DAY 4: Pincha Mayurasana which is not something I practice so this is a screenshot. Someday I’ll gain the strength to balance here! For now, my body is telling me to sloooow down in a not so gentle way with a killer migraine. **********
People always ask: Why Ashtanga yoga? Why does this practice work, especially for people in recovery? The answer is this: the practice of Ashtanga yoga provides many skills needed for early recovery. It provides mindfulness, fitness, self-reflection, structure, daily discipline, community, commitment, and measurable goals. It supports and mirrors recovery work in many ways (programs like AA, NA and others). The more you can practice these skills and the more reinforcement you get that this is the right work to be in, the more successful the recovery.
