Host Gail Ferguson Jones speaks with Nikki Myers, founder of the international relapse prevention program Y12sr (Yoga of 12-Step Recovery), which weaves the art and science of Yoga with the practical tools of the 12 steps.
Nikki is credited with coining the phrase "the dis-ease of the lost self" to best describe codependency.
In this episode she shares how Yoga is essential to the "inside job." of recovery from codependency, a relational pattern of relying on other people or things for a sense of validation.
"The issues are in the tissues," Nikki says, describing how Yoga restores balance and regulates the nervous system.
She also says there's ``something for all of humanity" in the 12 steps.
