Y12SR - Sundays
Y12SR: the issues live in our tissues.
The Yoga of 12 Step Recovery combines the practical tools of the 12-step program with the ancient wisdom of yoga.
Combining the two creates a model that truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental and spiritual disease that it is. Y12SR is a 12-step based discussion and yoga practice that is open to anyone and everyone dealing with their own addictive behavior or affected by the addictive behavior of others. This is an open and inclusive group, all A's are welcome. No yoga experience required. The only requirement for Y12SR membership is the ability to breathe. Wear comfortable clothing, meetings are by donation.
Lizz Ortolani , LMSW, RYT, trained as a Y12SR leader in 2018 and graduated 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga 4 A Good Hood in 2019. Lizz began practicing yoga when she was exploring Step 11 and through Y12SR found space to pass on that which was freely given to her by the yogis and 12 steppers who came before her.
This is a donation based class that benefit Y4AGH. Details will be given in class.

Numerous studies have proven that meditation helps to increase your concentration, decrease anxiety and creates a general feeling of overall ease and happiness.
There are many styles of meditation and it can be confusing to know where to begin. In this workshop we will learn how to find a comfortable seat and discover tools to keep the mind focused. Various meditations styles will be explored however the focus will be on Mindfulness Meditation.
This workshop is great for anyone wanting to begin a meditation practice.
Please wear loose comfortable clothing. There may be some gentle movement.
Avoid wearing anything scented, as that can be distracting.
If you have your own meditation props; cushion, seat, you are welcome to bring them. We will have bolsters, blankets and chairs to help you get comfortable.

Our Yoga Basics class is our way of welcoming brand-new yogis into the practice and into the TRU community.
Together we will break down fundamental yoga postures and basic flow, terminology, and general class structure.
Some discussion is welcome as we explore questions like:
What are the different types of yoga classes?
What else does TRU offer?
What can I expect in a class?
What is the etiquette?
What are "props" and how are they used?
Students who have never practiced yoga before, or who consider themselves beginners, even 200HR hour new graduates, will find this 90-minute class supportive in transitioning to other classes or ones teaching.
Every month beginning in November we will offer a three week series once every quarter. Stay tuned for more details.
