If you’re grieving, you don’t have to do it alone. Cornerstone of Hope is a nonprofit Comprehensive Bereavement Support Center serving Ohio. Established in 2003, Cornerstone of Hope offers support to children and families, as well as resources for schools, businesses, and related professionals working with bereaved individuals. Some of the services include individual counseling, support groups, seminars, holiday events, yoga, and more.
Cornerstone of Hope offers programming throughout the year, including themed events to help get you through specific holidays and events that may be difficult during the grief process.
No two journeys of grief are the same, but they are all difficult, confusing, and lonely. Please reach out for help if you are struggling with your grief.

Resting the Soul – Restorative Yoga for Grief | Wednesday, March 3, 2021 at 6pm | *Virtual Event
Come find rest for your soul in the beautiful practice of restorative yoga. Restorative yoga is a practice of healing for the grieving heart, mind, and body. The slow and still nature of the class allows space for the mind to settle, the breath to expand, and the body to melt. Join instructor, Rachael Mason, for an indulgent one-hour virtual class that will invite you into a deep state of rest.
All are welcome and absolutely no yoga experience is necessary. All you need is a quiet space to stretch out, comfortable clothing, a pillow and blanket, and a device with Zoom. If you have a yoga mat, block, and/or bolster you are welcome to use those as well.
This class is virtual. You can leave your camera off if you prefer.
Cost: $10 per person
