Program: Yoga of 12 Step Recovery
Y12SR is a 12-Step based discussion and yoga practice. It is a rich and powerful framework for integrating the wisdom of yoga and the practical tools of 12-step programs. Meetings are open, inclusive and ‘universal’ (all "A's" are welcome). Groups are for anyone and everyone dealing with their own addictive behaviour or affected by the addictive behaviours of others.
Guided by its theme “The Issues Live in our Tissues” Y12SR recognizes that yoga and its practices are a part of a holistic recovery program and rather than a replacement, it provides adjunct tools to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction.
