Yoga of Recovery: Between the Mat and the Meeting

with Mary Thompson and Durga Leela

June 9 - 16, 2019

Ayurvedic Healing for All Addictive Tendencies

Health and recovery from addiction and disease involve fully living in the wholeness that you are. By recognizing your innate strengths and stress-response tendencies, you can learn to revitalize your body’s systems rather than to depend on addictive, unhealthy behaviors. Build a strong foundation of living well, and learn about stress, digestion, sleep hygiene, and detoxification. Practice deep self-care and emotional regulation through simple Ayurvedic daily routines that you can practice at home.

Optional 12-step meetings will also be offered throughout the course.

We require alcohol/chemically dependent guests to have at least three months of continuous sobriety. Those with eating disorders and behavioral addictions (relationships, gambling, spending etc.) should have enough stability to embark on this particular work.

This retreat is part of a longer, in-depth certification program suitable for professionals and coaches who work with those on journeys of recovery.

You can learn more about the approach of this course by reading this article.

Please note Durga Leela is also offering Yoga of Recovery: Healing the Habits that Bind Us June 2-9, 2019. You can save $300 when you register for both Yoga of Recovery programs for $1,200 total tuition instead of $1500 (accommodations extra).

Durga Leela is also presenting at Radical Recovery Summit. Learn more
