Between the Mat and the Meeting: A Retreat for People in Recovery from Addiction

$35.00 Investment ... Pre-registration is required.  Please call 609 647 2406 for more details.

For those familiar with any 12-Step Program, the most remarkable aspect of these is the fact that only the first of the twelve steps makes any mention of the addictive substance or act. Sobriety/abstinence is described as a “daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition”. Our opportunity for genuine spiritual fulfillment is strengthened when we weave together the ancient wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda with the practical tools of recovery programs. Together they offer us a truly empowering personal program of recovery. 12-Step Programs also recommend an “occasional retreat from the outside world where we can quiet down for an undisturbed day or so of self-overhaul and meditation”. Yoga of Recovery offers retreats in beautiful, peaceful locations where you can relax, recover, and rejuvenate.

12-Step programs propose a spiritual remedy and do not offer much advice for the physical dimension of healing from addiction. One very important aspect of this is Hatha yoga – the asanas and breathing exercises. During the retreat you will practice yogic physical exercises – asanas (suitable for all levels) along with Pranayama (breathing exercises) and conscious relaxation. All this helps to develop not only the body, but also to broaden the mental faculties and spiritual capacities. Yoga exercises improve the health of the spine and aid the proper function of the internal organs. They also work on the nervous system and the endocrine system (glands and hormones) therefore restoring health and balance to the entire system.
