YOGA FOR RECOVERY
A practical guide for healing
Co-written with Andrew Moore, this book supports individuals in substance abuse recovery in maintaining a home-based yoga practice, while utilizing a set of yoga and mindfulness-based exercises proven to support those in recovery.
Yoga for Recovery: A Practical Guide for Healing is a resource for developing a trauma-sensitive yoga practice to support anyone in recovery or seeking personal growth.
This guide provides a partial approach for developing a complete yoga and mindfulness practice, including breathing techniques, mindful movement, and meditation. With helpful tools for dealing with stress, tension, addiction, and anxiety, this book is for people who would otherwise not have access to yoga, or who would like to continue their practice outside of a studio setting.
“We view recovery as a shift in perspective and life-long behavioral changes. Our programming is driven by the recognition that individuals have the power to take their wellbeing into their own hands. This book provides the practical tools to support them along the way.”
— Nicole Breen, Transformation Yoga Project Director of Recovery

CHECK OUT MIKE'S NEWEST BOOK
Going Om is a behind-the-scenes look at life in a men’s correctional facility, complete with alarming and surprisingly funny stories. Mike Huggins shares letters he had written from inside, lessons he had learned along the way, and how he discovered his true calling and ultimate sense of purpose.
Yoga gave Huggins the strength, direction, and tools he needed to shift from his role as a corporate executive on the outside to sharing a cell in our often-corrupt prison system. Before long, he started teaching incarcerated men breathing exercises, anger management, and how to take yoga off the mat to be spiritually free.
