Yoga has been instrumental in guiding many through their addiction journey. Whether you’re in recovery or simply seeking growth, yogic principles and ancient texts can catalyze personal transformation in many ways. Notably, the tenets of recovery and yoga often overlap. To delve deeper into this captivating subject, I’ve invited Brian Hyman for a discussion.
Brian is a yoga therapist with 11 years of experience, facilitating thousands of yoga classes, meditation sessions, and process groups at a prominent treatment center for addiction recovery in Southern California. Having recovered from addiction himself, his work is innovative and dedicated and he’s written extensively on the subjects he’s discussing today.
Tune in this week to discover the yogic principles of transformation for life and recovery. We’re discussing how to find more happiness, regardless of what you accomplish or fail to accomplish in life, the specific yogic practices that are essential on the path of transformation, and why now is the best time to get started finding your purpose.
