Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR), created by certified addictions recovery specialist Nikki Myers, is a relapse prevention program that combines the principles of the 12-step program, the trauma healing methods of Somatic Experiencing®, and the body-based approaches of yoga therapy.
This leadership training equips you to offer the Y12SR addiction relapse prevention program in your community. Using materials from ancient texts, trauma research, and neuroscience studies, you learn to create an environment and practices to help those dealing with addiction recognize the signs of relapse at the level of feeling and sensation in the body—and to restore balance before a relapse.
Through lecture, group discussion, experiential exercises, and practice, you learn to:
- Create a safe, inclusive, and welcoming space for anyone dealing with addictive behavior
- Understand the 12-step process of addiction recovery
- Develop themed, trauma-informed yoga practices specifically for the addiction recovery population
This intensive is appropriate for addiction professionals and anyone interested in deepening their understanding and application of the 12-step program and its symbiotic relationship with yoga. No yoga experience is required.
To be a certified Y12SR Leader, you must complete both the Y12SR Leadership Training and the Y12SR Intensive, which is now available online. Visit y12sr.com for more information.
