I completed both parts of Nikki Myers’ Yoga for 12-Step Recovery by Fall of 2016. I am seeking to be of service to 12-Step meeting leaders in Los Angeles, Long Beach, and surrounding communities who may wish to encourage those in recover to try out yoga within the guidelines of the 12-Step format.
From the website of Y12SR:
Y12SR “connects the dots” between the ancient wisdom of yoga, the practical tools of 12-step programs, and the latest research on trauma healing and neurobiology. As part of a holistic recovery program, it works in tandem with traditional treatment to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction.
Yoga for 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR) is a donation based class offering. A portion of every donation goes towards non-profits organizations such as Y12SR and Give Back Yoga Foundation.
I earnestly feel everyone ails from something that makes our lives unmanageable. Identifying with that aspect of the 12-steps tradition, I care to bring the practice of yoga as an adjunct – not a replacement – to regular 12-step meetings in the format of a Y12SR meeting.
If you are a 12-Step meeting leader, a group currently in or seeking recovery, or a studio owner wishing to bring a Y12SR meeting to you please send an email inquiry.
