Yoga for Addiction Recovery Support July thru Sept 2015

Alternative Therapies for Recovery from Addiction in Burke County

Starting Tuesday, July 21, Yoga for Addiction Recovery Support (YARS) will run for 10 weeks at 10am for one hour each week at Breathe Yoga & Wellness, 131 West Union Street in Downtown Morganton. Through the generous support of our local yoga community, this class is offered by donation — students pay what they are able.

The benefits of yoga for recovery from addiction are evidence-based and are continuously studied at leading universities and research institutes. Proven science based in neurology/brain functioning, self-care, and life balance is applied to ancient wisdom that acknowledges the healing powers of mindfulness and meditation. The physical practice of yoga works very closely with a therapeutic program of recovery and readies people for transformation, allowing them to absorb the gifts of recovery, no matter our spiritual beliefs or background.


Yoga for Addiction Recovery Support emphasizes physical and emotional safety, and requires no prior yoga experience. Although 12-Step principals are applied during class, it's not necessary that you be in a 12-Step program to participate, but it is suggested that students be on an active path of recovery through a program. This class is not meant to be a substitute for addiction treatment.

Anyone who works in  in a mental health or substance abuse agency and has a client for consideration for YARS, please inquire to discuss his or her needs. No one may attend class under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Any questions at all about the YARS program may be directed to [email protected]
