CARE (Compassionate Addiction Recovery Experience) facilitates recovery for those facing addiction, either directly or indirectly. Participants will discover a gentle and compassionate path to addiction recovery through the holistic benefits of gentle movement, breathing, stillness, aromatherapy, and healing energy modalities. CARE promotes a deeper sense of awareness, thus returning the body and mind to its natural state of balance.
The class is designed for those seeking an alternative approach for overcoming self-destructive and addictive behaviors. CARE is ideal for anyone suffering from addictive behaviors, including family members and others requiring tools to cope with loved ones experiencing addiction.
CARE allows participants to develop a unique and individualized plan to attain optimal outcomes for recovery whether it be for themselves or for those for whom they are providing care and treatment
CARE was developed by Lori Bower, M.Ed., E-RYT 500, HNA Director of Integrative Wellness
CARE is taught by Matthew Bower who completed his 200-Hour training with Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee through their studio, Yoga Shanti. He is passionate about health and wellness and finds the benefits of yoga significant in his personal life, both on and off the mat. He finds that yoga gives his mind a chance to rest and allows him to be truly present. The sense of serenity and contentment yoga brings keeps him engaged and eager to continue learning and practicing. Matt?s goal when teaching is for his students to experience the peace, strength, and joy yoga has brought to him and, most of all, to have fun. He is also a certified Reiki practitioner which he offers in his classes.
