Recovery is defined as the action or process of regaining possession or control of something lost or stolen. An addiction can be defined as any behavior or action repeated compulsively in spite of having negative consequences. Addictions steal our ability to function in the world with grace, adaptability and clarity. In addiction, we lose connection with family, friends, society, and our True Self. Addictions are symptomatic manifestations of unresolved imbalances of the mind, body and spirit.

The Recovery Warrior practices including yoga, meditation, and personal coaching offer a safe, supportive space in which to regain possession of the True Self that addiction has stolen.

Carson Smith is the founder of The Recovery Warrior — Kicking Addiction in the Asana and creator of Recovery Warrior Yoga.
