Yoga of Recovery – WEEKEND: Between the Mat and the Meeting
with Durga Leela, E-RYT 500
June 18 - 21, 2020
Quite simply, this weekend is for those who struggle and suffer. Those who are beginning to suspect that the way they’re living is not sustainable. Those who feel the pain of the stress and striving of life, and feel the loneliness. Those who notice that there’s a range of behaviors and substance, whether it be drinks, shopping, drugs, gambling, medications, or acting out in relationships, that you resort to yet you still feel something is lacking. And now you’re ready to say, “I’m done with it!”
During this 4-day program, you will learn Ayurvedic healing tools for all addictive tendencies. Ayurveda helps us recognize our acting out behaviors and addictive tendencies, and the needs and vulnerabilities that underlie them at the bio-psycho-social-spiritual levels. You’ll discover ways to embody recovery and live empowered lives of emotional sobriety, one day at a time.
Ayurveda is the science of self-healing through understanding our personal tendencies. You’ll learn about your triggers and how they are impacted by time and environment. From this, you can come to recognize the stability and potential that you are capable of and by using simple, practical, stress-relieving, and self-soothing daily routines. We all need a strong foundation in health to face the challenges and stresses of daily life without resorting/relapsing into bad habits and old addictive behaviors. For Yoga practitioners and those in 12 step recovery—this information guides us between the mat and the meeting!
This weekend program is an option for those who cannot take the entire course, Yoga of Recovery® –MODULE, June 18–25, 2020.
Open to all. We suggest at least three months of continuous sobriety for alcohol/chemically dependent guests, as we are not a medical/detox facility. Please contact us if you feel able to attend in your early sobriety—we’d like to ensure that the retreat is the best option for you. Those with eating disorders or behavioral addictions should have enough stability to embark on this work.
