About the Book

Yoga for Addiction Recovery delivers just that; practical yoga techniques and tools to support ongoing recovery from active addiction. Years spent, by the author, in both recovery and in practicing yoga have made clear that the underlying principles of both yoga and the 12 Steps weave together, complimenting each other in a totally cohesive way. If you are in recovery yourself, apply and absorb what you can use. If you are wanting to teach a yoga class to a recovering population, this book will give you a better understanding of the disease concept, in addition to the process your students will be walking through.
