Yoga For Community Series: Grief

Grief enters our lives for a multitude of reasons. You may be navigating life after an ended relationship, loss of a furry companion, death of a loved one or maybe you are grieving the loss of what you thought life was supposed to be like, a dream gone by, or a missed opportunity. The source of your grief does not change the weight of it. Grief is sneaky, too. One minute you are cruising through life composed and happy, and in the next breath you feel overcome with emotions that are too much to handle. Yoga can provide you with the time and space to process these intense emotions, release energy you are holding, and allow you to care for yourself. Grief is not meant to be held in private--Come find community. Our grief lessens when we learn to share the burden with others willing to help us carry it.

Grand Rapids Natural Health and Jenny Tanis Counseling & Yoga have decided to intentionally create a safe space for you to explore mindful breath and movement in a community of people who understand your struggle. Come experience a gentle yoga class that will aid in relaxation, increase blood circulation and energy flow, and promote self-love. Then, choose to stay after and be in community with others navigating their own personal grief journey. 

During the Yoga for Community series, Counselor and Yoga Teacher, Jenny Tanis, will lead you through a gentle yoga class designed specifically to help address your current concern. Jenny will share with you the physical and emotional benefits of the movement and breath-work so that you can incorporate them into your daily routine.

Additional resources and community support information will be provided. Following class, if you feel comfortable, you are invited to stay for tea and snacks and connect with other individuals who are navigating a similar journey. There is medicine in "me too". Join us and find the healing power of a compassionate community.

RSVP online or by calling (616) 264-6556.

Yoga For Community Series: Depression

Copy of Yoga for Community Series - 3.png

Depression is one of the most common mental health conditions in the United States. Depression is more than being sad or having a bad day. Depression takes hold of your life, replacing joy and pleasure with pain and emptiness. Depression has the ability to make you feel like the only person standing in a crowded space. But you are not the only person and you, like many others, deserve a life filled with joy, pleasure, happiness, and excitement. Studies continue to prove that yoga, along with concentrated breathing techniques, ease the symptoms of depression.

Join us, be noticed, connect with others, and find new ways to loosen the grip depression has on your life. Grand Rapids Natural Health and Jenny Tanis Counseling & Yoga have decided to intentionally create a safe space for you to explore mindful breath and movement in a community of people who understand your struggle. Come experience a gentle yoga class that will aid in relaxation, increase blood circulation and energy flow, balance hormone levels, and promote self-love. Then, choose to stay after and be in community with others navigating their own personal depression journey. 

During the Yoga for Community series, Counselor and Yoga Teacher, Jenny Tanis, will lead you through a gentle yoga class designed specifically to help address your current concern. Jenny will share with you the physical and emotional benefits of the movement and breath-work so that you can incorporate them into your daily routine.

Nutritionally Fit Series: Cooking Class 4 - Heal Your Gut, Soups and Stews

Audrey - Cooking Class FB Event Cover.png

Have you learned about gut health and how an unhealthy gut is extremely common, but also the root cause to many health issues and struggles in the body?  Allergies, asthma, hormone imbalance, immune function, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression, obesity and so much more are tied to the "microbiome" aka gut.  This class is for anyone who loves to eat warming, grounding and seasonal comfort foods while living a busy life.  Together we will focus on preparing and cooking to help heal and seal the gut while also accommodating various diets and lifestyles.

With a background in education, over 13 years of experience in the kitchen working with whole foods and feeding her active family of 5, Audrey has mastered what it takes to lead clients to take action. There are many ways to make healthy eating taste amazing, but without the necessary kitchen skills, it can often seem impossible and become a roadblock.

Highlights of the evening include:
- Explanations and demos with fresh picked local produce. 
- Plant-based recipes. 
- Hands-on learning for those who prefer it.
- A little wine for sipping and infused water for tasting.
- Food sampling.
- Food storage and safety tips.
- Brief group coaching segment/time for Q&A.
- Recipe handout.

Yoga For Community Series: Infertility

Yoga for Community Series - 1.png

While 1 in 8 couples in the US experience struggles when trying to grow their families, navigating your fertility journey can be a very isolated experience. We need community to help us bear the burden of grief, anger, anxiety, sadness, and frustration. We need community to say, “You? Me too.” 

We are not meant to live life alone. We are created for community. Yet, when life gets hard and we find ourselves in the middle of a struggle, we find ourselves retreating further and further into isolation. Finding community is hard. Finding a community that can empathize and understand what you are going through, well that feels practically impossible. 

Grand Rapids Natural Health and Jenny Tanis Counseling & Yoga have decided to intentionally create a safe space for you to explore mindful breath and movement in a community of people who understand your struggle. Come experience a gentle yoga class that will aid in relaxation, increase blood circulation and energy flow, balance hormone levels, and promote self-love. Then, choose to stay after and be in community with others navigating their own personal fertility journey.

During the Yoga for Community series, Counselor and Yoga Teacher, Jenny Tanis, will lead you through a gentle yoga class designed specifically to help address your current concern. Jenny will share with you the physical and emotional benefits of the movement and breath-work so that you can incorporate them into your daily routine. 


Additional resources and community support information will be provided. Following class, if you feel comfortable, you are invited to stay for tea and snacks and connect with other individuals who are navigating a similar journey. There is medicine in “me too”. Join us and find the healing power of a compassionate community.

RSVP online or by calling (616) 264-6556. Admission is $10. Please email Jenny Tanis, LMSW, RYT 200 with any questions jtanis@grnaturalhealth.com.
