Philosophy

Alcohol misuse can cause physical, emotional and spiritual damage to bodies and minds. My own recovery is an ongoing process of awareness, acceptance, personal change, and healing.

Yoga is a technique for developing awareness and acceptance, and a tool for creating positive change and healing. In my experience, when used together with other supportive recovery therapies, yoga can help repair the physical damage of addiction, improve emotional and spiritual wellbeing, and help maintain sobriety.
