Managing Change with Grace


Managing change with grace is one of the hardest things to do—and needed now more than ever. Join author and yoga therapist Donna Ferris as she shares her experience surviving enormous life changes with compassion and strength. In addition to time spent on the beautiful Kripalu campus, join a supportive community as you work your way through life changes and struggles that have come up in recent years. 

Identify some of the obvious and less obvious changes you face as you

  • Discuss how change shows up in your life and body
  • Unpack why certain experiences can derail you and the importance of acceptance
  • Explore management tools for healthy self-care, seeking counseling, habit management, meditation and yoga, and work/life balance. 

Under the practice of yoga, meditation, journaling sessions, creative activities—including flower mandalas—and small group discussion, build connection and community with others struggling with life challenges.

Leave the program buoyed to navigate difficult times, including the approaching holiday season.
