Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12sr) offers a rich and powerful framework for addiction recovery and relapse prevention. Y12SR “connects the dots” between the ancient wisdom of yoga and the practical tools of 12-step programs. As part of a holistic recovery program, it works in tandem with traditional treatment to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction. The program serves people recovering from all manifestations of addiction, from behavioral addictions to substance abuse – creating a safe place on the mat. The program supports those who are impacted by a loved one’s addiction.
