Yoga of 12-Step Recovery: The Issues Live In Our Tissues
Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR) “connects the dots” between the ancient wisdom of yoga, the practical tools of 12-step programs, and the latest research on trauma healing and neurobiology. As part of a holistic recovery program, it works in tandem with traditional treatment to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction.
Join Amber Campbell in this introductory workshop as we discuss:
- What Y12SR is and what is not
- The Dis-ease of Addiction
- The 12 Step Recovery Program
- The Art and Science of Yoga
- Similarities between the 12-Step Recovery Program and Yoga Philosophy
- The Neurobiology and Physiology of Trauma
- Y12SR Meetings / Embodiment Concepts / Interventions / Practice
Amber Campbell is a 500-Hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher and Teacher Trainer. She began practicing yoga as a teenager when faced with severe mental health challenges. Compelled by the impact yoga had on her quality of life, she attended Teacher Training in 2016 to deepen her practice and to share the power of yoga and meditation with others.
Amber’s ever-growing passion for the practice stems from its ability to create inclusive spaces for self-inquiry and collective liberation. She hopes her work will help to bridge the gap between yoga as exercise and yoga as a way of life, and encourage students to make real and positive change in themselves and their communities.
Amber received her Advanced Training in 2019 and is also certified in Accessible Yoga, Yoga of 12-Step Recovery, and trauma-informed movement practices. In Amber’s classes, she will emphasize adaptive practice and mindful transitions, and help students give themselves permission to connect to and make peace with the bodies they bring with them today.
