Yoga and Recovery


Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher, Cassie Jackson is offering a class for those in recovery at Zazen. It has been Cassie's experience that Yoga's methodology intelligently and compassionately addresses the specific needs of anxiety, depression and trauma, most often the root cause of substance abuse. We will explore how yoga's philosophy and methodology aligns with the principals of the recovery program and how it provides a platform for those philosophies and principals to manifest physically through our bodies. This class aims to support recovery by offering asanas and other tools that have helped sustain Cassie in her recovery over the years. Utilizing the knowledge given her by her teachers, her classes foster equanimity and ease. BKS Iyengar's indelible teachings and ingenious gift of props facilitates the individual needs of every body. Cassie's inescapable love of yoga, compassion for the human spirit, authenticity in heartening others along their path can be felt in every meeting. You will leave her class feeling restored and connected through the healing modality that is yoga.
