This course explores the yogic view of dying, and how we can assist and be present before and during transition for those at the end of their life. We explore cultural attitudes and behaviors regarding dying today and how this can contribute to the confusion, guilt and discomfort of those dealing with their or a loved one’s mortality. While this class is open to anyone interested in becoming enlightened and comfortable with death, the course is primarily designed for yoga teachers to make them comfortable with death and transition and provide skills to hold space, open conversation and provide practices to ease suffering for those facing death. Also covered is yoga for grief and loss, and Buddhist meditation for end-of-life transitions. Day two of this program focuses on the role of the Bodhisattva and tools for a yoga teacher/therapist to sit with suffering in a state of compassion and acceptance feeling fueled with purpose and honoring our ability to be of service to others.
