Discover how to teach embodied heart language and life-affirming philosophy as a powerful tool for those affected by addictive behaviors. Learn how to help your students feel better in their bodies, calm their obsessive minds and deepen their connection with their Higher Power.
This weekend workshop is eligible for 12 elective hours toward ASHY 300 hour Teacher Training and Yoga Alliance CEU’s.

This module was developed and will be led by ASHY’s Subject Matter Expert of Addiction Recovery, Certified Teacher Gail Corvette. Sober since 1995, she credits her Anusara Yoga Teacher training (ten years into her recovery) for finally accepting her disease and feeling whole. She has two certifications for teaching the recovery population: S.O.A.R. (Success Over Addiction and Relapse) geared toward teaching recovering addicts in treatment centers and Y12SR (Yoga of 12-Step Recovery) focused on a public 12-step meeting and themed practice. She presented on this topic at Samavesha in 2016.
She has taught yoga to the recovery population since 2011: in a private home to members of Alcoholics Anonymous, to inpatients and outpatient at the County-run drug and alcohol rehab center, on retreats, at Conventions, for fundraisers, and in a weekly Y12SR meeting at the County rehab center for the patients, members of “A” groups and the recovery community.
