YOGA OF 12-STEP RECOVERY IS A HOLISTIC MODEL DESIGNED TO ADDRESS THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL DISEASE OF ADDICTION.
The characteristics and effects of addiction could easily be described as separation. Addictive behaviors disconnect us from ourselves, our loved ones, our environment and so much more.
Conversely, yoga itself means union, integration, balance. Yoga and its practices teach the fine art of balancing our multidimensional lives while living in a complex world.
Yoga of 12-Step Recovery was created as a holistic model to address the physical, mental and spiritual dis-ease of addiction. Informed by the latest research in neuroscience and trauma healing, Y12SR “connects the dots” by combining the somatic approach of yoga with the cognitive approach of the 12-step recovery model – the most well-known addiction recovery program in the world, with millions of active practitioners.

SHE-CAN’s mission is to equip and empower young women from post-conflict countries to become leaders who change their nations.
Why? Many sources point to women as key to ushering peace, prosperity, and women’s rights into the developing world. Yet repressive cultural attitudes and lack of higher education prevents them from challenging the system. Widespread change requires an influential number be given opportunities to gain the credentials and confidence needed to defy the system they grew up in and thrive as change-agents and role models.

Lidè is an educational initiative in rural Haiti that uses the arts and literacy to empower at-risk adolescent girls and help them transition into school or vocational training. Established by Author Holiday Reinhorn, Actor Rainn Wilson and Executive Director Dr. Kathryn Adams in response to the devastating earthquake of 2010, the Lidè program seeks to uplift women and girls who have been denied equal access to education. Lidè trains and employs Haitian teachers and collaborates with grassroots schools and programs, such as “Smallholder Farmers Alliance”, “Fonkozé”, and “H.E.L.P.” In Lidè programs participants gain life and leadership skills and helps foster the community support they need to begin their educational journey.
The Lidè Foundation believes that arts in education inspires personal empowerment, resilience and self-efficacy. Lidè means both “Leader” and “Idea” in Haitian Creole.
