Brian Hyman, in conversation with Maury Sterling, discusses Recovery with Yoga: Supportive Practices for Transcending Addiction

Brian Hyman

This collection of 30 yoga and mindfulness tools will help support those in recovery from addiction of all kinds. Thirty accessible, pointed teachings offer inspiration, comfort, and solidarity in the moment, helping us cultivate a powerful and purposeful life in recovery and to create a new design for living. Each chapter focuses on a quality--such as vigilance, acceptance, accountability, among others--and delves into how to manifest it in your recovery journey.
Brian Hyman, a yoga teacher and recovery activist, understands deeply what people need to maintain sobriety and strengthen recovery--and knows that those who struggle with addiction also often need support with other mental health challenges, like obsession, anxiety, depression.
The practices--which include inquiry questions, meditations, awareness exercises, breathing practices, yoga nidra, among others--will quiet the mind in difficult moments, support us as we establish meaningful relationships, and reinforce the power that recovery offers us. He offers resources and additional reading suggestions in the back matter. Hyman uses yogic philosophy, mindfulness teachings, personal anecdotes, and secular wisdom to illuminate each quality and the role it plays in helping us create the life we want. (Shambhala)
