Yoga for Recovery
Sat, Sep 9, 2017 at 12:00 pm - 6:30 pm
This workshop will illuminate the ways in which Ayurveda & Yoga breathe life into the practical spirituality of the 12 steps and recovery from addiction.
We will explore the foundational concepts of Ayurveda (such as dosha, gunas, tattvas and Indian Philosophy) and how these tools apply to recovery.
According to Ayurveda, we have all that we need to live our fullest, most authentic life. Dis-ease arises from misplacement and a shift away from center. Just as the 12 steps offers practical tools to live a life free from active addiction, Ayurveda offers tools to work with our true nature; bringing us back to center.
Combining the ancient sciences of Ayurveda & Yoga with the 12 Steps of Recovery forges a path to bring our entire being back to center, so that we can discover our heart's desire and learn to live with purpose.
This series is appropriate for:
-professionals in the addiction treatment field who wish gain knowledge of a holistic lifestyle & spiritual path for clients.
-yogis looking to deepen their understanding of Ayurveda and the 12 steps
-people recovering from addiction or affected by the addiction of another seeking a holistic lifestyle.
Autumn Self Care: A Yoga Workshop
Sun, Sep 10, 2017 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
As September is upon us, more Autumn responsibilities seem to reveal themselves, as Summer freedoms tend to disappear. Do you notice this shift in other areas of your life? Do you find that the ‘winds of change’ are stressful or a struggle? Know that this is a very normal response when encountering turns of the season. They often simultaneously impact other changes in our daily lives. And so, what if we engage in these cycles of Mother Nature, to begin aligning cycles of ourselves with increased calm and resilience? Perhaps we can grow a deeper awareness of all that does not serve us, release it, and then focus instead on the positive energy and experiences that remain. In this workshop designed for yoga and self-care practices – you can do just that.
Carly invites you to join her on Sunday, September 10th, for a yoga workshop created for setting such intentions. By way of yogic philosophy and practices (such as asana, breathwork, chanting), and the art of free-write journaling, Carly will support your exploration of this courageous ‘burning up’ (also known as tapas) to free up space for future goals. During the afternoon, Carly will lead you through some guided meditation and yoga sequencing, including a longer-than-usual Savasana, conceived with the purpose of relaxation and grounding.
No experience is required – come exactly as you are. Whether or not you are new to yoga, Carly will be fully present for your journey as instructor. Her main goal is to highlight opportunities on and off of the mat where you can continue the ritual of using self-care tools for personal enrichment and restoration.
