Addiction is insidious and takes many forms with substance abuse being only one manifestation. Many find themselves suffering from toxic relationships, codependency, eating disorders, anxiety, perfectionism, undigested traumas….this list goes on and on.
WE ARE ALL RECOVERING FROM SOMETHING AND EACH OF US HAS ROOM TO COME CLOSER TO WHOLENESS.
Addiction is HARD WORK and all-consuming. Whether it’s alcohol or the brutal mind spin, it takes 110% of our energy to sustain that vicious wheel rolling. Luckily there are ways to transform that energy towards finding freedom and healing; to reorganize our patterns from destructive to productive.
ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF MY RECOVERY HAS BEEN MY YOGA PRACTICE.
Yoga means to yoke, to connect, to unify. It can help harmonize our lives and create balance in this ever-changing and challenging world. By moving stagnant energy, emotion, and trauma through our bodies, learning how to work with our nervous system through the breath, and getting curious about our minds through meditation and self-inquiry, we can begin to peel back the layers and truly create relationship with ourselves and the world as it is. No need to hide, fix, or run.
We can do hard things. Not only is sobriety possible, but I truly believe we can alchemize addiction, transform it from chaos into clarity, and live a life you’ve never dreamt possible.
