Descriptions

A Caring Workshop: Yoga of Compassion

Yoga of Compassion is designed to promote healing after the loss of someone close through breath, meditation and poses. As you explore ways to bring compassion, loving-kindness and nurturing to yourself within the yoga practice you also learn to carry them with you “off the mat.”  With a selection of breaths, meditation and poses you are taught to release the grief and other emotions held in the body and to quiet the mind.  Mindfulness exercises are practiced to ease the pain; and inspiring ideas are shared about loss from ancient Indian philosophers to those of the present day.  Imagine having a satchel of “tools” to carry around and to comfort you wherever you may go! All are welcomed to the program, whether your loss is recent or years ago. The yoga poses will be comfortable and appropriate for beginners but those with experience are also welcomed. Please bring a yoga mat each week.
