Acute Loss Period
- About Us
Join us for a beginner’s Hatha yoga class focused on the centering of the mind, body, and spirit for those in grief.
What should I bring? All you need is a yoga mat or one can be rented at Red Yoga.
How much does it cost? This class is free but an $8 donation is suggested to help support our amazing teacher. Offered in partnership with Proud Parents of Loss.
This class is taught by Sara Swift. Sara is an angel mama and a registered Hatha yoga teacher. She teaches breath techniques and slow flow yoga with options to modify for your own needs. Her classes are gentle and accessible. Sara invites you to be where you are without any expectations and works alongside a wellness support person to ensure a safe space for grievers. All are welcome.

This twice yearly eight-week workshop is available to anyone who is grieving a death. Each session includes a speaker who shares their own experiences and journey through the grieving process. As a part of the workshop, grievers are placed into small groups according to their loss (i.e. spouse, parent, child, etc.) and given the opportunity to share their feelings and challenges with others. Participants find this workshop to be an instrumental turning point in changing their lives in positive ways, including: new friends, improving family relationships, and learning better coping mechanisms.
