community of kindred folks can help YOUR journey?

During our day together, you will deepen your understanding of how the body is an outward expression of the heart and how grief can be held in various parts of our beings. You will learn specific yoga poses. breathing techniques that help to cope with the powerful emotions that loss can bring will practice a deep relaxation process that can ease the grieving heart along with an optional free acupuncture treatment, which can further calm the spirit and release the physical manifestations of grief. We will join together in a heart circle that will allow each participant to uniquely honor his/her loss.

*No previous yoga experience required.

* Space is limited to 15 participants.

Kathy, a participant of Ken's Yoga for Grief workshop shares:
"Ken Breniman is above all an attentive, nurturing, sensitive and positive teacher. I would recommend any of his workshops and classes as he is an exemplary facilitator with well thought out and sequenced poses, explicit modeling and instruction with modifications, and careful attention to pacing that is consistent throughout. He creates an atmosphere of calm and quiet focus that is truly meditative. All of this is augmented with inspirational readings that begin and end each class.
The Grief Workshop consisted of a balanced blend of traditional yoga for the first hour, with the remaining two hours spent in restorative poses, breath work with partners, and acupuncture (if desired). The opening of the workshop was dedicated to those people the students were honoring and remembering who had passed. Stories were shared, candles were lit on an altar at the front of the room, and each person and those who loved them were honored and acknowledged.
After having met new friends and shared my deepest emotions of loss, I came away from this workshop feeling calm and centered and even more appreciative of the life and the experiences that have been given to me."
