This class is for people in Recovery and it is FREE!
In recent years, the addiction treatment and recovery communities have started incorporating CrossFit training into addiction recovery programs as a way to divide a client’s focus between two sets of goals that are mutually beneficial: getting sober and getting fit. Addiction recovery isn’t easy — no surprise there. Neither is CrossFit. Both disciplines challenge a person to push themselves beyond their comfort zone to achieve their goals. As it turns out, they are the perfect partners to achieving success in both areas. Using CrossFit as a complementary discipline to addiction recovery works well because it requires focus and provides a positive distraction from the stresses inherent to the recovery process. Through physical training participants will learn to be fighters and not to give up, which is a powerful message that carries over to the more emotional or psychological aspects of recovery. Join us for a great workout led by professional CrossFit coaches!
This group will provide a space for individuals interested in deepening their meditation practice within a supportive recovery sangha (community). Practicing meditation with a sangha can promote consistency with our individual home practice and enhance our inner sight (insight) by sharing our direct and present experience internal with others. The facilitator will guide meditation practices, and participants will also have the opportunity to guide meditations for the group. After meditation sessions, the group will debrief about what they noticed during their practice. Meditations practiced in this group will follow the most recent topic discussed in the Mindfulness-Based Recovery Group, however, participation in the Mindfulness-Based Recovery Group is not required to attend this group. This group is for anyone in recovery interested in developing a meditation practice. No prior experience with mediation is required. All are welcome!
