Yoga of Recovery Retreats and Counselors Training

Yoga of Recovery is a retreat (a training course for Counselors is also available)integrating the wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda with the tools of 12 Step Recovery.

In the Tools of Recovery we discuss the many similarities between the ethical and lifestyle foundations of Classical Yoga with those of the 12-Step Programs. Combining the Yogic psychology of how to deal with the mind and the Yogic philosophy of the Self with the practice of the principles of the 12 steps, alongside an Ayurvedic lifestyle offers a sure path from self-destruction to Self-realization - one day at a time. During the retreat you can also participate in daily open 12-Step Meetings, where we talk about our experience, strength and hope in regard to any addictive habit we are recovering from. It is refreshing to be in a group that has the opportunity to discuss a cross-range of addictions like this – it allows us to share in a broader way and helps us develop more openness and compassion around both our own lingering compulsions and the struggles of people with differ
