The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR) is a practice designed to holistically address addiction. Addiction often goes unacknowledged in our culture, yet it is something we are all affected by. Each time we reach for something outside ourselves (substances, food, relationships, credit cards, etc.) to soothe or avoid our feelings, we reinforce codependent behaviors. Over time, these behaviors separates us from our true needs and power, leading us into addiction and suffering.
The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery serves people by creating a safe place where trauma & conditioned behaviors can be released. Various techniques are used to address the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of addiction. Y12SR is not a replacement for therapy or step work, but will enhance your progress within them. Every session is divided into two parts: a 12-step style discussion, and an intentionally themed yoga practice (appropriate for all levels of experience). Y12SR also supports those who are impacted by a loved one’s addictive behavior. This is an open and inclusive group that all are welcome to attend.

ABOUT INSTRUCTOR SHELBY ROLLA
Shelby began practicing yoga during her recovery from a life-threatening eating disorder. She found that yoga was (and is) instrumental in her healing process. Shelby’s deep transformation inspired her to share the gift of yoga with others. She earned her 200-hour RYT from Dragonfly Yoga Studio, under the mentorship of Alexis Ridge-Simek. Shelby focused her training on emotional regulation through yoga. She then completed a Y12SR certification with Nikki Myers, empowering her to work with individuals affected by the disease of addiction. Shelby is currently studying Yoga Therapy with Brandt Passalacqua of Breathing Deeply. Off the mat, Shelby is a speaker and a mental health advocate. She works with schools, treatment centers, and universities to spread awareness and hope. Shelby’s intention is to invite others to discover their own healing potential, and to offer them support along their respective journeys.
