Yoga and Grief: a match made in heaven

I’m a big believer in “there are no coincidences.”

My yoga teacher from when I lived in the states emailed me a lovely blogpost re. someone’s grief story and I noticed the url was The post she sent was a guest post on that website. 

Obviously I wanted to learn more— and my immediate thought was wow—OF COURSE— why haven’t I seen more about yoga practices enveloping the practice of walking in the world after loss.

So- I did a deep dive into this website and found that Sandy Ayer— who created yoga for grief support had an online course offering.   Brilliant.

You see, the more you go wandering around in the world of death and grief, the more you find these beautiful outcroppings of gifts to us all that have sprung from loss and grief.

Sandy experienced the tragic loss of her partner and that led her to eventually creating the yoga for grief support online program as well as "in person" classes in Edmonton, Canada.

Come along and join us for her story and insights on our podcast episode. HERE is the link to the episode on Spotify but you can find The Death Dialogues Podcast on your favourite podcast platform.
