Traumatic events and experiences can disrupt our fight or flight response. Yoga for Grief /Trauma encourages you to re-connect with your body and to tend to your nervous system.

Grief and a traumatic event can leave you feeling paralyzed, literally. When a dastardly event, such as losing my daughter Dakota occurs, we can be left speechless. I completely lost all my words. I wanted to just scream. The pain was primal. As we received the news at about 4 am in the morning, and we were staying in a guest house, my husband asked that I don't scream. His exact words to me, before he told me the news was, and I quote "Erin, please don't scream. Dakota is dead.."
I was dazed. Shocked. I had been asked not to scream. I was totally speechless. I stood there in the bedroom for what seemed like an eternity, and then I remember saying. "Well Thank you, God, for the years that we had her." That was all I could think of. My husband asked if I wanted to go for a walk with him, I declined. I wanted to be alone in my excruciating pain.
Any grieving mom that has lost a child can understand the pain I am sure and relate. I don't believe that there is anyone who suffers more than a grieving mom. I have heard that grief does not have any hierarchy, but I would totally disagree. I have lost my mother, my father, both when I was young. A dear sister has passed away. All of these caused me such sadness and deep grief. None of these have compared to the depth of pain that I felt and that I live with on a daily basis of losing my beautiful daughter Dakota. There is a statute “Melancolie” that resides along the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland, by Romanian artist Albert Gyorgy. This statue is of a person, pretty much their whole body missing, the form is seated on a bench, and the head is hanging down. This absolutely depicts the depth of grief that many mothers and fathers live with on a daily basis.
Grief is transformative. Once you have been hit by the shock of grief, your life will never be the same.
