Yoga, a Medicine for Grief was created by Kim Hanlon and Ana Murphy. They both have been drawn to helping others through grief, as they themselves have had significant losses with subsequent life-altering grief. After meeting, they felt the pull to merge their areas of expertise to develop a healing workshop for others living with grief.

Ana Murphy, is a certified Yoga Instructor. She herself have found the benefits of yoga and meditation through her own grief process. She teaches yoga in two studios in Alameda, CA: "Yoga Alameda" and "Body Techniques".
