I am proud to be certified Yoga of 12 Step Recovery (Y12SR) Leader. Y12SR “connects the dots” between the ancient wisdom of yoga, the practical tools of 12-step programs, and the latest research on trauma healing and neurobiology. As part of a holistic recovery program, it works in tandem with traditional treatment to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction.

The program serves people recovering from all manifestations of addiction, from behavioral addictions to substance abuse – creating a safe place on the mat where trauma can be released. It also supports those who are impacted by a loved one’s addiction.

Yoga has been a profound tool for me in my own recovery from alcohol addiction and I look forward to sharing this with you.  If you are struggling with addiction, please reach out. Know that you are never alone and there is a way out. As Laura McKowen says “you can’t do alone, but only you can do it.”

I facilitate a weekly Yoga of 12 Step Recovery (Y12SR) Meeting in Calgary. 

Meetings are held at the beautiful and inviting Mindful Somatic Wellness Studio, 210, 9715 Horton Road SW every Wednesday from 7:00-8:30 pm. Entry by donation with a suggested donation of $10, but know that you are always more important than your money. All are welcome.

Y12SR is a weekly discussion and movement class open to anyone and everyone dealing with their own addictive behavior or the addictive behavior of others.
