This training is designed for yoga teachers wanting to work with the recovery population. It is also found to be extremely helpful for therapists, counselors, social workers, probation officers and others with a desire to understand how the ancient philosophies and practices of yoga align with the 12-step program of recovery.

After participating in the Leadership Training, you will be able to:

• Create a safe space that welcomes all those dealing with their own addictive behavior or are affected by the addictive behavior of others.

• Understand the 12-step process of recovery.

• Use Yoga and its practices to provide relapse prevention tools and sustainable ways for managing internal states.

• Take advantage of teachable moments, help resolve ambivalence and work with those who are struggling emotionally.

• Use social learning theory to model new behavior through observational learning.

• Recognize the traps of projection, transference, countertransference, boundary violation, spiritual bypass, arrogance.

• Work collaboratively within the group setting and with institutions.
