Yoga to Redefine Ourselves After Loss


The fact that grief is a normal reaction to the loss of what we are attached to doesn’t make it any easier to go through. The global grief episode Covid ushered us into and the more recent climate-related grief only add to our uneasiness. Because we identify ourselves through our attachments, losing them can shatter our identity. Yoga can be instrumental in addressing the symptoms of grief, and helping us reidentify ourselves, because it focuses on the mind, body, and spirit—three areas where grief manifests and often goes unacknowledged. 

Join somatic psychologist and yoga therapist Antonio Sausys as he lays the foundation for you to explore your grief. Antonio will teach you yogic techniques that can help you move through the pain of loss and find release and relief as you learn

  • The physical symptoms of grief and its psychoneurological basis 
  • Simple yoga exercises that address symptoms while transforming grief into a resource for personal growth 
  • A comparison of Western and Eastern models of the psyche that clarify the importance of the heart chakra in both physical and emotional health
  • Other helpful techniques, thoughtful insights, and useful tips for relieving grief. 

This program is suitable for all grievers, regardless of the type of loss, as well as for professionals who work with them. It is not recommended for the newly bereaved.

Note Please bring a picture or object that represents the loss or losses you would like to address during the program.
