I was always interested in alcohol and drug recovery and rehabilitation. So several years after I became a certified yoga instructor, I became interested in working with recovering addicts. I became a drug counselor in the hopes that I could combine yoga and recovery.
Many people refer to a single point of awakening at which recovery and transformation begin. It may be a near-death experience, a rite of passage, or even a poignant word from a friend that makes us pause and re-evaluate.
