Yoga for 12 Step Recovery
Y12SR is a unique program that blends the principles of a 12-step program with the ancient wisdom of yoga. Y12SR addresses issues such as addiction, trauma and codependency to name a few. The mantra for Y12SR is: “The issues live in our tissues”. There is a direct connection between body, mind & spirit; the core of yoga is UNION; a meeting of all of these elements. Addiction can plainly be seen as the “dis-ease of the lost self”. Yoga can bring YOU back to YOU. While Y12SR is no substitute for therapy, these sessions can give you the tools to accept the circumstances affecting your life no matter the cause and create pathways to balance and authenticity.
