Resilience in Sorrow: An Experiential Gathering Honoring Grief with Nicole & Lauren
Oct 21, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm| $60
Our culture is often avoidant and uncomfortable with and around grief, leaving those experiencing it feeling isolated and alone. Yet facing loss while held within a supportive community can give us access to personal power, as well as expanded connection and compassion.
Join Nicole and Lauren in honoring your grief through a restorative, engaging 3-hour workshop. In this space, you will practice gentle and Restorative yoga, bathe in a sound healing experience, spend time journaling, and learn about the process and effects of grief on the mind, body, and soul. We will co-create a group altar, share community support resources, and have opportunities to participate in discussion. Come explore how embracing your own sorrow can expand your resiliency as an alive being.
Dress comfortably in layers. Bring an eye pillow, a journal, your favorite writing instrument, and a closed lid beverage container. You are invited to bring a personal, symbolic memento for our shared grief altar.
Pre-registration required; space is limited.
*There are two need-based, discounted tuition scholarships available for this workshop. For more info, email email@example.com.
About the Teacher: Nicole Bratt
Nicole, a Midwest native, is committed to holding space for students so that they may benefit from this elegant practice we know as yoga. She is deeply honored to be doing just that as the Studio Manager at Seattle Yoga Arts. Her life passion is cultivating vibrant and inclusive community wellness, and she is excited to bring her diverse background as a graphic designer, yoga teacher, event planner, photographer, volunteer coordinator, and small business owner to SYA.
As a group fitness instructor, Nicole explored yoga briefly in her 20s, but initially there was little resonance. When yoga crossed her path again in her 30s, she discovered she was ready to fully embrace its life-changing gifts. Her path led to completing both 200-hr and 500-hr teacher trainings at Yoga Tree San Francisco, and she specializes in Restorative, gentle, therapeutic, and prenatal modalities. She is passionate about the power of stillness as a transformational experience, as well as an antidote to urban living. After 12+ years living, working, and studying in San Francisco, Nicole transplanted to our lush, beautiful Seattle. When she’s not at the studio, you are likely to find Nicole outdoors, listening to live music, creating art, making/eating delicious food, or adventuring near and far.
