Join Maeve Ryan to try a safe, supportive yoga class at the library. Learn more about how Yoga of 12-Step Recovery “connects the dots” by combining the somatic approach of yoga with the cognitive approach of the 12-step recovery model. Yoga of 12-Step Recovery was created as a holistic model to address the physical, mental and spiritual dis-ease of addiction. Y12SR is informed by the latest research in neuroscience and trauma healing.
The characteristics and effects of addiction could easily be described as separation. Addictive behaviors disconnect us from ourselves, our loved ones, our environment and so much more. Conversely, yoga itself means union, integration, balance. Yoga teaches the fine art of balancing our multidimensional lives while living in a complex world.
*No yoga experience is necessary. You need not be affected by addiction to attend this class. Come with an open mind and comfy clothes you can move around in. Yoga mats will be provided.
