“Yoga of 12-Step Recovery was created as a holistic model to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction. Informed by the latest research in neuroscience and trauma healing, Y12SR “connects the dots” by combining the somatic approach of yoga with the cognitive approach of the 12-step recovery model – the most well-known addiction recovery program in the world, with millions of active practitioners.

The characteristics and effects of addiction could easily be described as separation. Addictive behaviors disconnect us from ourselves, our loved ones, our environment and so much more.

Conversely, yoga itself means union, integration, balance. Yoga and its practices teach the fine art of balancing our multidimensional lives while living in a complex world.” (adapted from

Modeled on the structure of 12-step meetings, Y12SR meetings include a group sharing circle followed or preceded by an intentional, themed yoga class. They are open to all individuals who are working to overcome all manifestations of addiction – from behavioral addictions, to substance abuse – as well as those impacted by the addictive behavior of others.

As part of Sangha’s effort to bring more of their Service Programs into the studio, these classes are free to participants.
