Wednesday 5-6 Gentle Vinyasa Flow

6:15-6:45 Y12SR  Meeting & Prana Vinyasa Flow Yoga Class

Many of us are all recovering from some form of  trauma.  Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event. Often as humans  to avoid the feeling of pain we will over induldge in behaviors that lead to suffering. When the pain gets great enough we are willing to do something different about the behaviors. This is when the problem becomes the gift and we enter into recovery.  Recovery is a normal state of health, mind or stength. This gift is what has led me to Y 12 SR. These  meetings are a safe space to discuss the issues that live in our tissues in a supportive non judgemtnal enviorment. We do not solve problems or advise rather share in a loving safe environment with the structure of the 12 steps. There are 212 -12 step based programs  healing addictions like Food, Drugs, Alcohol, People,Technology, Exercise. If there is an addiction we have a  sustainable solutions  with 12 step to freedom. All are welcome to speak, share and support at a Y12SR meeting.

Guided Meditations

"Every human being is the author of his own health or disease." Buddha 


Becoming in touch with the breath can heal the mind. Book 1, Sutra 34 Patanjali's Yoga Sutra states "We can avoid the obstacles and purify the mind by a controlled exhalation followed by a retention of the breath" Controling the breath helps to regain balance from our distractions. Meditation is the pratice of steading the mind from distractions focusing  on the breath becoming present in  the moment.  This tool can assist in changing the brain structure. Mindfulness- based stress reduction was found to increase functions in the brain. Improves concentration, self- awareness, happiness, benifits cardiovascular and immune health.

The road to self discovery often encounters  obstacles  of fear manifested in many different forms.  Through a  gentle pratice of yoga and a willingess to grow we learn what those fears are. We are unable to seek a  substainable solution to a problem if we dont identify the problem.   When  we acknowledge the problem we can  seek a solution. In the past I had sought out faster quick fixes, they were tempoary and often created more problems. The benefits and sustainablility of Yoga are what has led me back  to the mat again and again. 

 Our bodies are self repairing mecinisem that store information since birth. We hold our issues in our tissues, though pratice we are able to release and heal. When we heal we are able to be our most authentic unapoligetic beautiful self.  This has been my personal experience.  I have been reunited with my truest form of self through yoga and meditation.  Now that the light is back in my heart, I wish to decicate my time to relighting the flame for others.  My holistic approcah to heal from my personal trama has cured my depression. My recipe also includes  the study of the  principals of the niyamas and yamas of yoga a day at at time.  I strive to maintain a level of balance. By continuting these pratices along with regular attenance at 12 step meetings. I consider my self in remisson of severe depression, drug and alcohol addiction.  My mind my drift back into old ways from time to time, but  I am able to catch it faster today.  Like many of us along the journy I consider myself  a masterpeice in process.

Display their FAQs

I have never done yoga will i be able to keep up with the class?


The answer is yes!  Yoga is about self discovery more about slowing down than speeding up.  Yoga is an individual journey of self love and self acceptance.  Often the most difficult pose in yoga is getting on the mat! For myself and others rest of the struggle is just  finding time to practice.  Pratice leads to progress.  The invitation is to meet yourself where you are at and begin the journy to progress.
