When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family.
Practice self-care and self-compassion through centered and grounded awareness, movement, breathing and deep relaxation. If you’ve experienced loss, you may feel intense emotional or even physical pain. In fact, it’s not uncommon for grieving people to experience depression, anxiety, fatigue, and a variety of other physical, mental, and spiritual symptoms. If you’ve tried other ways to move beyond your loss but have yet to find relief, you may be surprised to discover the healing effects of yoga.
Moving Through Loss Yoga will help you recapture a true sense of well-being. You will find new strategies to help you work through your loss and begin on the journey to self-knowledge and re-identification. At its core, yoga is about accepting change. This group will help move through your grief with gentle clarity and awareness.
