• Yoga and The Twelve-Step Path
Yoga is not just a physical practice. Like twelve-step recovery, it is a journey along a spiritual path, with a code of ethics leading to contentment and bliss, and it can lead to spiritual union with one's higher power. In Yoga and the Twelve-Step Path, author Kyczy Hawk brings the powerful ancient practice of yoga with all of its diverse approaches and time-honored traditions to infuse and deepen the modern spiritual practice of the Twelve Steps of recovery, in an inviting, engaging read.

“You don’t need to be a ‘yogi’ for your recovery to benefit from this wonderful book. Kyczy Hawk shares practical strategies gleaned from years of yoga study and recovery. You will want to read, study, and practice these techniques and then share them with others in recovery. This book will deepen your recovery and sense of serenity, as it has mine.”

Yoga and The Twelve-Step Path is both an invitation and a profound gift. For anyone struggling with addiction, this book could be life-saving and certainly soul-saving. Conscious and cautionary, Ms. Hawk speaks to us as an authentic and powerful teacher who offers up her own compelling story in service to others. With quiet grace, clear direction, and the wisdom of experience, she gently guides the reader along a logical path to health, wellness and spiritual awakening.”

“Kyczy Hawk speaks compassionately from her own experience with addiction as she explores the parallels between yoga and the twelve-step path, weaving together a practical guide for enhanced healing.  This is a wonderful, life affirming resource! This book offers a comprehensive understanding of yogic concepts, practices and philosophy, including the eight limbs of raja yoga which endorse the ideals presented in recovery meetings, and Ayurveda medicine as it relates to addiction. Thank you, Kyzcy, for creating a bridge for those in recovery to discover yoga and those in yoga to understand addiction.”
Annalisa Cunningham
Author, Healing Addiction with Yoga

“Coming from the depths of her own experience of addiction, and her practice and study of yoga, Kyczy has written an eminently practical book showing how the application of an integrated yoga practice complements, enhances and enables recovery through the twelve-step approach. In a culture where addiction is endemic, this warm and heartfelt work will be helpful for those battling addiction, as well as students and teachers of yoga.”
