When grief arrives, it impacts our whole being. We are ill-equipped to manage the mind-body-spirit expression of grief emotions that we experience. Without a compass, it’s common to feel adrift in the world, doing our best to manage and navigate the depth we feel.

Embodied Grieving is a methodology of body-based movement exercises that help us process and release emotions. By using the body through movement exercises and breathing techniques, we bridge the mind and emotions to soften the rough edges of grief. In doing so, we create spaciousness and allow new ways to process feelings and emotions as they arise. As we are unaccustomed to processing emotions in the best circumstances, it’s vital to know these practices when the worst occurs.

Join AmarAtma in a movement-based class grounded in somatic principles and the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine to alchemize emotions. We’ll quiet the overacting mind, develop internal peace, and create space for more love and happiness in your life.
