“The first thing you have to do is really FEEL your feeling.
You can’t heal what you don’t feel in grief, we have trouble with this.”
– David Kessler, World-Renowned Grief Expert and author of Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief
The intensity and range of emotions that arise after a loss can leave you feeling paralyzed and powerless. You might want to avoid or suppress these feelings, because you might fear that your pain will be all-consuming and never-ending.
Unfortunately, grief never goes away. You can’t heal what you don’t feel.
My desire is to help you embrace common emotions experienced while grieving and learn to befriend them as a guide to healing.
Talking about it grief is one approach, but I found that fully embodying my emotions through movement helped me take back control in a world where I had lost it, and ultimately keep moving forward with life.
The problem with traditional grief therapy (ie. talking about it) is that trauma is stored in our bodies. Research suggests that organs, tissues, skin, muscle and endocrine glands all have peptide receptors on them and can access and store emotional information. This means that emotional memory is stored in many places in the body! — not just or even primarily, in the brain. So verbalizing our emotions in traditional grief therapy can be really difficult when we’re just FEELING it!
Furthermore, when the nervous system is stuck in a state of hyperactivity, our flight or fight survival response gets caught in a loop. We feel frozen and feelings of anxiety, overwhelm, sadness and guilt become all encompassing. All of our attention is then fixed on negative thought patterns and we get stuck in them.
So what do we do when our mind is convincing us that we are incapable of moving forward?
We prove it wrong by moving our bodies!
JAN 17 – FEB 25
LIVE Group Grief Coaching sessions every FRIDAY from 12-1pm MST
moveTHRU Grief LIVE is a 6-week program that teaches you how to feel your emotions and make helpful mindset shifts to move forward with your life after a loss.
Each week, the group completes 1-2 modules from the moveTHRU Online Course and then meets every Friday from 12-1pm MST to discuss questions and takeaways. The weekly zoom sessions provide not only accountability to complete course content, but also a safe space for grief to be witnessed and for you to feel seen and supported during this difficult time.
This online course walks you through my moveTHRU Method (outlined below) to embrace eight common emotions and feelings that arise during the grieving process.
Motivation is our reason(s) for acting or behaving in a particular way. When it comes to grief, we invite you to explore how and why a feeling or emotion is coming up for you?
Instead of suppressing or pretending the feeling or emotion doesn’t exist, we encourage you to acknowledge it. Own it!
Feelings and emotions exist for a reason, and often they arise as a natural response to a loss. It’s ok (if not totally natural!) to feel this way.
Sometimes verbalizing grief is hard. Let’s experience your emotions and feel your feelings in a safe, supportive environment through movement.
Sometimes we need an example. Someone else who has felt our pain and walked our path. We feel you, we support you, and together, we empower one another to moveTHRU grief.
The loss of a loved one is devastating and there is no way to bypass the pain. We invite you to honor your tragedy, your grief, your timeline and your process.
When we give ourselves permission to feel our feelings and experience our emotions, we begin to view our loss from a different lens — finding new meaning and finally …
Our feelings and emotions are telling us something — it’s up to us to listen! Our final step is to uncover any takeaways or lessons from moving THRU grief.
Whether you believe that you are capable of moving forward from tragedy or not, the mere act of exercising moves you. You body physiologically changes when you workout, and no matter how devastated, how paralyzed, or how hopeless your circumstances might feel, your biochemistry has shifted!
Up until now, my online course has only been offered as a self-paced study program and in my 12-week Growing THRU Grief program. Here’s what my clients have had to say about their experience:
When I began my journey with moveTHRU grief it had been about 7 months since my husband died. Up until this point I was just surviving by “avoiding” any emotions and finding things to fill the void he left behind. My heart was aching as the reality of the permanency of his death was setting in and the “shock” was wearing off. I knew I needed to get some help from the outside to help me navigate through my grief and these emotions I had been trying so hard to avoid.
I had come across a few courses but Emily’s caught my eye the most because of the fitness aspect. Working out was already a part of my daily routine so I thought it would be a good fit. And it was! Through the course I learned how to really feel my emotions, lean into and sit in them, allow them to come in and move through me. Most importantly my feelings were validated not only by Emily but everyone in our group.
I still use the tools I learned through the course and guided workouts and apply them when I go for a run or strength train. I highly recommend moveTHRU Grief course and group.
Even if you don’t like to workout, if you are afraid or intimidated by the idea of being on live coaching calls, I want to encourage you to take that leap today. You are not alone but surrounded by Emily and others who are walking in the same space as you are right now. This course is truly one of a kind. Created by a compassionate understanding kind person who has a heart that wants to motivate and teach you how thrive and grow stronger as you move forward in your grief.
