2 New wonderful programs coming.Yoga Alliance Grounded by Yoga

Here is one. More details coming in February.

200RYT with Addiction, Recovery and Trauma Focus

Yoga is a wonderful practice for people who are recovering from an addictions and traumas. Abusing alcohol and drugs always means that people lose touch with their bodies, minds and the connection to spirit. By practicing these techniques, they can once again become comfortable in their own skin.  The practice can help these individuals cope with life more easily, see with clarity and live in light.
In 12 Step programs, they say that addiction is a threefold disease. It is viewed as mental, physical, and spiritual in nature. Yoga is a unique practice because it is able to benefit the individual in all these areas. All addictions are based on traumas and weave all three focuses into our learnings. See below and THIS PAGE for more information (again, we are under construction and will have the info complete by the end of February)
