Addiction Management & Recovery

~Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu- May All Beings Everywhere Be Free From Suffering~

Globally, we live in a society in which the majority of us are regularly seeking something outside ourselves. Whether it’s a substance or a behavior, many of us are, in fact, addicted to something. Through Yoga, we can learn to develop and draw upon our inner resources, helping to put space between thought and action and to move toward optimal wellbeing.

I am always particularly interested in supporting individuals and small groups around examining and addressing limiting habits & behaviors. Please reach out if you'd like more information about working together.

Yoga of Recovery Cohort Series

Next series date TBA- Please reach out if you are interested & I will keep you updated!

This is an 8 week series consisting of weekly 90 minute small group Yoga therapy sessions. It is open to anyone with a desire to examine and address limiting behaviors and thought patterns around addiction to substances and/or processes & habits. No prior experience with Yoga is required.

The classes will incorporate Ayurveda and multiple Yoga modalities- including movement, breath, mantra and guided meditation- and will be recorded for participants to download and keep for self-practice and reference. (rest assured, only the facilitator will be recorded to provide confidentiality amongst the participants.)

The first portion of each session will include a reading and opportunity for group check-in and discussion.

Participants will be sent a survey prior to the series and have the opportunity for a 20 minute 1:1 intake session, enabling them to ask any questions and the facilitator to tailor the practices to best meet the needs of the group.

Each participant will also receive a personalized Yoga therapy plan document and access to a Slack channel to encourage check ins, community-building and resource shares throughout and after the series. Additionally, there will be opportunity to book further 1:1 Yoga therapy sessions with the facilitator.

This offering will be capped at 12 participants to prioritize intimacy.

In an effort to make high-quality offerings accessible to everyone I use a sliding scale or tiered pricing system for classes, workshops, & private sessions. Please choose the price that works for your current budget while also honoring the value you place on this class. If none of these options feels correct for you, please reach out to talk about what might. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Just as addiction takes many forms, there are many paths to recovery, and "recovery" itself looks different to different people.

In my own lived experience, I have found great support & growth in following the Buddhist-based model offered by Refuge Recovery.
