Our Thetford service in Norfolk is now running yoga sessions that are specially designed for people in recovery.
It “connects the dots” between the ancient wisdom of yoga and the practical tools of 12-step programmes. It also uses the latest research on trauma healing and neurobiology. It can help you feel better physically, mentally and spiritually.
A trained member of staff runs the sessions every Thursday at 17:15 in our Thetford hub. If you are attending the service or you are supporting someone else, please join us.
What to expect
One of the participants has described their experience of the yoga sessions:
“I have had many years battling addiction and mental illness, especially anxiety. I am fearful of change and trying new things. When I heard about the 12 step yoga programme, I had many questions - am I fit enough, can I do it?
However my fears were unfounded. It is an extremely relaxing practice, some of the poses can be a little tricky at first, but there is a very comfortable pose to return to at any time if you're struggling. No-one is judging, just learning.
You can also share with the group if you wish, but it is by no means compulsory. I leave the sessions feeling refreshed and relaxed in the knowledge that each time I've taken part in an activity that's good for my mind, body and soul.
I've started to feel fitter and more confident. It is more than suitable for all shapes, sizes and abilities and a great opportunity to try something new. Finally, the sessions are completely free, so you just need to bring yourself and an open mind.”
