Yoga for Grief
Grief can be one of the toughest human experiences - it is multi-layered and very individual
We think of grief such as the loss of a beloved grandparent, however there are many different experiences of grief
Your heart could be broken & raw after the loss of a beloved partner, adored parent, cherished pet, loss of health, your heart could be confused grieving for someone who is physically still here but can't be in your life, whether your loss is straight forward or more complex , recent or many years ago, grief is very multifaceted.
There are many resources we can lean into , nothing takes the pain away, it’s almost learning how to shape ourselves around it
The support of good friends
Looking after your wellness
Being in nature
Yoga & meditation
I work with national charities that support those grieving, smalls groups online, bringing together trauma sensitive & trauma informed specialist yoga tools to offer rest, support and a feeling of safety.
FOR INFO & BOOKING PLEASE EMAIL
(Please note sessions are live and not recorded)
To be transparent this is not grief psychotherapy, this is not a magic bullet , there are no promises or guarantees
Yoga for grief isn’t a class to fix anything , it’s an offering of therapeutic rest & support for the body, mind and heart, see this as a journey towards moments of calm, the tools we will use may differ grately from the yoga you are used to, please bring an open mind
Psychotherapy mostly focuses on Cognitive work – Trauma Informed Yoga mostly focusses on Embodied healing. One does not take the place of the other, the science of healing advises us they support each other and are both necessary for healing all layers of self.
I look forward to warmly welcoming you
What previous attendees say...
"You have truly changed my opinion on Yoga and I am grateful to have been able to experience yoga for grief over the past 6 weeks. Prior to joining your online class, my opinion of yoga was holding difficult poses for a length of time. I would never have thought you could use yoga as a form of relaxation or as a coping mechanism to deal with trauma. However, you have truly shown me a side of yoga that I have enjoyed and have gained so much comfort from.
At first I wasn’t sure if it was going to be for me but I was willing to give it a try and I’m glad I did. Since the loss of my son, I have been struggling with how to deal with all my thoughts and emotions. Although I have great support around me, at times it feels overwhelming and lonely. Your class has taught me how effective taking time out to observe and breathe really are. Knowing there are others going through similar feelings also makes it feel less lonely.
You have a natural soothing voice and I have enjoyed listening to your readings. I would definitely recommend this to anyone else struggling with their grief. Thank you for giving me this opportunity and skills, which I know I will continue to use. "
"I have really enjoyed the Tuesday classes and always felt much calmer, more at peace and my mind races less by the end of the class. Thanks again Carli, I really do believe the classes helped me to begin to come to terms with, and give me some headspace to accept, the loss of my mum and my health diagnoses. "
"Hi Carli. Thank you for this evening. I’ve really found the trauma yoga to be so healing. It really helped me over these last few weeks."
The yoga for trauma practice with Carli left me feeling peaceful and calm. I learnt ways to deal with the anxiety associated with trauma. I would really recommend this course with Carli.
It was a real comfort and help to attend those classes
I want to start by saying a huge thank you, I didn’t know what to expect at all but have certainly found it helpful in giving me strategies in which to cope with my grief and also just allowing myself time alone as for me as most of my evening are spent running around after the children
