Yoga, Meditation, and Addiction Recovery Conference

EDUCATION, INSPIRATION, AND CELEBRATION

This summer, join us for the Yoga, Meditation, and Addiction Recovery Conference. During the conference, presenters Rolf Gates, Nikki Myers, and Kate Johnson guide participants in finding connection, balance, and tools for deepening resilience in support of addiction recovery. 

Through workshop topics including breathwork, the chakra system, and innovations in holistic 12-Step recovery, deepen your exploration of recovery from addictions using the ancient tools and practices of yoga and meditation. Led by a world-class teaching staff who represent a wide variety of backgrounds and modalities, this conference offers strength and hope on the journey from addiction to recovery.

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 morning universal 12-step meetings, dharma talks, asana, pranayama, and meditation practices. Several afternoon workshops, providing participants with a chance to more fully explore the convergence of the path of yoga, meditation and recovery are also included.

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.
