About Yoga 12 Step Recovery


Using Yoga to Fight Addiction

We offer Yoga 12 Step Recovery to help community members control addictions and substance use disorders. Offered virtually using Zoom from 6:30-8:30 p.m. every Sunday, this program addresses addiction relapse and can benefit adults who have experienced addiction, as well as loved ones impacted by it. Created in 2004, the yoga curriculum combines the ancient wisdom of

yoga with the practical tools of 12-step programs to address the physical, mental and spiritual needs of those fighting addiction. This program is offered virtually so all members of the community can easily participate. The program is FREE, however donations may be made to Y12SR. Financial contributions are used to help make meetings possible in underserved communities nationwide.
