Event description

Description

Yoga of 12-Step Recovery is a mindful, holistic approach to recovery from behavioral addictions to substance abuse, as well as those who are impacted by a loved one’s addiction. We begin with a dogma-free, supportive sharing circle and then transition into an all-levels, gentle yoga and meditation class.

Based on the philosophy that "the issues live in the tissues," we aim to release tension from the body and break free of patterns that no longer serve us. Through practice we develop strength, resiliency, and peace of mind so we can recover well.

Informed by the latest research in neuroscience and trauma healing, Y12SR combines the somatic approach of yoga with the cognitive approach of the 12-step recovery model – the most well-known addiction recovery program in the world, with millions of active practitioners.

Although the 12-Steps provide a framework for our gathering, association with the 12-Step fellowship is not necessary. The only requirement for attending Y12SR is a desire to recover...and perhaps a curious, open mind.

Lead by Chelsea Rappel, RYT500, Somatic Yoga Therapist, and Recovery Coach. Feel free to reach out to Chelsea with questions or curiosities by emailing yogaforthejourney@gmail.com.

This is a safe, friendly environment. Prior yoga experience is not necessary. All "A's" welcome!
