Yoga of Recovery: Between the Mat and the Meeting
Ayurvedic Healing for All Addictive Tendencies
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. Build a strong foundation of living well, and learn about stress, digestion, sleep hygiene, and detoxification. Practice deep self-care and emotional regulation through simple Ayurvedic daily routines that you can practice at home.
Optional 12-step meetings will also be offered throughout the course.
We require alcohol/chemically dependent guests to have at least three months (90days) of continuous sobriety. Those with eating disorders and behavioral addictions (relationships, gambling, spending etc.) should have enough stability to embark on this particular work.
This retreat is part of a longer, in-depth certification program suitable for professionals and coaches who work with those on journeys of recovery.

The Yoga Farm is located in the foothills of California’s Sierra Mountains, situated in the heart of California’s Mother Lode Country. It is surrounded by rolling hills, forests of oak and pine, and clear streams. Here are 70 acres of secluded peace and solitude, where the sounds of nature soothe the mind and body – ideal for yoga retreats and meditation.
In spring and summer yoga classes are held on the outdoor deck shaded by a grove of oak trees. You can take a meditative walk in our Peace Miracle Labyrinth; casual, contemplative walks around the beautiful 40 acres, and the adjacent 30 acres or hike the 108 steps to Siva hill. A cedar sauna is open year round.Pleasant, simple lodging in dorms, double occupancy rooms or cabins. Our cabins are set on the hillside overlooking the pond and surrounded by the natural beauty of the ashram, providing total peace and tranquility. If you prefer to sleep closer to nature in the fresh, clean open air you can bring your own camping gear.
