Program Details

For everyone.

This conference uses the ancient tools and practices of yoga and meditation to deepen our exploration of recovery from addiction. Connected to our wholeness, we more readily recognize our addictive behaviors and find the inner strength to move beyond them.

Led by teachers who represent a wide variety of backgrounds and modalities in the field, this retreat experience will help you connect your inner and outer worlds, awaken the joy and peace within, and bring recovery alive in your practice.

Our days begin with asana and meditation that embrace concepts such as surrender, letting go, acceptance, and gratitude. A variety of workshops will be offered each day, on topics including meditation, breathwork, the chakra system, and innovations in holistic Twelve-Step recovery.

This program offers something for anyone in recovery, as well as family members and healing professionals.
