Frequently Asked Questions

No experience necessary. Bethe has selected poses that are accessible and basic meditations that are easy to understand and get started with.

Not necessarily. Class is open to anyone who could benefit from the stress-relieving practice of yoga and the healing themes mentioned above. This includes people actively in recovery from eating disorders or substance use, but it also includes those who are simply curious about Recovery, or are recovering from other mental health concerns, or family, friends, and helping professionals.

Nope. While the themes of this class are useful to support your recovery, this is intended to be just a yoga class, not a group therapy session. If you’re on Zoom, your camera can be on or off. If you come in person, you’re welcome to chat with Bethe after, but there will not be a formal discussion.

If you are joining via Zoom, having a yoga mat at home will be helpful. If you come in person, mats are available in the C.A.L.M. Oasis. Clothing can be anything comfortable that allows you to move freely.
