Modeled from the meetings of 12-step programs, the Yoga of 12- Step Recovery is a group-sharing circle followed by a intentional, themed yoga class. Y12SR combines the practical tools of the 12-step program with the ancient wisdom of yoga. Y12SR is a 12-step based discussion and yoga practice that is open to anyone and everyone dealing with their own addictive behavior or affected by the addictive behavior of others. This is an open and inclusive group. All A'a are welcome.
The 12-step program approaches addiction at a cognitive level, yoga includes a somatic approach. The combining of the two creates a model that truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental and spiritual disease that it is. Yoga of 12-Step Recovery recognizes that yoga and its practices are a part of a holistic recovery program and rather than a replacement, it provides adjunct tools to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction.
