“Living in the now”, a mantra of mindfulness, is a concept the active addict may not be ready to embrace. What Bari from YFR does well is to make something abstract “tangible” such as meditation and simple yoga flows that serve all types of patients. She also helps to eradicate the fear and stereotypes associated with mindfulness practices as something that caters only to the affluent or the freakishly flexible.
Having Liz come to Carolina Center for Recovery is one of my favorite things about our facility. Being someone in recovery I’ve learned and witnessed yoga improving the severity of depression, anxiety, and other psychiatric symptoms. The passion Liz has for the recovery community is truly inspiring and we can’t thank her enough.
