This 6 week course is for anyone in recovery from the white chip to the anniversary chip and anyone looking to overcome self-destructive or addictive tendencies. Family members of addicts, yoga teachers, therapists and counselors will also find this workshop helpful.
Yoga of Recovery combines Yoga, Ayurveda and 12-step principles to create a holistic approach to recovery. Over the 6 weeks the 6 Tenets of Recovery will be discussed starting with Life is Longing and ending with Life is Progress. A yoga asana practice will also be done each week (suitable for all levels) to bring balance and calm into the body as well as yoga nidra to relax. Chitra has over 13 years experience teaching yoga and offers a wide variety of techniques for depression and anxiety. A portion of the 90 minute class each week will be focused on Step 11, meditation sitting postures and practice.
This 6 week course will be offered Thursdays, 7:00-8:30pm from October 13th through November 17th. A full paying series is $66 and the course is available on a sliding scale (based on income).
The course will require a minimum of 8 people to be signed up. If we haven’t hit the minimum we will contact those already signed up so we can all have a chance to recruit a friend or two in the last few days. This class is capped at 16 participants.
