Finding Serenity in Sobriety

I am now offering addiction support at my office or on zoom with a three month commitment. I can help you sort through all the personal, emotional and spiritual hurdles that come with sobriety. I use a body centered approach when working with goal setting, and healing past trauma that often arises when a substance is removed from our daily routine. Addiction can range from technology and porn to substances to people and they are all based within the same human experience which requires a spiritual approach. Additional support with one of the many the 12-step programs is recommended but not required. If you need a compassionate and body centered approach to your recovery than look no further. 

Yoga of Recovery is for anyone in recovery from the white chip to the anniversary chip and anyone looking to overcome self-destructive or addictive tendencies. Family members of addicts, yoga teachers, therapists and counselors will also find this workshop enlightening. Yoga of Recovery combines Yoga, Ayurveda and 12-step principles to create a holistic approach to recovery. The 6 Tenets of YoR form the foundation starting with Life is Longing and ending with Life is Progress. This class is a stepping stone to transformation using yoga therapy techniques that delve deep into our compulsive behaviors. Chitra has over 15 years of experience teaching yoga and over 6 years in recovery in the Charlottesville community.  She studied YoR with Durga Leela starting in 2011 and has been offering classes ever since.

"You will feel safe and relaxed from the moment you walk in. The questions Chitra encourages you to explore were a catalyst for the next level of my recovery. I highly recommend.
