Expert on Addiction Recovery

Certified Anusara Yoga Teacher Gail Corvette. Sober since 1995, she credits her Anusara Yoga Teacher training (ten years into her recovery) for finally accepting her disease and feeling whole. She has two certifications for teaching the recovery population: S.O.A.R. (Success Over Addiction and Relapse) geared toward teaching recovering addicts in treatment centers and Y12SR (Yoga of 12-Step Recovery) focused on a public 12-step meeting and themed practice. She is Anusara’s Subject Matter Expert on Addiction Recovery and presented on this topic at Samavesha in 2016.

She has taught yoga to the recovery population since 2011: in a private home to members of Alcoholics Anonymous, to inpatients and outpatients at the County-run drug and alcohol rehab center, on retreats, at Conventions, for fundraisers, and in a weekly Y12SR meeting at the County rehab center for the patients, members of “A” groups and the recovery community.
