Addiction is any compulsive behavior that persists despite negative consequences. It may involve alcohol, drugs, eating, gambling, porn, shopping, co-dependency, over-working and more.
Margaret Kirschner specializes in trauma-informed yoga, an evidence-based therapy, in private sessions designed specifically for addiction recovery. She uses slow, simple and novel movements to help clients reclaim a capacity to feel sensations and a wide range of emotional states. The focus is on getting better at feeling. The practices provide a useful alternative to a return to use. She helps a client to identify unique trauma reactions and to practice a compassionate response using trauma-informed yoga to gradually guide the client to emotional balance. No previous yoga experience is necessary and the movements are accessible to all.

Therapeutic, dynamic breathwork with music, movement and vocalization encourages an expanded state of awareness for authentic connection with your inner teacher. It involves lying on the floor with blankets and an eye mask to foster an interior process. You will be invited to breathe in a way that is fast, deep and continuous while listening to loud music that tends to evoke powerful emotional and somatic releases. Emerging sensations and emotions are typically expressed as vocalizations, movements, postures, grimaces, shaking or tensing. One or both facilitators provide supportive assistance at all times by encouraging the energy to flow, amplifying the experience, holding space for the process to unfold and trusting its trajectory and organic wisdom. Frequently the outcome is one of deep relaxation and personal significance for the client. A period of integration follows that may include active listening and/or journaling.
Dynamic breathwork is not recommended for anyone with serious cardiovascular disorders, a history of seizures, untreated severe mental illness, or for pregnant women.
