About This Workshop
One in seven people in the United States is expected to develop a Substance Use Disorder at some point in their lives, with only ten percent receiving some type of treatment. Nikki Myers (E-RYT 500), founder and director of Yoga for 12-Step Recovery, joins Dr. Sat Bir Singh Khalsa for an important discussion on how yoga might help people who experience a Substance Use Disorder. This workshop will review the scientific research and rationale for using yoga to support recovery and improve overall mental health, and feature a real-world application of yoga as a powerful and sustainable supplement to 12-step programs. If you or someone you know suffers from substance use disorder or addiction, you may find resources on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) website, or you can call their national helpline at 1-800-662-HELP (4357) – U.S. only.
