[Live Streamed] Bedside Yoga ~ Yoga and End of Life Care
Feb 11, 2022| $45 – $60
In this two hour offering, we will outline the four pillars of Bedside Yoga – faith foundations, what is your role, practical considerations, and movement and touch. We will talk about how each component creates a holistic care model with which you will feel best equipped to support people and families on the end of life journey, whether as a professional or friend, or as a person who is experiencing end of life.
This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who has wondered about combining yoga with end of life care, who has taken other death doula training, who is a Bedside Yoga in person retreat graduate, or who is considering enrolling in the upcoming Bedside Yoga online training.
Students will come away from this powerful workshop with a better sense of what it means to walk this journey, how the yoga tradition can provide a foundation for our own wisdom presence, several practical ideas for working with end of life, and what to expect in the longer Bedside Yoga training.
Zoom link will be provided upon receipt of payment.
Schedule Date: February 11th, March 10th 2022.
Cost: $60. Save $15 by paying in advance of primer date.
