The Yogic Path to Recovery
Anna will assist you in demoting old habits by using counselling methods that are based in: Beyond Addiction: The Yogic Path to Recovery program. This program has been supportive to many since 2008. Beyond Addiction is an internationally recognized treatment for anyone with addictive behaviours. The program was developed by Sat Dharam Kaur ND and Jivan Joti Kaur PhD, and integrates the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, Dr.Gabor Mate and experts in the addiction fields. Dr. Mate believes that the source of addiction is not to be found in genes but in early childhood environment and emotional loss.

Frequently Asked Questions
How will I connect to activities offered virtually at Yoga for Healing?
Once your payment is processed you will receive an invitation to a video conference using the Zoom platform.
What can I expect during my first Compassionate Inquiry session?
During the first Compassionate Inquiry session Anna will ask you some questions that will help her to understand you well (age, profession, health, and family background). The full confidentiality is very important to Anna. Any information you share with Anna will stay with Anna. You will then bring to the session the issue that you wish to resolve, and you will be facilitated to work through this with the Compassionate Inquiry approach.
Do virtual yoga workshops involve yoga practice?
Yes. You will be facilitated by Anna in your yoga practice, breathing exercises and meditation, with precise instructions and cues. It would be beneficial if Anna could see you practising but it is not crucial.
How do I prepare for the online yoga class?
Find a quiet space where you are, so there are no distractions. You also need a yoga mat, a cushion to sit on, a blanket, a note book and a pen. Most importantly, have available your electronic device that you will use to connect to the video conference, using Zoom.
