The first section of the training focuses on the understanding and application of yoga and the 12 steps.
Here we will:
- Explore the sources of addictive behavior
- Investigate yogic and 12-step principles as a foundation of recovery
- Recognize the symptomology of unresolved trauma and nervous system dys-regulation
- Discover sustainable ways for self-regulation that enhance physical, mental and spiritual well-being

- Create safe, sacred, open, and inclusive space that welcomes all dealing with their own addictive behaviors or are affected by the addictive behavior of others
- Use yoga and its practices to provide relapse prevention tools and sustainable ways to manage internal stress
- Take advantage of teachable moments, help resolve ambivalence and work with those who may be struggling emotionally
- Recognize the traps of projection, transference, countertransference, boundary violations and spiritual bypass
- Develop a network of professionals including trauma experts and others in the addiction recovery treatment field

Born from her personal struggle with addiction, Nikki is the founder of Y12SR: Yoga of 12-Step Recovery.
Based in its theme “the issues live in the tissues”, Y12SR is a relapse prevention program that weaves the art and science of yoga with the practical tools of 12-step programs.
