Freud knew what he was doing when he asked his patients to lie back and recline. Obtaining a calm focused mind and fit body takes practice and discipline over time. People in recovery from addictions can find healthy sober alternatives (abstinence) anxiety provoking and spiritually challenging. Yoga as the recovery room provides the space on the mat to discover automatic mind-body responses and learn calming ways to respond to the waves of sensations.

    2) How yoga practices can relieve cravings and rebuild neural pathways in the brain;
    3) To understand how to integrate practices for specific diseases and recovery.
