For the griever who feels "stuck" or overwhelmed by their emotions and wants to learn how to embrace grief, this 8-week program gives you the tools, gentle guidance, movement exercises, and community to do so.
Using Emily's signature moveTHRU Method and online course, you'll learn how to:
- Embody eight common emotions experienced in grief through movement & breath-work
- Shift your mindset to feel supported & empowered
- Navigate your loss with more confidence and courage to identify what you're feeling and experiencing
- Feel more connected to others that have also walked their own grief journey
You can't heal what you don't feel!
The problem with traditional grief therapy (ie. talking about it) is that trauma is stored in our bodies. Research suggests that organs, tissues, skin, muscle and endocrine glands all have peptide receptors on them and can access and store emotional information. This means that emotional memory is stored in many places in the body! — not just or even primarily, in the brain. So verbalizing our emotions in traditional grief therapy can be really difficult when we’re just FEELING it!
Furthermore, when the nervous system is stuck in a state of hyperactivity, our flight or fight survival response gets caught in a loop. We feel frozen and feelings of anxiety, overwhelm, sadness and guilt become all encompassing. All of our attention is then fixed on negative thought patterns and we get stuck in them.
So what do we do when our mind is convincing us that we are incapable of moving forward?
We prove it wrong by moving our bodies!
This 8-module course will walk you through how to:
- Get UN-STUCK
- EMBODY your emotions through exercise
- FEEL your feelings instead of FIGHT them
- Prevent EMOTIONAL OVERWHELM
- Navigate your loss with an EMPOWERED mindset
- BEFRIEND grief as a guide to HEALING
Here’s what some of my clients have had to say about their experience:
"My workout with moveTHRU was a really powerful experience. Having been through traditional conversational therapy to cope with my brother’s passing, it was incredibly refreshing to sweat and work through those feelings without having to talk about how I’m feeling. I felt so empowered afterwards."
"The move THRU course was a powerful tool that allowed me to process my grief after the loss of my daughter. It gave me freedom and space to feel all the emotions that came up in my grief journey. The course was so valuable because it allowed me to move my body to the specific emotion that I was feeling. After each section I gained skills to help me cope with my grief, but still honor my daughter.
Before the course I struggled to find space and time to process my grief with my busy schedule, I could never commit to a set schedule or grief group. The course allowed me to set aside time in my day when it worked best for me and work through the emotions I was feeling as well as honor my loved one.
Before moveTHRU I was lost as to how to deal with my grief, especially the anxiety I would feel throughout the day. After starting the course I felt a complete shift in my mindset, I felt more at peace and empowered to handle the emotions that came up surrounding the loss of my daughter. The course gave me the tools I needed to move forward in a positive way, but also still honor my daughter."
"MoveTHRU came at such an interesting time in my grief journey. I was 3 + Years out from losing my brother and had processed in so many ways but I had just moved back to Colorado where we grew up together and shared so much. It helped me process tricky emotions like anger before they bubbled up unknowingly. I also love being able to dedicate time to missing and grieving him but in a way that allows my body to release some of the negative energy.
The course enabled me to see how different aspects of grief play into my daily life and change with the seasons. It helped me prepare much like you would your closet as summer comes to an end you get the blankets and sweaters out I know what seasons bring up different emotions in my grief. I am so grateful for Emily creating a program that takes movement and applies it to the heartbreaking, expansive journey grief is."
