Nearly all human beings experience the death of someone emotionally close. The resulting grief one feels is a natural reaction to the death of a loved one. For the majority of adults, grief is a temporary distressing experience that gradually subsides over time. However, as many as 20% can experience a sense of prolonged grief and feel their loss is unresolved. Therefore, the proposed Give Back Yoga grant will support a yoga therapy program for bereaved adults at Providence Trinity Care Hospice in Los Angeles County, California. This 8-week course will present a series of yoga therapy principles and low-impact exercises to those who are having feeling of ongoing loss and grief. This program aims to decrease grief related symptoms, enhance the psychological and physical health of participants, and increase healthy coping skills. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
