San Diego Yoga Festival Presents! Yoga for Recovery: Meditation and Talk with Carrie Schell

We all know someone who has been directly or indirectly impacted by addictions and alcoholism.  Yoga Recovery explores how yoga and meditation are effective in treating addictions, and in many cases, more effective than traditional therapies and medications.  Yoga Recovery takes the journey of wellness beyond the mat and guides us gently to the heart.  Join us for an engaging and interactive session of discussion and meditation. Please note there is no movement or yoga postures on this class.  

Carrie has been immersed in health and wellness since beginning her career as a licensed midwife twenty-five years ago. Her career has evolved over the years with her doctorate studies, work as a health consultant, physical activity practitioner and yogi. Carrie’s involvement in addiction recovery spans decades. Her passion for recovery, physical activity, nature and yoga merged in her role as Director of Health and Wellness at a residential addiction recovery facility where she developed a unique and highly successful recovery program rooted in yoga, physical activity and meditation. Carrie has been invited to speak at addiction conferences around the world, sharing the evidence and research supporting her approach to recovery. Carrie is the author of Mind, Body, Spirit: a journey to wellness, and has a yoga dvd and guided meditation cd.
