Between the Mat and the Meeting: Ayurveda for Addictions
Embody health in recovery from all addictive disorders, (substances, food/sugar and behaviors) through Ayurveda, framed in the most accessible, relatable and practical way. Address the needs and vulnerabilities that underlie these habits with pioneering look at our stress-response tendencies. We’ll look at our ‘acting out’ tendencies, and how physical practices and daily routines can widen the window of tolerance. We come to deeper self-understanding and self-regulation for resilience one day at a time.
Yoga of Recovery works with everyone whose lives have been affected by addiction, in themselves or loved ones – people who have sex addiction, eating disorders, codependents with no substance abuse, and others where substance abuse is present but it is not the primary presenting issue. The program is also open to anyone who wants to learn lifestyle and stress management skills.
Health and recovery from addiction and disease involve fully living in the wholeness that you are. By recognizing your innate strengths you can learn to revitalize your body’s systems rather than to depend on addictive, unhealthy behaviors. Build a strong foundation for 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.
The program is an integration of the philosophy and psychology of yoga and Ayurveda – offering many physical practices to allow us to embody our recovery pathway.
