Yoga for Grief Relief Retreat
June 12th, 2020 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

This retreat offers techniques that can help individuals move through the pain of loss to find release and relief. A safe environment is provided where to explore and share one’s personal experience of grief in a group context by establishing a ‘sacred container of confidentiality’ and clear rules of interaction amongst the attendees.

The retreat alternates general informational talks about grief with experiential individual and group work. In addition to the 2-hour daily morning practices where the full Sadhana (Yoga routine) is practiced, individual techniques are practiced and analyzed individually throughout the days so each participant can fully benefit from the program.

Through filling out particular charts, attendees access an experience of self reflection destined to identify each individual’s grief reactions as well as how to appropriately address them. Special attention is played to particular aspects of the person’s identity that need to be singled out in order to understand the new self after an important loss.

Participants learn:

  • General information about grief
  • The physical symptoms of grief and their psychoneurological basis
  • Simple yoga exercises that address symptoms while transforming grief into a resource for personal growth
  • Helpful techniques, thoughtful insights, and useful tips for relieving grief.
  • The combination of theoretical lecture and experiential work can help the heart of anyone who is grieving a loss or those working with them.

For those interested in the Yoga for Grief Relief Professional Training, a retreat like this is required so at the time of the training, participants have a first hand experience of the program and its effect. The personal insights tapped into at the retreat are of essence for the future professional work’s efficacy.
