Yoga for 12 Step Recovery (Y12SR)
Taught by: Steve Jones
Modeled from the meetings of 12-step programs, Yoga for 12 Step Recovery (Y12SR) is a group-sharing circle preceded or followed by an intentional, themed yoga class. These classes are for anyone dealing with their own addictive behaviors or who are affected by those behaviors in others.

Y12SR combines the practical tools of the 12-step program with the ancient wisdom of yoga. Combining the two creates a model that truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental, and spiritual disease that it is. This is an open and inclusive group. All As are welcome to participate in Y12SR classes. No prior yoga or 12-step program experience is required.
