Bimonthly Y12SR, Yoga of 12 Step Recovery — 2nd/4th Sundays


Yoga of 12 Step Recovery

2nd & 4th Sunday of each month

with Ed Blouin

7:00-8:30pm Midtown at 474 Broadway
Donation based (pay what you can)

Y12SR is an innovative addiction relapse prevention program that integrates the wisdom of yoga and the practical tools of 12-Step recovery programs. Guided by its theme “The Issues Live In the Tissues,” Y12SR is a meeting and a yoga practice. The time together will include a 12-Step-like sharing circle, and a yoga asana (movement), pranayama (breathwork) and meditation session. The yoga asana practice offered is designed to be accessible to all bodies and levels of yoga experience.

Y12SR is open to all persons who suffer with addiction as well as to those who love them. This is an open and inclusive group. EVERYONE is welcome. You do not have to be a member of a 12-step group to attend. It is offered as an adjunct — not a replacement — to regular addiction recovery work. The principles of safety and anonymity are upheld by Y12SR.
