The many reasons for divorce take place a significant time period before the actual seperation and divorce. Through the practices of yoga this bi-monthly workshop is designed to guide you through your journey of healing the emotional, physical, and spiritual impacts of living in an unhealthy relationship and creating closure for a new beginning. You will learn and discover for yourself how to begin again with an intention to live a life full of new healthy possibilities. Women and men will attend separate session with an option to attend together each month that has a 5th week. The gender-specific sessions will allow a safe place to learn and heal, by using mindfulness practices that will help you identify repeating patterns that are unique to your life. The 5th week classes will allow you to learn how the "other side" experiences life, relationships, and divorce. All aspects of the monthly sessions have the intention to lead you to a new awareness of your own expectations and boundaries for the future, and to guide you while you discover how to create your new relationship to life through the practices of yoga.
 

Ending a sacred relationship through divorce impacts everyone in your life. The intention of the workshop is for you to fully explore the impact of this decision on yourself, your spouse, any children involved, and everyone else in your life. The education is important whether you are choosing divorce yourself, your spouse has chosen this for you, or you are mutually in agreement. Growing awareness on the impacts of divorce is important whether you are considering separation, are already seperated, are in the process of divorce, or are already divorced. It may even be beneficial for those divorced that have remarried and who are in an unhealthy relationship similar to their first marriage experience.
 

Each week will include an introduction to the life changing ethical practices of yoga. These practices allow the practitioner to cultivate new virtues necessary for a peaceful, enjoyable life. We will start with "you know what you know" to bring awareness to your positive and negative character traits. Then, we will move into "you don't know what you don't know" to create new awareness. That will be followed by your choice to explore a new life while implementing your new knowledge for new life experiences with support.
 

The ethical practices will be explored both on a yoga mat and in group education through a discussion style format. Each session will open with a 5-10 minute educational aspect on the chosen Yama or Niyama of the week. Second, is a 30-35 minute mindfulness practice will then be led. The remaining 20 minutes will be a time for self inquiry practices and group-led discussions on how to apply in your life what you learned and discovered.

The class is intended to allow you to find new physical health, mental clarity, and a peace in all aspects of life.

We ask that you commit to 4 sessions over a 2 month period. The price is $100 for 4 sessions.
 

We recommend that you practice physical yoga at a local studio of your choice. Your Big Rock Yoga membership will be an additional $70 for an unlimited month of classes with our highly trained and experienced team of teachers. If you do not choose Big Rock Yoga for any reason, we are happy to help you find a yoga community that fits your lifestyle.
