Exploring Yoga in Recovery


Learning to trust the body is an important part of recovery so it makes sense to include it in the process. But how do we do that if we still see physical movement and activity solely as a means to change the body?

It can be a challenge, but if we can consider the idea that the body can teach the mind, we can begin to approach movement from a place of curiosity and exploration as a way to begin to listen to, and ultimately trust, the body.

Join Kristen Wilson, registered yoga instructor, in this 4-week series to explore sensation within the body through the use of slow, conscious, rhythmic movement and adaptive yoga techniques.

This is a collaborative series that is open to anyone, regardless of perceived ability, who desires to explore sensation and movement as part of their recovery process.


Kristen Wilson is a registered yoga instructor. She is eating disorder-recovered and also lives with anxiety and major depressive disorder. She uses adaptive yoga principles and teachings to support her own recovery and she enjoys supporting others by sharing what she has learned, and continues to learn, through her own practice and experience.
