Thank you for the courage to share your story, and offer this practice. I understand.
Thank you for watching and for the comment, Luna . I'm happy to connect with you. Feeling understood makes the pains that we go through more bearable. I'd love to hear if you explore any of the practices. ~Michelle

Dearest Michelle. I too appreciate your courage in telling your story. I very much appreciate your sharing a reaction that I too felt after a devastating loss five years ago, and which I felt ashamed and inadequate about: I deeply resented my longtime yoga and meditation practice because I thought it ‘should’ somehow have inoculated me against that depth of pain and grief. I joined this online group because I actually could not go into a real-life yoga studio without feeling sobbing rage at yoga’s ‘failure’ to ‘protect’ me. Crazy, I know. I have gradually found my way back to yoga through this site and now I am looking forward to practising with you here. Thank you from the whole of my heart. This means so much to me.
Thank you for your message. Oh, how I relate to what you describe. I couldn't do yoga either! It took a long time to become friends again. "Sobbing rage at yoga's failure to protect me".... yes.  I wonder if/how your practice is different than before. Stay in touch as you go through the series -- I'd love to hear how it's going for you.
With love and care,
