Yoga of 12-Step Recovery
Thursdays, starting September 27, 7:30-8:30 PM
Free Info Session Sunday, September 9, 4-5 PM
Y12SR is an innovative addiction relapse prevention program that integrates the wisdom of yoga and the practical tools of 12-Step recovery programs. Guided by its theme “The Issues Live In the Tissues,” Y12SR meetings are offered throughout the U.S. and abroad and is quickly becoming a feature of addiction recovery treatment centers.
Y12SR is a meeting and a yoga practice. The time is divided between a 12-Step-like sharing circle followed by a movement, breath and meditation practice, where we “take it to the mats.” The yoga portion is designed to be accessible to all bodies and levels of experience.
Y12SR is open to all persons who suffer with addiction (all ‘A’s” are welcome!) as well as to those who love them. It is offered as an adjunct — not a replacement — to regular addiction recovery work. Y12SR recognizes that yoga and its practices are a part of a holistic recovery program and rather than a replacement, it provides additional tools to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction.
This group is open to all-- no experience in 12-Steps or yoga is necessary. Individuals who feel traditional 12-Step groups haven't worked, folks who might not know where they fit in the recovery process, and people who feel confused by the addictive behaviors of others are all warmly welcome in this safe, non-judgmental and confidential space.
