Led by Kashi, Teacher in Residence


While many of us know that addiction/alcoholism is a disease, too few recognize it as a “family disease,” which may emotionally, spiritually and often physically affect those surrounding the “addict.” Family members and loved ones begin to develop their own form of the disease (ie: PTSD, stress, anxiety, co-dependency, insomnia, shame and fear to name a few) in an attempt to deal with the chaos of what is happening in their lives.

In this workshop we will be looking at how we have been affected by this cunning and baffling disease and how using recovery tools such as the 12 Steps of Recovery along with the teachings of yoga can help in the journey toward healing, balance and a life worth living. 

This program is open to all who live with or have lived with the problem of alcohol/addiction in a friend, loved one or themselves personally. If you are struggling and suffering, if you feel the pain, stress and loneliness of life, if you notice there are behaviors you resort to that aren’t serving you—and you are ready to say, “there must be a better way”—then this program is for you.

Please note: we require alcohol/chemically dependent participants to have at 30 days of continuous sobriety. Those with eating disorders and behavioral addictions (relationships, gambling, spending, etc.) are welcome and should have enough stability to attend this 2.5 hour workshop.

Event Price (as you are able): $30-$50
