Take Root Rise Up
1 Barney Road #222 Clifton Park, NY
Stage Now|Taught by Debra Guarneri
Yoga for 12 step recovery is a program for anyone dealing with addictive behavior or affected by the addictive behavior of others. No matter what the nature of the addiction, all who seek recovery and serenity are welcome here. Y12SR combines the 12 steps of recovery with yoga practice to address the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual disease of addiction. The first half of each Y12SR class will involve learning and sharing in a safe and confidential space about how our addictions have become unmanageable. We then learn to use yoga as a tool to manage internal stress and prevent relapse. The yoga practice is a level one class with adaptions provided so that everyone will be able to participate. Together we will discover how combining the 12 steps of yoga can create a path back to wholeness, community,purpose, joy, and freedom.
