Yoga for Recovery

Benefiting Trini Foundation

Suggested Donation | $10-25

A recurring, monthly, donation-based led Ashtanga class to help support the Trini Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the life-changing practice of Ashtanga yoga to those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Their mission is to provide yoga as a tool to aid in the recovery process and help those who are suffering maintain long-term sobriety.

We will move through the primary series at a pace suitable to those that attend, with modifications being offered.

Join us in changing the dialogue surrounding drug and alcohol addiction—from one of isolation to one of community and growth. Every dollar raised goes directly toward teaching Ashtanga yoga classes in treatment centers, and providing yoga tuition scholarships for individuals in recovery at studios across the country—including Yoga East.


About the Instructor | Emily Wall

Emily grew up in York, Maine, and has recently moved back since living in Georgia and Louisiana for the past five years. In 2015 while living in Athens, GA, she took the plunge to do a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified Hatha Yoga training. Shortly after her training she moved to Louisiana to get her master’s degree at LSU in environmental sciences. While living in Louisiana, Emily found her passion for Ashtanga yoga. She loves the connection she feels to herself and others, the strength you gain physically and mentally, and the ability to focus on the breath to truly be in the present moment.

Emily started practicing with Certified teacher Melanie Fawer in New Orleans, whom she did another 200-hr training with in 2017. Emily also studies with Taylor Hunt at Ashtanga Yoga Columbus, and completed the Ashtanga Yoga and Addiction Forum in the fall of 2018. She hopes to spread the life changing practice of yoga to others, and believes as long as you can breathe you can do yoga!