– Karen, Growing THRU Grief
– Kaitlin, Growing THRU Grief
The move THRU course was a powerful tool that allowed me to process my grief after the loss of my daughter. It gave me freedom and space to feel all the emotions that came up in my grief journey. The course was so valuable because it allowed me to move my body to the specific emotion that I was feeling. After each section I gained skills to help me cope with my grief, but still honor my daughter.
Before the course I struggled to find space and time to process my grief with my busy schedule, I could never commit to a set schedule or grief group. The course allowed me to set aside time in my day when it worked best for me and work through the emotions I was feeling as well as honor my loved one.
Before moveTHRU I was lost as to how to deal with my grief, especially the anxiety I would feel throughout the day. After starting the course I felt a complete shift in my mindset, I felt more at peace and empowered to handle the emotions that came up surrounding the loss of my daughter. The course gave me the tools I needed to move forward in a positive way, but also still honor my daughter.
– Lindsey, moveTHRU Grief Self-Study
I am the type of person who tends to avoid my feelings. I tend to go about my day telling everyone (mostly myself) that I’m fine and if I say it enough it’s true right? The fact of the matter is, grief always catches up to you, hard. You can’t avoid it. The moveTHRU Grief course has forced me to stop and take some time to actually sit with my feelings, address them, understand them, connect with others in grief who are going through the same feelings and then work through them. Every time I finish up a module, I always feel better than when I started it.
– Kelsea, moveTHRU Grief Self-Study
MoveTHRU came at such an interesting time in my grief journey. I was 3 + Years out from losing my brother and had processed in so many ways but I had just moved back to Colorado where we grew up together and shared so much. It helped me process tricky emotions like anger before they bubbled up unknowingly. I also love being able to dedicate time to missing and grieving him but in a way that allows my body to release some of the negative energy.
The course enabled me to see how different aspects of grief play into my daily life and change with the seasons. It helped me prepare much like you would your closet as summer comes to an end you get the blankets and sweaters out I know what seasons bring up different emotions in my grief. I am so grateful for Emily creating a program that takes movement and applies it to the heartbreaking, expansive journey grief is.
– Kim, moveTHRU Grief Self-Study
moveTHRU has given me a safe place to be myself, grieve my loss, connect with others, and move through the feelings. It has really opened my eyes to how grief manifests physically in the body.
– Gina, moveTHRU Grief Self-Study
My workout with moveTHRU was a really powerful experience. Having been through traditional conversational therapy to cope with my brother’s passing, it was incredibly refreshing to sweat and work through those feelings without having to talk about how I’m feeling. I felt so empowered afterwards.
– Abby, moveTHRU Grief Self-Study
moveTHRU is the safe place that I’ve been looking for ever since I lost my first loved one. It is an environment that is welcoming to all emotions, to all types of people, and to all types of loss experiences. There was no “barrier to entry” or uncomfortable feeling upon joining, theater there was an immediate sense of inclusion and support from the community members. After losing multiple loved ones in my life, it ironically feels “good” to have found others that understand the pain, sadness and anger that reside with the journey of grief.
– Miki, moveTHRU Grief Self-Study
My online course includes over 50+ videos of intention-based exercises and written prompts to help you embody your emotions and embrace grief. You can access it on your desktop or any type of mobile device.
There are many ways to navigate a loss and move forward. However, there is one universal need for every griever; and that is for their grief to be witnessed.
The group will kickoff on Monday, January 17 with a BONUS meet & greet call at 12pm MST and proceed with LIVE group coaching sessions via ZOOM every Friday from 12pm-1pm MST.
The live sessions will hold everyone accountable for completing course content and will also serve as a safe space to discuss content takeaways, ask questions and share any struggles or concerns that are coming up. I’ll provide gentle grief guidance and together, we will determine the best path forward.
I’ve created downloadable PDF’s that you can easily access as a quick guide to move THRU each emotion. These include BONUS workouts to do at home! If you feel an emotion coming up for you, instead of revisiting all of the content in the course, you can download these guides to quickly find:

I never would have chosen a career in grief & loss.
You could say that this profession chose me.
After my husband died from Uveal Melanoma in March 2019, I turned to exercise to cope with my emotions and started sharing about my loss on social media to process my loss and have my grief witnessed. Very quickly, I started to create new meaning out of my tragedy by helping others heal.
I founded my company moveTHRU in December 2019 as a monthly community workout to help others (and me!) cope with grief. In two years, it’s evolved into full-blown online grief coaching business.
I’ve worked with hundreds of clients in my private & free coaching groups and reached millions of followers through my social media content on TikTok (100k+ followers) and Instagram (~5k followers).
My goal is to help anyone who has experienced a loss embrace grief through movement, mindset, and by connecting with a community who understands.
My coaching programs and content draw from my my Grief Educator Certification through David Kessler at grief.com, Grief Coaching courses through the Institute of Life Coaching, Acceptance & Commitment Theory, Positive Psychology and my own personal grief journey.
I would love to move THRU grief with you.
