Experience Strength & Hope
Sobriety + Kundalini Yoga + Inner Child Work
- When confronting old feelings, thoughts and perceptions, we can no longer continue to self-medicate with the use of alcohol, drugs or any obsessive-compulsive behaviors that we use to escape those feelings or thoughts.
- The tools learned in a 12 Step Program are useful in not only helping us to recover from self-defeating habits but they also provide an amazing template on how to deal and resolve many of life’s challenges.
- Sitting with those who are able to share their experience, strength and hope is an immeasurable support system to have available as we move through this process.

What is Kundalini Yoga?
- It’s one of the oldest known yogic traditions
- It uses breath/meditation to train and quiet the mind
- It uses Asana/Yoga to train and relax the body
- It uses Mantra/Sound to penetrate the subconscious mind, releasing old habits and perceptions that no longer serve you.
Kundalini Yoga represents the somatic release/healing part of the process by allowing the practitioner access to those underlying feelings, thoughts and memories that have been locked within the subconscious mind and body tissue for years. It stimulates and catapults the recovery process.
