Clients come to the studio to move and heal from many things, including grief, but sometimes teachers are afraid to work with grieving clients. By normalizing grief and its nonlinear process, the Pilates industry can aid in supporting grievers in a beautiful and wellness driven way, but first, we must start talking about grief and normalizing this very natural part of life. This panel provides an honest and poignant look at what grief looks like, what it can do to the body and nervous system and how Pilates teachers can provide greater support to a griever. Listen as personal stories are shared and processes are explained. Discover what bodies hold onto and how you can seek out guidance. The human body holds onto a great deal of grief and emotion can surface unexpectedly. Join Amy Havens, Pat Guyton, and Zoey Trap for this insightful session.
