Finding Your Balance, Catching Your Breath

Screen Shot 2019-08-04 at 8.59.08 PM.png

Autumn is a natural time to reflect on loss

Loss is an integral part of life, but our busy world allows little space and time for grief. We invite you to step out of that world for an afternoon, to nurture yourself by experiencing the healing power of yoga and writing within supportive community. Whatever your loss — death, illness, relationship, a major life transition — we welcome you. 

Sam Sather, RN and certified yoga therapist with a talent for helping others cultivate insights of freedom in body, mind and spirit, will offer gentle yoga and mindfulness practices to promote discovery, self-nurture, and deep healing in the midst of loss.

Mitzi Quint, LCSW, a therapist with 20 years experience as a grief counselor, will lead expressive writing exercises to explore both the pain and the transformative possibilities that arise from loss.

No yoga or writing experience is needed; both practices are a place to be free to explore and experience without judgement. This is a time for personal reflection; sharing is optional.

Yoga props and writing materials supplied, but feel free to bring your favorite journal or pen. 

Wear comfortable clothing that allows for movement, and layers that allow for temperature fluctuations.

Bring a water bottle if you have one. Healthy snacks will be provided.

Date: Saturday, September 21, 2019   

Time: 1:00pm-5:30pm (Check-in begins 12:30pm so that retreat can begin promptly at 1:00pm.)

Comments from former participants:

"I really appreciated having a space that was intentionally focused on loss. It was a rare opportunity to be with others who were also there with that."

"I didn't realize how much I was holding inside. Being able to release thoughts & emotions through journaling, yoga, & quiet reflection was something I needed."

"I appreciated having the opportunity to identify a concrete step forward, toward 'YES."“

"The Yoga sessions with SAM were very relaxing. The writing sessions with Mitzi brought so many emotions to the surface for me."

“I felt very comfortable doing the yoga positions, though I have only done a couple of yoga classes"

“It was not intimidating which was welcoming for a newcomer."

"The teachers made this event a worthwhile meaningful growing experience."

"Our comfort was provided for in such a caring way"

"Nothing felt rushed... it was very peaceful and calming."
