In recent years, yoga has proved itself as an effective treatment for addictions. 21st Century Yoga contributors Chelsea Roff and Tommy Rosen can attest to the healing power of this ancient practice: Roff healed from anorexia and Rosen recovered from drug addiction with yoga. In this podcast, both authors speak to co-editor Carol Horton about their experiences.
Tommy Rosen is a certified Vinyasa Flow and Kundalini yoga teacher, and a leading authority on addiction and recovery. He is a pioneer in the relatively new field of Yoga and Recovery, which utilizes yoga and meditation to help people move beyond addiction and build fulfilling lives. Tommy teaches yoga at Naam Yoga LA and Bhakti Yoga Shala, and runs workshops and retreats internationally. He lives with his wife in Venice, CA.
Chelsea Roff is a writer by day and yoga teacher by night. Currently Managing Editor at Intent.com, her writing has appeared in Yoga Journal, Elephant Journal, and Yoga Modern. Chelsea is passionate about using online media to inspire action that serves a greater cause, and travels the country writing about how modern yoga is evolving in the most non-traditional of spaces – from festivals to public protests to centers for at-risk youth. She currently lives in Santa Monica, CA.
