The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery Certification Process

Our certification process is done in two steps. We have the Intensive and then the Leadership Training. The intensive is a deep dive in to the practical tools of 12 step programs and the ancient wisdom of yoga. It's the practical application of the steps. The Leadership training teaches you how to create safe space and then hold that space safe for the meetings. Once you've done both of those you are a certified leader and can create your own meeting.

Important Notice

To be fully qualified to host Y12SR meetings you must complete both the Intensive as well as the Leadership Training.

The Intensive

The Y12SR Intensive is a weekend workshop for those interested in deepening ‘understanding and application’ of the 12-step program and its symbiotic relationship with yoga. The intensive focuses on the ‘understanding and application’ of both yoga and the 12-steps.
