    Ep. 12 Do the next right thing

    ➡️➡️➡️Join me for Yoga of Twelve Step Recovery https://www.luminousrecoveryyoga.com/yoga-of-12-step-recovery

    In this episode of Luminous Recovery Yoga, I explore one of my favorite recovery concepts "do the next right thing." This helps me both on and off the yoga mat. When I practice doing the next right thing on my mat, it teaches me how to bring this into the rest of my life. Whether it's the next right pose to take or time for a rest, this is something that takes practice. When I do the next right thing, I become more available in the moment to the great unfolding of life.

    The Tyranny of Should

    ➡️➡️➡️Join me for Yoga of Twelve Step Recovery https://www.luminousrecoveryyoga.com/yoga-of-12-step-recovery

    In this episode of Luminous Recovery Yoga, I explore the word "should." Or as I like to say "should-ing all over." The definition of 'should': used to indicate obligation, duty, or correctness typically when criticizing someone's actions. How often are you "should-ing" on yourself and others? Where does this tend to come up for you?

    In this episode I share my experience, strength, and hope on the cause of suffering as laid out by the second noble truth of Buddhism. This ancient wisdom tells us that the root of suffering is wishing things were different and not accepting things as they are. This hit me like a ton of bricks this week. Every episode includes a little bit of yoga. I hope you enjoy it.

    How getting honest helps me recover

    How getting honest helps me recover

    ➡️➡️➡️Support the show

    This episode gets real honest. I share things in this episode that I tend to leave out of my recovery story. Lately, I've been struggling. Part of my struggle is that I'm not sharing what's really going on. So, I'm going to share that now and with you. It takes courage to change, and the first part of that is becoming aware. Thank you for listening.

A great recovery support

Kari has a passion for the intersection of 12 step recovery and yoga. This is an intersection well worth exploring. Each episode has a recovery focus combined with yoga practice, inviting the listener to take in the offering and feel its resonance in the body.
