Addiction comes in all forms and is a family disease.  Nearly everyone is touched by addiction of some form whether it be alcohol, drugs, consumption, shopping, relationships, etc.   We all have the opportunity to recover and not only survive but thrive.  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 know that you are never alone and there is a way out. 

 I am thrilled to be a certified Y12SR leader and offer weekly meetings.  The details are as follows:

 

Yoga of 12 Step Recovery (Y12SR)

Wednesdays – 7:30-9:00 pm @ Journey Yoga 811 1 Avenue NE 

No charge for this class but a donation is welcomed.  Suggested donation $10

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.

 

I will also be teaching yoga at the Recovery Day Calgary event which is on Sunday, September 8 from 11am-4pm.  This event will be held at Poppy Plaza which is along the Bow River at Memorial Drive and 10th Street NW.  Come visit me at my booth too!
