Event Details


Join us for Awakening Through Grief: Yoga Therapy Program starting with Wendy Black Stern on Thursdays, 12-2pm. We still have a few spots available!

GSN’s yoga therapy program is designed to help you transform through your experience of grief and receive the tools, self-awareness and supportive community needed to step more fully into your life!

The foundation of this program is to offer an intimate, safe container for grief to be felt, expressed, shared and healed.  Throughout this journey, the group creates a ‘circle’ that offers unconditional love and acceptance, in which all experiences and feelings are acknowledged and validated. Within the circle, participants learn to be a witness for themselves and each other, cultivating compassion, self-awareness and connection within the group.  Through this process, safety is created, which invites greater vulnerability and authentic sharing to take place within the weekly classes.  As the group explores the relationship between their thoughts, emotions, spirituality and physical bodies, they create a learning community in which their grief serves as a catalyst for personal growth and transformation to occur.

The program is based on the belief that grief ‘lives’ in the body.  Through yoga, meditation, and somatic exploration, participants learn to observe where they are holding their grief in their bodies and to witness the sensations, thoughts, and feelings that they are experiencing without judgment.  With the understanding that we have to feel our grief in order to heal it, the program strives to teach participants how to be present with themselves, even when it is painful, and to receive the wisdom that can only come from within.

The 9-month program follows an evolutionary progression that guides participants through a process of self-inquiry to not only move through their grief but to experience greater clarity and understanding of their purpose and life path. Going through a loss can often cause one to question or even redefine their identity.  This can be a confusing and scary place to be, but through the support of a loving community, participants are guided to discover new parts of themselves and grow; not in spite of their grief, but because of it. The program is guided by the following monthly themes:

  1. Grieving in Community / Creating the Container
  2. Presence & Body Awareness
  3. Self Love & Acceptance
  4. Grief as a Teacher
  5. Grief has a Purpose
  6. Holding Grief and Gratitude
  7. The Courage to Change
  8. Renewal & Growth (Planting Seeds for Transformation)
  9. Wholeness & Integration

Wendy Black Stern has devoted the last 20 years to being a student and teacher of yoga and dedicates her life’s work to supporting people to heal and transform through the process of grief. The Grief Support Network’s mission, programs and network of resources are inspired and informed by Wendy’s personal experience of loss and professional background as a yoga therapy practitioner, yoga instructor, teacher trainer and group facilitator.
