Are you dealing with grief after a loss? Join Grief Recovery Specialist, Audrey Pellicano R.N. on Grief Talk with Audrey.

Grief is the deep sorrow caused by missing the physical presence of another, and this loss can seem unbearable. Yoga philosophy might bring you comfort, as you reexamine your loss from a Yoga perspective. But the poses will change your "body mind"! This ancient system of balanced health is actually a state of mind. Stillness. Being in the present moment, allowing us to move from a stressful mindset, from DISEASE to EASE. This is the key to Yoga's health benefits.

Galvanized by an unshakable sadness after her sister's death, hospice nurse Lorna Bell combined the poses from a study validating Yoga's benefits for depression to those mourning a significant loss.

As a hospice provider, Lorna has witnessed many family members struggle with the typically long period of mourning the bereaved experience. Yoga can offer them respite, natural mood elevation, tools such as yoga breathing to gain emotional control, and renewed strength and flexibility, to begin the process of healing.

Join me with my guest Lorna Bell, R.N. Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse as we discuss the mind/body connection and the healing art of yoga.
