Memorial Walk for Hope & Healing

The Memorial Walk for Hope & Healing is an opportunity for people to gather who have lost a loved one in their lives. We come together with others to share their losses, reflections, and hopes for the future.

To end, a ceremony of reflection, names of each person being remembered by participants is read aloud.

Yoga & Grief Workshop

Traumatic loss impacts us in so many ways. We feel the loss in our body, our mind, and our heart. Yoga can aid in easing some of the symptoms of grief by helping to unite the body, breath, and heart when it can feel like our grief has severed this connection.

Having a designated space and time to tune into what is happening under the surface creates space for healing. Yoga for the grieving offers an opportunity to be in the presence of others who are healing without having to share or take in stories. The quiet presence of others also in pain and in healing offers comfort.

Join us for our Yoga and Grief workshop. We will share information about yoga; including how and why it can help ease grief. We will then apply this information with a gentle yoga practice, led by Dallas Rising, a certified yoga teacher.
