This guide provides a partial approach for developing a complete yoga and mindfulness practice, including breathing techniques, mindful movement, and meditation.

The Transformation Yoga Project serves people who are impacted by trauma, addiction, and incarceration, through trauma-sensitive, mindfulness-based yoga programs driven by education and research. Our highly-trained instructors offer a breath-centered yoga practice based on proven methods to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression, activate the relaxation response, lower blood pressure, and reduce stress. We facilitate classes and workshops in residential treatment centers, PHP and IOP programs, recovery residencies, collegiate recovery clubs, alternative high schools, detention centers, prisons, and through community partners.

"The feeling was electric-energy humming through my body. I felt like blood was pouring into areas of my tissues that it had not been able to reach for some time. It was relieving and healing, subtler than the feeling from getting off on drugs, but it was detectable and lovely, and of course, there was no hangover, just a feeling of more ease than I could remember. I felt a warmth come over me similar to what I felt when I had done heroin, but far from the darkness of that insanity, this was pure light-a way through." - Tommy Rosen, on his first yoga experience Most of us deal with addiction in some form. While you may not be a fall-down drunk, anorexic, or a gambling addict, you likely struggle with addiction in other ways. Workaholism, overeating, and compulsively engaging with technology like video games, texting, and Facebook are also highly common examples. And if you don't suffer from addiction, chances are you know someone who does. Through more than 20 years of recovery and in working professionally with others, Tommy Rosen has uncovered core elements of recovery and healing, what he refers to as Recovery 2.0. In the book, he shares his own past struggles with addiction, and powerful, tested tools for breaking free from the obstacles that stand in the way of a holistic and lasting recovery. Building off the key tenets of the 12-Step program, he has developed an innovative approach that includes • Looking at the roots of addiction; your family history and "Addiction Story" • Daily breathing practices, meditation, yoga, and body awareness • A healthy, alkaline-based diet to aid with detox, boost immunity, increase vitality, support your entire recovery, and help prevent relapse • Discovering your mission, living on purpose, and being of service to others Recovery 2.0 will help readers not only release their addictions, but thrive in their recovery.

Discover how yoga and the twelve steps can help you find freedom from addiction, exist peacefully in your body, and create a truly joyful life. If you’re in recovery from alcohol or substance abuse—or if you’re thinking of seeking help—you should know that there are many resources available to you. Traditional twelve step programs have become the standard in substance abuse treatment; however, these programs often lack one crucial ingredient for lasting recovery from addiction: a way to relate to the body so you can live comfortably in it—without the need to numb it. This is where yoga comes in. In Yoga for Addiction, yoga teacher Katy Cryer offers a gentle yoga practice that supports and complements the twelve steps, so you can manage emotions, stay present with your body, and stay firmly on the path to recovery. You’ll also find breathing and relaxation techniques to help you manage stress, and tips for dealing with cravings when they seem overwhelming. Whether you’re already in recovery from addiction and are interested in using yoga to support your journey; or practice yoga and think you may have a problem with alcohol, substances, or compulsive behaviors—this book has everything you need to harness the power of yogic wisdom for a full recovery of both body and mind.
