This Yoga of Recovery® weekend is for those who are struggling and suffering. If you suspect that your current mode of living is unsustainable, if you feel the pain, stress, and loneliness of life, if you notice that there’s a range of behaviors and substances you resort to—whether it be drinking, gambling, shopping, acting out in relationships, abusing alcohol or illegal drugs and medications—and if you are ready to say, “I’m done with it!” then this program is for you.
Ayurveda helps us to recognize our impulsive behaviors and addictive tendencies as well as the needs and vulnerabilities that underlie them at the bio-psycho-social-spiritual levels.
In this Yoga of Recovery® program, you will:
- Discover ways to embody recovery and live an empowered life of emotional sobriety—one day at a time
- Promote self-healing by learning about your triggers and habits and identifying how these stem from, and are impacted by, time and environment
- Recognize your potential for stability and establish it by making use of simple, practical, stress-relieving and self-soothing daily routines
This Weekend Workshop is part of the Yoga of Recovery – Module B, June 21–28, 2018, a week-long, in-depth program that is part of YoR certification – suitable for everyone, especially yoga teachers and professionals and coaches who work with those on journeys of recovery.
Optional 12-step meetings will also be offered throughout the course.
Please note: we require alcohol/chemically dependent guests to have at least three months of continuous sobriety. Those with eating disorders and behavioral addictions (relationships, gambling, spending, etc.) should have enough stability to embark on this work.
Private Ayurvedic consultations and body treatments will also be available (additional fee and pre-booking required).
