[Live Streamed] Understanding Grief & Anxiety Through the Lens of Yoga with Madeleine Bong
February 6 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm| $40
Online Workshop with Special Guest Madeleine Bong
This workshop with international trauma informed yoga teacher Madeleine Bong, is for those who are interested in how Yoga can support your understanding of anxiety and grief.
In this workshop, Madeleine will hold a safe space for you, offering a variety of Yoga practices to explore. She will guide a discussion on what anxiety and grief may look like in your body and ways to heal. Madeleine’s intention is to support you as you begin to unravel what is within to connect with your highest Self.
Broadly speaking, our culture shies away from anxiety and grief. Fortunately, there are ways to discuss such topics in a safe, compassion, and respectful way. Yoga and Satsang (sacred gathering) are wonderful tools to support you in understanding your own anxiety and grief and/or becoming more mindful of how someone with whom you are close is experiencing hardship.
Anxiety and grief are inextricably linked and common in today’s world, especially during these unprecedented times. It is important to remember that you are not alone in this journey. Join Madeleine in a journey of normalizing anxiety and grief to cultivate a more compassionate world.

About the instructor: Madeleine Bong
”I have been fortunate to be surrounded with a family of yogis but I found my personal passion for the practice after suffering from a spinal compression fracture in early 2017 and the loss of my dear cousin shortly after. Yoga healed the physical, emotional, and mental pain from my injury and grief, but my love for the practice grew when I found it was helping my relationship with myself and others.
My mission is to guide practitioners in self-inquiry to cultivate self-compassion and empathy for Mother Nature and all beings through movement, breath, and meditation. By doing so, I envision a world of growing awareness and mindfulness from a space of safety, love, and joy. My aim is to provide a safe space for all beings. I acknowledge the uniqueness of one’s experience and therefore teach from a trauma informed lens. This means, but is not limited to: offering variations, open communication, consent before touch, and finding the right practice for You.
I am originally from California, USA but I completed my first 200 Hr TT in Power Vinyasa in Melbourne, Australia and an additional 200 hr TT in Hatha Vinyasa TT. I have studied and continue to study under the guidance of various teachers such as Amy Leonard-King, Gena Kenny, Duncan Parviainen, and Leigh Roy Houghton.
I acknowledge the necessary growth within the yoga community and stand with BIPOC and LGBTQIA communities. My hope is to continue educating myself and becoming more aware to offer a safe space for ALL.”
