Yoga of 12Step Recovery brings together the best of both worlds, combining the ancient wisdom of yoga with the practical tools of the 12-Steps. Y12SR Yoga includes a recovery themed, gentle practice, exploring movement and breath, followed by a 12-Step inspirational topic discussion. Any behavior we continuously do and get the SAME unsuccessful results is explored as an addiction in Y12SR.
Through doing the investigative work of Y12SR Yoga we learn how to cultivate new thoughts, patterns, and behaviors. Classes are open to all persons overcoming any addictions; behavioral, substance, or those affected by any addictive tendencies. We begin with a grounded introspective practice then move into an inspirational topic discussion meeting. If you would like to know more about Y12SR.
If you are breathing and moving you are doing yoga! Chair Yoga is a lovely form of yoga. for a beginner, a person with limited mobility, even an experienced yogi interested in broadening their practice. Pranayama (breathwork), and meditation are explored during our chair practice. Chair yoga increases flexibility, strength, body awareness, and aids in calming the mind. Postures are performed while seated or with the aid of a chair. Any traditional yoga posture can be modified to be done in a chair, on your sofa, or on a bed. We explore together, twists, joint mobility, flexibility, strengthening of the core, hip openers, and forward folds.
This slow and stretchy practice allows your body to wake up gently. We focus on lengthening the fascia, the connective tissue, beneath the skin that shrinks while we sleep. Classes are themed around what you, my lovely students, feel like your bodies are needing on this Saturday morning. I invite you to notice and explore what your body is craving. I enjoy offering you many options encouraging you to make this practice as gentle or strenuous as you would like.
