Saturday, June 23, 2 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—Join Maeve Ryan to try a safe, supportive yoga class on Saturday, June 23 from 2-3 p.m. at Norman Williams Public Library. Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR) was created as a holistic model to address the physical, mental and spiritual dis-ease of addiction. Y12SR is informed by the latest research in neuroscience and trauma healing.

The characteristics and effects of addiction could easily be described as separation. Addictive behaviors disconnect people from themselves, loved ones, the environment and so much more.  Conversely, yoga itself means union, integration, balance. Yoga teaches the fine art of balancing multidimensional lives while living in a complex world.

No yoga experience is necessary. Participants need not be affected by addiction to attend this class. Yoga mats will be provided.

Ryan completed her 200-hour yoga training at West Hartford Yoga in Connecticut and became a registered yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance in 2009. She later became a certified Y12SR (Yoga of 12-Step Recovery) instructor in 2014. She teaches all levels of students and everything from gentle yoga to power vinyasa flow.

The library is located at 10 The Green, Woodstock. For more information, visit normanwilliams.org.

  • Hi! I saw this on the Y12SR lfacebook leaders page.

    I’m in Colorado but I come to your area in the fall for my daughter’s soccer season whenever I can. She is at SUNY Albany.

    I would love to try to come if you hold a group or just to meet you and get coffe and tea. She wants me to take her to the Animal Sanctuary in Woodstock.

    Thanks!

    Joyce
