Trauma-Informed Resilient Yoga for All Addictions: Embracing the Path of Joyful Recovery!

January 19 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Saturday, January 19, 1 – 4 PM


Did you know that over 25 million Americans have addictions, according to the NIH National Institute on Drug Abuse, yet only 10 percent receive proper treatment? Did you know that 90 percent of people begin their substance abuse under the age of 18?

This workshop is open to anyone interested in how trauma-informed yoga can support a more joyful recovery process. The 12-Step System focus is expanding and recognizing that unresolved traumas held in the body need to be brought into the healing of addiction. Resilience, the process of adapting well in the face of daily stress, needs to be cultivated when a person is completely abstaining from an addiction. Yoga supports resilience, in that the practice gives tools of self-regulation and self-soothing that are accessible any time and in any place.

Learn about the science of trauma and how yoga has always been a therapeutic system that addresses the suffering of the obsessive mind. Experience an all-inclusive trauma-informed yoga practice that will be done using the support of a chair. Many people in addictions recovery report that they can’t do yoga because they aren’t flexible. If you have always wanted to try yoga, chair yoga is a safe place to begin! You will walk away with yogic tools to befriend the body, breathing exercises to aid in emotional balance and a guided meditation for positive self esteem and wholeness!

The overall goal and hope of this workshop is to help you to develop a resilient yoga practice of self-care that you can do anywhere: at home, in your car, at your work, even in a 12-step meeting – a practice that nurtures your mind, your body, and your breath. These tools are a must for anyone in early recovery and for those that are still struggling with unresolved traumas and are in long-term recovery. The path of recovery can be more joyful with Resilient Yoga for All Addictions!
