From Cynthia:

30 years ago I was introduced to the 12 Steps of Recovery.  I have been shown by many beautiful people who have gone before me how to live a principled life through the steps but it wasn’t until I began the practice of yoga that I found a greater depth of emotional sobriety.   Bringing the steps into my yoga practice has given me a greater awareness of what I need to practice off my mat. The breath work and pranayama energy has become an essential part of my connection with my Divine Creator.  I’m so excited to share this practice and hear

about your awarenesses.
