Strengthen Your Recovery And Prevent Relapse: Add Yoga To Your Daily Routine.
“Yoga and the Twelve Step Path”, by Kyczy Hawk Combining the wisdom of yoga and the solid foundations of a twelve step recovery program Kyczy Hawk moves between two to help the reader find the similarities and build on them.
Addiction is a disease of the body, mind and spirit and yoga unites body mind and spirit - becoming then an integral part of a recovery path. The breath work and physical practices of yoga address the needs of the body in recovery. The rooms of recovery offer solutions for the mind and spirit; yoga involves the body as well.
The book also addresses various physical types, sense therapies to help balance each constitutional type, and tools to add to one’s tool kit of remedies for the difficult situations that can lead to relapse. The book also offers ways to help identify the impact of these situations before they become extreme.
In addition to breath exercises, some questions for contemplation or journaling, the author has included some basic yoga poses and instructions. Working with a teacher is always recommended, but this book gives some basics to help the reader move onto the mat and through some sequences in comfort and safety.
This book is an excellent gift, a book for self-discovery and for reference. It is an easy read and a welcome resource for people in recovery as well as for yoga teachers who have chosen to teach them.
