Y12SR combines the practical tools of the 12-step program with the ancient wisdom of Yoga. Combining the two creates a model that truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental & spiritual dis-ease that it is. Y12SR is a 12-step based discussion and Yoga practice open to anyone and everyone dealing with their own addictive behavior or affected by the addictive behavior of others. This is an open and inclusive group. All A’s are welcome. Wear comfortable clothing. Meetings are by donation. All levels of yogis welcome as the yoga portion is done at a slower, restorative pace.
This is in no way a replacement for 12 step programs, a sponsor or any other addiction therapy. It is offered as another “tool” to help and support us on the path of continued recovery.
Micaela ‘Miki’ Garzoni has been practicing yoga intensely since 2009. She has an unwavering passion for all that is Yoga, concentrating on Vinyasa and Yin Yoga; the ancient scriptures – in particular the Yoga Sutras; chanting; and Mantra recitation. She has been meditating since 2013 and loves to bring this practice to the inmates at MCI Concord by teaching the Path of Freedom, a 12-week Mindfulness Based Emotional Intelligence program for prisoners. Miki has completed two 200 hour yoga teacher trainings: one with Rolf Gates in 2014 and more recently, one with Jacqui Bonwell in 2016. In June 2016, she completed her training with Nikki Meyers as a leader for Y12SR – The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery. In long term recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol, Miki wants to bring healing and yoga to anybody touched by addictions in her community. A mother of three and grandmother of one, Miki is dedicated to her family; her German Shepherd Giulietta; and her Friesian horse Kosmo. In the evening, Miki loves to knit and weave, and read books on yoga and recovery.
