Introduction to Bedside Yoga: Yoga and End of Life Care with Molly Lannon Kenny
Time & Location
About The Event
As the general population is aging, many yoga students and teachers are finding themselves drawn to end of life care. We know in our own practice how we can use the teachings of yoga to prepare us for our own death, and may have thought about how we might emotionally and spiritually manage our own feelings in the face of death of people we know and love. But how do we offer these practices to those who are at the end of their own lives? How do we encourage gentle movement practices and share ideas and tools that will help them to heal into their own death? In this class, Molly Lannon Kenny, founder of Bedside Yoga (TM), will share her own experience with yoga at end of life and offer both practical tools as well as a framework of insight to inspire and encourage folks interested in this powerful and much needed work.
Molly Lannon Kenny was the founder and director of the Samarya Center, the Northwest's first non-profit yoga and therapy center for over 15 years before moving permanently to her home in Mexico. During her time at Samarya, Molly led over 30 yoga teacher trainings, was vice president of the board of the International Association of Yoga Therapists and taught and published extensively both nationally and globally. In 2008 she traveled to Tel Aviv, Israel to develop the first yoga therapy training program at Reedman College, Tel Aviv. She is frequently a guest on yoga podcasts and the keynote speaker at major yoga conferences.
Molly’s current focus is on Bedside Yoga, Yoga and End of Life Care, Yoga and Grief Recovery, and the intersection of contemplative practice and social justice. She also delights in sharing the inter-spiritual mystic practices she learned while a student at the Center for Action and Contemplation with Richard Rohr. Molly has written multiple articles in both scholarly and lay press and is the author of the Yoga Memoir, "No Gurus Came Knocking." She has started more than 20 different yoga outreach programs and leads biannual tours to India with one of her longtime students who is a native of South India.
