EP34 Cultivating An Inner Belief When Widowed

Season #2

When Orla Blackburn’s husband died in 2018 she felt helpless and numbed by the grief. It was in yoga that she began to heal.

From her experience Orla Blackburn became a Grief Yoga Guide and Mentor for the widowed to help them find space in body and mind.

Her guidance allows others to heal as they discover their own self-belief and self-confidence. Through her experience she also discovered the healing benefits and power of yoga and meditation for children as well.
