"Y12SR is a 12-step based discussion and yoga practice open to anyone and everyone dealing with their own addictive behavior or affected by the addictive behavior of others. This is a open and inclusive group. All A’s are welcome.
In this group we weave together the ancient wisdom of yoga and the practical tools of 12-step programs. We recognize that the ‘issues live in our tissues’ and through our intentional, themed yoga practice, guided by our breath, we invoke the God of our understanding to help us release whatever is held."

Yoga and Recovery: S.O.A.R. Success Over Addiction and Relapse

Lecture and Discussion Series

Convergent Paths - 
Recovery and Yoga

There are three distinct workshops / presentations on the overlapping of the paths of Recovery and Yoga, the convergence of their philosophies and ways to blend the two into a wholesome practice of self re-discovery. An hour of all levels hatha yoga may be included.

Yoga of Recovery(tm) 

Yoga of Recovery(tm) speaker series is specifically designed to help those who suffer from addictions or are in relationship with someone who suffers from addictions.

The series will cover the 6 Tenets of Yoga of Recovery(tm) and the blending of Yogic, Ayurvedic and 12 Step philosophies to further recovery efforts.  The conclusion of the class will provide the attendee with specific tools and resources to enhance recovery on all levels - emotional, spiritual, and physical.  Come and expand your tool kit with these simple additions.

This course is appropriate for people in all paths of recovery, people who work with the recovering and yoga practitioners and teachers alike.

Please contact me to discuss these or other presentations for your studio, group or retreat.

Classes held in recovery houses and other locations are specific to them and their needs.

Please contact me directly if your organization or facility would like to schedule classes.  Yoga is an incredibly potent method to relax the body and calm the mind. Techniques learned in a yoga class can benefit the student in all stages of recovery.  Effective breathing can lead to conscious good choices, awareness of the body can lead to better control of feelings and responses.  Together the breath and body awareness contribute to relaxation and, ultimately, to stress reduction and meditation.
