Yoga of Recovery MODULE: Between the Mat and the Meeting
About This Event
For everyone, including Yoga teachers and health professionals
Health and recovery from addiction and disease involve fully living in the wholeness that you are. By recognizing your innate strengths and stress-response tendencies, you can learn to revitalize your body’s systems rather than to depend on addictive, unhealthy behaviors.
In this Module, you will learn:
Ayurvedic healing tools for all addictive tendencies
Teachings to build a strong foundation for living well, including discussions on stress, digestion, sleep, hygiene, and detoxification
Practices for deep self-care and emotional regulation through simple Ayurvedic daily routines that you can practice at home
Optional 12-step meetings will be offered throughout the course.
If circumstances prevent you from taking the entire module, you have the option to register for Yoga of Recovery®–WEEKEND, on June 18–21, 2020.
Open to all. We suggest at least three months of continuous sobriety for alcohol/chemically dependent guests, as we are not a medical/detox facility. Please contact us if you feel able to attend in your early sobriety—we’d like to ensure that the retreat is the best option for you. Those with eating disorders or behavioral addictions should have enough stability to embark on this work.
Yoga of Recovery® – Module: Between the Mat and the Meeting is part of a longer, in-depth certification program suitable for professionals and coaches who work with those on journeys of recovery. Each Module is a stand-alone course.
