Healing the Habits that Bind Online

Unpacking the 6 Tenets of YoR: Two Tenets at a Time

Each Tenet points to the Yoga pathway, perspective and practices
that best allows us to express our inherent desires in a more conscious way
with more internal awareness rather than externalized distractions and ‘fixes’

Three 9-week sessions (sign up for any one session, two or all three)

9/22/21 – 11/17/21: Longing & Relationship
12/1/21 – 2/2/22: Sweet & Love
2/9/22 – 4/6/22 Prana & Progress

The 6 Tenets of Yoga of Recovery offer a complete reframing of the addiction problem and solution according to the Vedic perspective.
This allows each of us to see our current involvement in the one addiction process that is alive and well within most of us.

We discover that right there, in the identification of the problem, lies its natural solution – without any need for stigma or shame. Self destructive behavior is already enough of a heavy burden to overcome.

YoR invites us to:

An investigation of a solution for You – NOW, wherever you are in your recovery journey;
A conversation about our ONE addiction process;
A process of creative self inquiry

What is Yoga of Recovery?

Yoga of Recovery (YoR) retreats integrate the wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda with the modern recovery ideas and the tools of 12-Step Recovery. It is open to all who are looking to overcome self-destructive or addictive tendencies.

For those familiar with any 12-Step Program, the most remarkable aspect of these is the fact that only the first of the twelve steps makes any mention of the addictive substance or act. Sobriety/abstinence is described as a “daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition”. Our opportunity for genuine spiritual fulfillment is strengthened when we weave together the ancient wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda with the practical tools of recovery programs. Together they offer us a truly empowering personal program of recovery. 12-Step Programs also recommend an “occasional retreat from the outside world where we can quiet down for an undisturbed day or so of self-overhaul and meditation”. Yoga of Recovery offers retreats in beautiful, peaceful locations where you can relax, recover, and rejuvenate.


Ayurvedic Consultations with Durga

Durga Leela

Yoga of Recovery® Founder
For those who have had an initial consultation during a Yoga of Recovery retreat, I offer follow-up visits over the phone or in person. It is best to have the first follow up visit within one month of the Initial Visit and about every 2 – 4 weeks thereafter, until balance is restored (perhaps over a 3 to 6 month period). During these visits we’ll discuss your progress, review any remaining symptoms and suggest the integration of more Ayurvedic lifestyle practices and Yogic techniques to calm and balance the mind and body.
