Recovery/Self Discovery with Susie Bloodworth (RYT-200)

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I wish I would stop doing that?” or “ I wish I could stop thinking that?” “I have no self-control, no will-power.”  You are not alone.

Many people think that addicts are simply people that can’t stop taking drugs. Certainly, that is one type of addiction. However, the forms of addiction are varied; including, work, food, nicotine, other people, sex, gambling, social media, alcohol, negative thinking, fear, worry and the list goes on and on. The truth is that we are all addicted to something. Addiction is really distraction from our secret selves. And our secrets keep us mentally, physically and spiritually sick. Many times we don’t even know were are hiding the truth from ourselves.

Although, distractions may vary, there is one solution - a connection to our Higher Self. The 12 steps of recovery are designed to relieve obsession thinking and lead individuals to a spiritual awakening. The 8 limbs of yoga are designed to help the practitioner lift the veils of illusion to achieve union with divine. Same, same, right? 12 step recovery and the yoga are both paths to the same desired outcome.

This twelve week workshop series will illustrate the linkages between yoga philosophy and the spiritual principles behind the 12 steps. The series is an opportunity for the students to explore the two complementary paths, uncovering and discovering what it standing in the way of being fully awake, peaceful and happy in this lifetime.
