Yoga of 12-Step Recovery: Addiction Recovery & Preventing Relapse Through Yoga
Supporting Addiction Recovery & Preventing Relapse Through Yoga
In the United States, an estimated 1 in 3 people are either dealing with an addiction, or are severely affected by the addiction of someone close to them.
By integrating the wisdom of yoga with the practical tools of 12-step programs, the Yoga of 12-Step Recovery program (Y12SR) offers a rich and powerful framework to support addiction recovery. Serving people who are in recovery from all manifestation of addictions, Y12SR is not only a relapse prevention program, but a reintegration program that reconnects those in recovery with all parts of themselves and with the world…moving beyond duality, into oneness.
Leading the way to establish yoga as a recognized intervention for relapse prevention.
Yoga of 12-Step Recovery grew from founder Nikki Myers’ personal experience of using yoga with a 12-step program to maintain sobriety. Since 2003, Y12SR has grown into a robust program that has trained more than 350 active leaders nationwide to host weekly meetings in community and clinical settings — creating a safe place on the mat where trauma can be released, and healing can take place.
