Finding Grace in Grief – Yoga for Loss
Saturday, June 11th, 2-4 pm
Pacific Grove Studio
Loss inevitably touches all of us at one point or another. Whether we grieve the loss of a loved one, a job or marriage, loss takes on many forms and can create tension and stress in the body.
Yoga can assist in providing support for times of grief - the presence and connection that a physical practice invites can begin to give practitioners an opportunity to process their loss and to find grace in the moment.
Join Gennica and Rebekah as they guide you through this gentle practice, beginning with a Sanskrit invocation honoring loss and then move into a soothing, fluid practice focused on breath awareness and quiet moments of reflection. Participants will also receive a sequence of poses for home practice and self-care.

Gennica Cochran, 500 HR EYT, began her teaching journey after attending Mount Madonna School of Yoga in 2010. Inspired by the teachings of Baba Hari Dass, she strives daily to live a life dedicated to service, compassion, and grace. Now as a student of the Jason Crandell Power + Precision + Mindfulness method, Gennica encourages students to explore their practice with intention by focusing on breath awareness and skillful movement to create a sense of deep internal ease that extends off of the mat and into the real world.
Rebekah, AKA Yogi Bekah, started practicing yoga in 2000. She has explored all types of yoga and has traveled all over the US and internationally attending classes, retreats and workshops from well known yoga teachers, i.e. Steve Ross, Jai Uttal, Coral Brown, and Girish. Yogi Bekah's started teaching in 2005 where her philosophy is you start your yoga where you are; yoga is a way of life and the best present you can give anyone is your presence. 2007 was a pivotal year where she was introduced to Bhakti (chanting and singing) and meditation. Her classes have been called Happy flow, yoga for the soul, and yoga at your own pace. She integrates her angelic voice and harmonium playing during classes to allow students to get into their yoga zone and bliss out.
