I'm excited to share with you a new endeavor of mine, one that brings together two major streams that have run through my life.
Beginning in January, I'll be teaching a class I'm calling Yoganonymous, for people in 12- step recovery. I'm offering this class on a donation basis, for people recovering from all addictions--alcohol, drug dependency, eating disorders, codependency, compulsive behaviors--as well for their loved ones who attend the various "Anon" meetings.
This class will meet Thursdays from 5:30-6:45 (with an optional meditation until 7) at the Ithaca Community Recovery Building, 518 West Seneca Street, Ithaca, NY. The class is open to members of all 12-step fellowships. Anonymity will be respected to ensure a sense of safety and trust for all who attend. All levels of yoga experience are welcome, including absolute beginners. We will focus on yoga as a way to support the 11th step work of making "conscious contact" with a Higher Power, as well as a practice for cultivating well-being, healing and peace.
Pay what you can--no one will be turned away for lack of funds. All contributions will be used for paying rent and purchasing yoga supplies.
The 12 steps and yoga are two spiritual practices that have transformed my life. I am grateful to have the opportunity to offer service in this way. Please help me spread the word by forwarding this post to anyone you know in the Ithaca area who is in recovery.
Many Blessings and Deep Peace,
