Yoga for Grief w/ Ken Breniman

  • Yoga Kula 1700 Shattuck Avenue Berkeley, CA, 94709 United States (map)

Grief and loss easily get stuck in the body/mind/spirit, causing discomfort and pain. Deepening one’s yoga practice in supportive community brings awareness, movement, and breath to grief’s holding places and create an opening for change.

This workshop is designed for yoga beginners and practitioners of all levels who have experienced a loss or multiple losses (i.e. death of a loved one or pet), major transition(s) (i.e. loss of a job, home, relationship) and self-identifies as ‘bereaved’ or ‘coping with loss.' Together we will honor our individual losses within a circle of support; practice grief-specific yoga poses, breathing, and deep relaxation.

Participants will receive an optional ear acupuncture treatment to calm the spirit and release physical grief.


No yoga experience necessary.
