Futhermore we will learn about the effects of addictions on the mind, the body, our hormones and our emotions. The effects of use of medications including anti-depressants and other prescription drugs will be adressed, plus there will be an owerview of the psychiatric issues involved in addiction and recovery.


Module 2: This module will focus on specific postures and their direct effects upon the body, mind and hormonal flow. We will explore the power of intention, the effects of pranayama & meditation, and the experience of mantra. The need for self-parenting, acceptance and boundaries in recovery will be a fundamental part. This module will focus on how to teach yoga to master the addictive personality in different setting including prisons, rehabs, gyms and dedicated yoga centres. We will explore the issues when working with clients who are in treatment and in harm minimisation centres.


Module 3: The third module will look at diet and detoxification including a life without sugar and other stimuli including caffeine. We will discuss the importance of a spiritual practice which includes replacing acting out with ceremony and ritual. In this module we will also focus on healthy sexuality and intimacy. We will create a tool box for long-term recovery and relapse prevention. Part of the module will look at how to set up, run and publicise classes and groups and how to make the best use of social media.


Yoga, pranayama and meditation will be a core practise throughout the whole week.


Certification is based upon passing of an exam and attendance at all three modules. If you don't have a yoga teacher training in beforehand, you can not teach after this education, but we encourage you to take a yoga teacher training program.
