Yoga Therapy + Mindfulness for Addictions CPD Training
Yoga is a remarkable practice that builds self-awareness, strength, clarity of mind, and resilience. By clearly understanding how yoga can promote psychological and physical changes, we can tailor practices to support the person and help prevent relapse.
The Minded Addiction Recovery Kit (MARK) component of the training uses an integrative yogic-based approach to share regulatory tools for body and breath; mindful awareness highlights repetitive thinking and advanced facilitation supports the process.

Since my training, I have been running a group each week for almost two years and the feedback we get each week is honestly touching. It has had a profound impact on not only the service users lives, but also my own.
How is the course structured?
The training has a three-tiered approach—physiology, psychology, and behaviour—so as to greatly enhance the likelihood of preventing relapse and overcoming addictions.
This training imparts knowledge on:
- Why we become addicted to substances and behavioral patterns
- Which underlying neurological and psychological tendencies make people more vulnerable to addiction
- How different substances impact the physiological systems of the body
- What happens in the brain when we practice yoga and mindfulness and how this knowledge can be applied to people struggling with substance abuse
- Specific yoga practices for addiction and recovery
- How the yogic perspective supports long term change
- Explore a kriya from Kundalini Yoga as part of the MARK course
- What mindfulness is and how we can teach people to be with the mind
- How yoga and mindfulness can be integrated into a CBT framework for working with addictions
- How to promote feelings of safety in class and in the world
- What kinds of long-term goals and practices can be created for helping people to remain substance free
