Y12SR combines the practical tools of the 12-Step program with the ancient wisdom of yoga.”

Y12SR ( Yoga of 12-step recovery) is a 12-step based discussion and yoga practice open to anyone and everyone dealing with their own addictive behavior or affected by the addictive behavior of others. It is an open and inclusive group. All A’s are welcome. Y12SR recognizes that yoga and its practices are a part of a holistic recovery program and rather than a replacement, it provides adjunct tools to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction.

Local Recovery Yogi Becky Gordon is offering this incredible class on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. Classes are held at A New Path in the 3rd Street center here in Carbondale. Classes are by donation.

There is another awesome yoga class that is open to the Recovery community on Tuesday nights at the Carbondale Community United Methodist Church. This informal, no-pressure, not-judgey-at-all, yoga class is taught by Boomerang coffee Company’s own Elissa Rodman. Elissa is a barista extraordinaire and her beautiful artwork is on display at Boomerang. Her class is held every Tuesday night at 6:30 PM downstairs at the church on 385 S. 2nd Street. This class is also on a donation basis.

Do your body ,mind ,and spirit a favor and attend these amazing yoga classes.

With Gratitude,

Mark Kloster
