Yoga, Meditation, and Addiction Recovery Conference


Join presenters Rolf Gates, Nikki Myers, and Kate Johnson for the annual Yoga, Meditation, and Addiction Recovery Conference and deepen your exploration of recovery from addictions using the ancient tools and practices of yoga and meditation.

This conference offers strength and hope on the journey from addiction to recovery through breathwork, the chakra system, innovations in holistic 12-Step recovery, and more. While addictive behaviors separate us from ourselves, each other, our environment, and the Divine, yoga invites us into union, balance, and connection with practices that directly address the range of issues caused by addiction. Connected to our wholeness, we more readily recognize our addictive behaviors and find the inner strength to move beyond them.

Each day includes universal 12-Step meetings, dharma talks, asana, pranayama, and meditation practices as well as workshops that provide participants with a chance to more fully explore the convergence of the path of yoga, meditation, and recovery.

Everyone is welcome—all stages of recovery, all addictions, family members, and those who work in the field. Come connect your inner and outer worlds and awaken joy and peace from within by learning how to bring recovery alive in your practice.
