Breaking Barriers: Exploring Personal Samskaras

Codependence has been described as ‘the addiction to look elsewhere.’ It’s the belief that something outside of ourselves; people, places, things, behaviors or experiences, can give us fulfillment and joy. This is not only the most common addiction, it is the base out of which all other addictions and compulsions arise.

Codependents can have difficulty: experiencing appropriate levels of self-esteem, setting functional boundaries, making decisions and/or verbalizing requests. A serious dis-order which can be life threatening under certain conditions, codependency is often expressed as the need to control or be controlled and/or approval seeking or confrontation avoidant.

At its heart, codependency has to do with our search for our true selves. When we find our true self and connect it with some bigger energy or higher power, we are free to relate to others in a way that opens deeply fulfilling relationships with ourselves, others and the Divine.

Using lecture, discussion, experiential exercises and the tools of yoga (asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting, etc.) this intensive examines the root of codependency and presents tools for healing through a process of awareness, self-love and creativity.

Nikki Myers is an accomplished yoga therapist, teacher and practitioner. She is the founder of CITYOGA School of Yoga and Health in Indianapolis, IN. From her personal struggles with addiction, Nikki is quick to tell the world, ‘The 12-step program and Yoga saved my life – one is my lifeboat, the other my launching pad.’ Y12SR has been featured in Yoga Journal and the New York Times.
