About Healing Addiction with Yoga

Especially oriented toward those in 12-step programs, this comprehensive wellness guide describes how yoga can stimulate recovery from addiction by bringing the mind and body closer together. The supportive and understanding text presents a 21-day yoga regimen using dynamic affirmations, relaxation techniques, nutrition and lifestyle suggestions, aerobic activities, and journal writing, all of which are geared to incorporate the 12-step philosophy into yoga practice. The featured poses are drawn from the popular hatha yoga tradition, while the complementary contemplations are applicable not only to addicts, but to anyone seeking physical and spiritual enrichment. Newly updated and revised, the guide includes beautiful, professional photographs throughout to demonstrate the wide variety of asanas.
