Moving with Grief

Mindfulness and movement practices for working with grief and loss

with Stephanie Howarth & Michael Johnson

Fri, Dec 16th

In Person

Asheville Yoga Center

Grief I've learned is just love. It's all the love you want to give but cannot. All of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go. ~Anonymous


By gathering in community, we make space for ourselves and for each other to process and transform individual grief, together.  In this way we can create a resonant space for transformation and healing, wherever you are in your process.


This workshop offers yoga practices as somatic tools to address the physical, mental and emotional dimensions of grief. Weaving together the practices of movement, breath and sound, the class will offer empowering techniques to explore grief in a supportive environment.  Our intention is that you may leave feeling a greater sense of freedom and a deeper connection to yourself & your community.



This class will move at a thoughtful pace.  No experience necessary - all practices will be accessible and optional.


This inclusive workshop welcomes all who have experienced any kind of grief or loss in their life.


* Participants are invited to bring a journal, a pen and an object of significance for a grief altar (optional). Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in.
