Yoga for Recovery

See Dis-ease from a Holistic Perspective
For those familiar with any 12-Step Program, the most remarkable aspect of these is that only the first of the twelve steps mentions the addictive substance or act. Sobriety/abstinence is described as a “daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition”.

Yoga For Recovery
See Dis-ease from a Holistic Perspective
• The 12-Step Programs (based on the “Big Book”by Bill W.)
see Addiction (Dis-ease) as a Spiritual Malady
• Yoga says Dis-ease is Spiritual Ignorance.
• Ayurveda sees Dis-ease comes from forgetting our true nature is spirit
For those familiar with any 12-Step Program, the most remarkable aspect of these is that only the first of the twelve steps mentions the addictive substance or act. Sobriety/abstinence is described as a “daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition”. Our opportunity for genuine spiritual fulfillment is strengthened when we weave together the ancient wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda with the practical tools of recovery programs. I this workshop we view the problem and the solution from the perspective of Mind, Body and Spirit.

Hatha Yoga for Recovery - Develop the body, broaden your mental faculties & spiritual capacities
All Levels | Saturday June 11, 2016, 12:30– 1:40pm
12-Step programs propose a spiritual remedy and only offer a little advice for the physical dimension of healing from addiction. One very important aspect of this is Hatha yoga – the asanas and breathing exercises. During this class, you will practice yogic physical exercises – asanas (suitable for all levels) along with Pranayama (breathing exercises) and conscious relaxation. All this helps to develop not only the body, but also to broaden your mental faculties and spiritual capacities. Yoga exercises improve the health of the spine and aid the proper function of the internal organs, restoring health and balance to the entire system.
Open Meditation and 12-Step Meeting
Saturday June 11, 2016, 1:45– 2:30pm (Any 12-Stepper welcome)
Our meetings focus on the 11th Step:
‘Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.’ Many people say that they can’t meditate because of discomfort in the body and/or a busy mind. This is because the proper preparation hasn’t take place.
Join Deanna for an afternoon of movement, breath, mediation, prayer and recovery!
