Taught by Durga Leela and resident Swamis of the Yoga Farm. Guest comment from previous course … “My experience at the ashram taught me so much about myself and provided me with discipline around my yoga. Swami Sitaramananda provided deep wisdom on yoga philosophy with so much sacred space and presence–I was able to go deep in my own explorations in every class that she taught. Durga Leela provided such depth, humility, and practical wisdom on Ayurveda. She was able to convey the foundation of this amazing science with humor and practicality. I’m not sure I would’ve ever been able to receive this wisdom through any book (because I have read many on this topic!). Durga was able to demonstrate the yogic life through her interactions with Swami, her gentle kindness and humility with students, her flexibility balanced with discipline, and her pure joy for life. I am honored to have been her student.”

Yoga of Recovery: Addressing the Root Cause of Addictive Tendencies
Yoga of Recovery invites us to undertake heartfelt self-reflection around our various addictive processes and guide us on how to utilize the many healing aspects of the vedic sciences in the recovery process.
We’ll look at our own story – to trace the roots of our addictive behaviors. This approach appeals to all types of people … those in long-term recovery, those reluctant to call themselves an ‘addict’, those who prefer secular self-help programs over the 12-steps, those who are not sure they have ‘addiction’ but know they need help with some aspect of their life, those who ‘do’ yoga, those who ‘can’t do yoga” – EVERYONE!
Let’s change our story from one of suffering to one of healing – making use of yogic practices that appeal to our emotional temperament – physical practice, devotional practices, self enquiry techniques, psychology and philosophy. You’ll also love the Ayurvedic tools – the science of self healing, helping us to EMBODY our recovery : )
- Daily practice of Amrit Yoga and/or Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra
- The Roots of our Addictive Personalities/behaviors (6 Tenets of YoR
- Chronic stress response – your stress signature (Gunas and Doshas – Restless, Irritable, Discontent – Hospitals, Jail & Institutions to Happy, Joyous and Free)
- Emotional Regulation through simple sense self soothing techniques (Life is Sweet – Sattvic sweet self care suggestions)
- Cause of disease from holistic perspective
- Facilitating community conversations about the problem and the solution
Yoga of Recovery for Counselors Training Certification Course
Yoga Alliance Certification
CEUs available – Email to inquire
About The Course: Yoga of Recovery is the first comprehensive course to combine Ayurveda and Yoga with traditional recovery tools to offer a more holistic mind, body, spirit approach to addiction and self-destructive behaviors.
This course is for therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, sponsors, yoga teachers, Ayurvedic practitioners etc. Anyone interested in a more holistic and complete view of the problem and its solution. Bringing the west (12 Steps) and the East (Yoga and Ayurveda) together offers us a truly empowering approach to counseling those who embark on a program of recovery. It is the evolution of the solution.
Upon completion of the course you will have the skills to introduce the healing potential of the holistic sciences of Ayurveda and Yoga into your own life and those around you.
For those in counseling roles the course will offer you additional tools and a deeper understanding of the comprehensive approach to wellness, emotional sobriety and sustained spiritual development using Ayurveda and Yoga as extension therapies to any 12 Step work. If you are already a Yoga teacher, this course will make you uniquely qualified and more confident to teach yoga in rehabs or to people in recovery from any addiction. You will fully understand the root of the problem and the holistic approach, extended from limited understanding of substance abuse/behavioral problems to be treated with asana alone, to a full range of therapies for mind, body and spirit from these powerful healing modalities.
Course students will practice hatha yoga 2 hours per day, the class will be suitable for all levels. This course does not qualify you as a hatha yoga teacher, it simply brings you to the awareness and experience of its benefits, within the context of the wider framework of yogic psychology and philosophy and the healing aspects of Ayurveda.
· Causes of disease from the Ayurvedic perspective and its relation to addiction.
· Addictive tendencies of each doshic type and their underlying needs and vulnerabilities.
· Likely damage caused and some simple suggestions for balance.
· Simple, practical methods to revitalize the body’s systems and boost the immune system such as proper daily and seasonal routines.
· How to be ‘established in the self’ – the best way to strengthen ongoing recovery.

Tools of Recovery workshops:
Become able to correlate and discuss the many similarities between the foundations of Classical Yoga and those of the 12 Step Programs. This course expands your awareness and understanding of the 4 Paths of Yoga and how these spiritual practices can be integrated with the tools of 12 Step Programs.
Open 12-step meetings:
Many people who work in the field of recovery are themselves in recovery. Here we talk about our experience, strength and hope around any addictive habits that we are recovering from. This helps us develop more openness and compassion around both our own lingering compulsions and the struggle of different ‘drug of choice’ than ours. These meetings will also be a very beneficial experience for those not in recovery, to see what meetings are like, what their clients are involved with.
