About the event
Yoga as a Recovery Pathway (YoR) explores Ayurveda's understanding of both the problem of our 'one addiction process' and its solution. It offers holistic techniques that enhance any of the traditional recovery pathways and beyond any of the common diet/exercise dogma from mainstream media. It covers the stress/addictive tendencies of the doshic types, and links this to how stress affects metabolism, the main determinant of health. YoR is an integration of the philosophy, psychology and physical practices of Yoga and Ayurveda to help people shift their life trajectory and live well in long-term emotional sobriety. Join Durga Leela, Ayurveda Practitioner and IAYT Yoga Therapist and Teacher in a discussion on the role of Ayurveda in understanding and addressing addiction.
