Addiction

Yoga for Addiction Recovery

We currently partner with Healing Transitions, an addiction recovery center in west Raleigh. Our programs are on the women’s campus.

We have had an ongoing weekly chair yoga program for several years for those in detox, provided by Celia Hartnett. Recently, we added a weekly program for women in the residential program, taught by Megan Grable. These classes help the ladies learn stress management skills and gentle practices to improve mobility.

Funding and partnerships

Funding for the new class is provided by the Rex Foundation in California.

We are looking for more partnerships to bring this program into the public setting:

  • Yoga teachers, possibly bi-lingual (Spanish), trained in addiction management
  • Studio or hosts for our programs
  • Sponsors for funding teacher stipends
