Restorative yoga

Join us for a soothing and healing 90-minute restorative yoga session designed specifically for those affected by a loved one’s alcoholism or addiction. Through gentle stretches held for longer periods of time, holding deep breathing, and guided meditation, this session offers a safe space to release tension, find inner peace, and foster emotional resilience. Experience profound relaxation and support on your journey to healing.

Step into a compassionate and nurturing space with our restorative yoga session dedicated to supporting individuals recovering from the loss of a loved one to alcoholism or addiction. In this gentle and supportive practice, we focus on releasing the emotions held in the body through gentle stretches, restful poses, and guided breathwork.

Restorative yoga is especially beneficial for people who are grieving due to its gentle and nurturing nature. The practice provides a safe space for individuals to slow down, tune into their bodies, and process their emotions at their own pace. The supportive props and poses used in restorative yoga help release physical tension, allowing for the release of emotional tension as well. Through deep relaxation and mindfulness, restorative yoga offers a healing outlet for grief, promoting a sense of comfort, restoration, and inner peace during a challenging time.

Join us as we honour your journey, promote healing, and cultivate a sense of inner peace and resilience.

Participants in the Blossome Summer Self-care for Grieving Hearts programme will have the opportunity to participate in this session and together share a wonderful experience.

Important Notice:

This is not a formal therapy group, but the hope is that it may have a therapeutic impact on your life.  Blossome is not a crisis intervention service. We signpost to other services. Information will be provided at the session to ensure all participants feel supported.
