The intention of Grief Yoga is to provide a safe space with no forcing, obligations, or judgement.
The grief process is different for every person and this is a welcoming space to express yourself as needed surrounded by people who have felt the same way and understand what you are experiencing.
The class will be a mix of Gentle and Yin yoga offering gentle movement to warm up before holding different yoga poses longer than normal.
It will also be a trauma-sensitive practice. There is no requirement to share your experience. If you choose to share, we just ask you to refrain from the sharing of traumatic information to reduce triggering others.
Instrumental music will be used to avoid any sensitive lyrics and to prevent complete silences.
During class there is always an out for participants.
Many choices will be given and if something doesn’t feel right you can adjust as needed, even if that means choosing a different pose, taking a break, or leaving the class.
The instructor will stay on the mat as much as possible to reduce unnecessary movement and noise.
This is also a no touch class, so the instructor will not provide any yoga adjustments.
This will be an hour-long donation-based class. There is no requirement for donation. The donations will benefit The Children’s Park of Tyler.
The class is open to all grieving and those supporting those who are grieving the loss of a child.
