Yoga of 12-Step Recovery
Wednesday from 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR) is a unique mind-body practice that is gaining recognition throughout the United States, Canada, and internationally for its effectiveness in reducing relapse for people in recovery from addictions.
The sessions are open to anyone dealing with their own addictive behaviours or affected by the behaviour of others. Each Y12SR session includes a group sharing circle modeled after the meetings of 12-step addiction recovery programs and an all-levels yoga class.
Based on the theme, “The issues live in our tissues,” Y12SR pairs the practical tools of 12-step programs with the traditions and science of yoga. 12-step programs approach addiction at the cognitive level. Yoga includes a somatic approach and combining the two creates a model that truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental and spiritual disease that it is.
Sessions are drop-in (pre-registration is NOT required) and cost is by donation.
All Levels Welcome
