A women’s yoga retreat to share, feel and support your grief after loss.

You may never get over the death of a loved one but together we can change our relationship with grief and learn to grow with it. Come be a part of a space where your grief is validated, acknowledged and supported.

Surrounded by nature, join Therapeutic Yoga Teacher and fellow loss survivor, Richelle Muscroft, to nourish your mind, body and soul in a compassionate space with the collective support of women who have also experienced loss.

Weekend Details:

• Facilitated conversations, share circles and guided journaling
• Quiet time for reflection, nature and rest
• Kitchen Sadhana- Lifestyle Practices workshop
• Take home resources, self-care practices and more

“It was very helpful to be among women who were going through, and therefore understood, the grief I am going through. Richelle’s warmth and kindness, as well as her generous spirit, made it a safe place to feel and share the immense pain we are all experiencing.”- Past Participant
