The Yoga of 12 Step Recovery in Havana, Cuba with Nikki Myers

Saturday May 6th, to Friday, May 12th, 2017
With Nikki Myers

Join us for 5 incredible Days in Cuba!

After a visit to Havana earlier this year, all I could envision was bringing the Y12SR posse back.  This trip is that dream come true! Please join us for an amazing adventure that includes a Havana immersion, connecting with the Cuban 12-step recovery community and the Cuban yoga community, daily Y12SR meetings and practices, and so much more.  You are invited to the inaugural Y12SR Cuba Immersion!

In addition, we will spend the week learning about the art, dance, music, history, social justice and politics within this “off-limits” island. Prepare to absorb and grow. We will weave daily Y12SR practices into this experience in one of the most fascinating cities in the world! Engage with and come to understand the Cuban people and walk away with a deeper understanding of Cuba’s story – past, present and future.
