Compassionate Yoga for Grief and Loss

Yoga for Grief and Loss offers an accessible way for grieving individuals to allow the ancient wisdom of Yoga to transform their current grief experience. While the sometimes grief-illiterate world at large might encourage grievers to "get on with their lives," Yoga for Grief and Loss instead offers an invitation to sit with, embrace, and grow through grief.

Gentle Yoga

Gentle yoga is a mild and accessible form of yoga that prioritizes slow, flowing movements and relaxed postures.  It is suitable for all fitness levels, with movement and postures designed to reduce stress, increase self-awareness and build strength and balance, making it a soothing practice for both beginners and those seeking a more serene yoga experience.


There are too many benefits to list when it comes to journaling.  Simply put, expressive writing is a route to healing -- emotionally, physically, and psychologically. Studies have shown that the emotional release from journaling lowers anxiety, stress, and induces better sleep. There's a strong connection between happiness and mindfulness. Journaling brings you into that state of mindfulness; past frustrations and future anxieties lose their edge in the present moment.


Meditation is a practice that involves training the mind to achieve a heightened state of awareness, focus, and inner calm.  It may include deep breathing, guided visualization, or sound therapy.  Regular meditation is known to reduce stress, enhance emotional well-being, and promote a sense of clarity and awareness in the present moment.


Crystal Bowl Sound Therapy

Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Crystal Bowl Sound Therapy is a therapeutic practice where crystal singing bowls are played to produce soothing sounds and vibrations. The resonant tones are believed to promote relaxation, balance energy, and facilitate healing on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels, or simply -  to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance.

Trauma Conscious Yoga (a.k.a. Yoga for PTSD, or Trauma Informed Yoga)

Trauma (big or small) is experience, or experiences, we hold in our bodies, affecting the nervous system. Movement — here specifically yoga— helps move that stuck trauma.

Dawn offers a gentle yoga class, grounded in choice, with a rhythm of engage, integrate, rest. This trauma-informed class offers space to reclaim and befriend your body, specifically aimed to support healing from post-traumatic stress (PTSD), and the challenges that come along with it, such as anxiety, depression, or being “stuck.” Movement, breath-work, meditation, sound healing, and journaling are used to move stuck trauma.

Trauma Conscious Yoga classes emphasize creating a safe and supportive environment, allowing participants to make choices about their practice, and integrating mindfulness and breath work to promote healing.

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa translates to “flowing with breath” and is a dynamic style of yoga which joins physical postures with breath, creating a steady internal rhythm for the practice.  The practice emphasizes the connection between breath and movement, promoting flexibility, strength, and mindfulness.

Yin Yoga

Yin is a slow-paced and meditative style where poses are held for an extended period of time, often three to five minutes or more.  The focus is on relaxing the muscles in order to target the deeper connective tissues and joints. This practice aims to increase flexibility, release tension, and promote a sense of calm.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation and relaxation technique.  Participants lie down in a comfortable position and the instructor leads them through a process of guided relaxation, body awareness, and visualization.  While remaining aware, participants enter a state between wakefulness and sleep, promoting deep relaxation and rejuvenation.

Breath Work

Breath work in yoga, known as “pranayama,” involves conscious control and regulation of breath to enhance physical, and spiritual well-being. It focuses on various breathing techniques, such as deep belly breathing or alternate nostril breathing, to promote relaxation, mindfulness, and energy balance.

Yoga Philosophy

The main philosophy of yoga is simple: mind, body and spirit are all one and cannot be clearly separated. Yoga philosophy encompasses a set of spiritual, ethical, and mental principles that guide the practice and lifestyle of yoga.  This class explores the Eight Limbs of Yoga which include concepts such as ethical behavior, physical postures, breath work, sense withdrawal, concentration, meditation, and spiritual bliss.   This philosophy aims to foster self awareness, inner peace, and harmonious connection between body, mind and spirit.


Retreat pricing begins at $195 per person (2.5-hour yoga hike), and $350 for full-day retreat.
