Learn ways for the BODY MIND and SPIRIT to find unity and help us recover from the disease of addiction.
Facilitated by HeartSprings practitioner, Camelia Lamey:
"I began yoga to regain physical flexibility and while the practice relaxed tight tissues, unexpectedly and quietly it also relaxed my spirit and mind. “Showing up on the mat” for nearly 15 years has changed how I interact with the world, with others, and most surprisingly how I interact with myself.
"The journey of this practice has not always been easy physically or emotionally and has definitely challenged my mind, however, the hard work done on the mat has shaped and improved all that I do off the mat and in the world. I have come to believe that yoga does for you what needs to be done… even when you are unaware of the need – and in increments that one can abide. My 200 and 500 hour trainings have been strongly influenced by self-inquiry and reflection leading me to do the same in classes I guide.
"My overriding intention for all classes I facilitate is to increase awareness at three levels: sensation in the body, chatter in the mind, and connection to our true selves, our spirit. This journey of awareness and inquiry can occur in any setting where mindfulness is employed but is easily done in a yoga class where physical sensation occurs no matter the class type. All through my practice I continue to take trainings – some of a more personal inquiry, and some that help me help others more directly. Most recent examples include dealing with PTS during training with The Veteran’s Yoga Project, and S.O.A.R. (Success Over Addiction and Relapse)."
