Let's talk about how yoga helps conquer addiction and speed recovery on our next Facebook Live on Tuesday, 2/13 at 2:30 pm on our page. Kula teacher Maria Salvatore will share her own personal experience with substances and abuse, and how she overcame her issues to become a happier person. That's the name of the game. We all want to feel better. So whether you're dealing with addiction or working to understand this issue, we will provide insight.

You'll want to meet Maria. She is an awesome person, yoga teacher, mother, volunteer and survivor. She's been practicing yoga for 16 years. "My primary intention is to help people learn to heal themselves," she says. She's dealt with anxiety, addiction, body image issues and broken relationships. Yoga helped her turn her life around.

She teaches yoga for Kula for Karma to women in recovery at Integrity House in Secaucus. She also teaches near her hometown of Rivervale, New Jersey. She believes that everyone has the potential to feel contentment, and she uses asana as a tool to guide her students toward inner peace. To her, yoga opens the pathways to more openness, compassion, mindfulness and healing. Join us, and meet her on Tuesday on Facebook! We can't wait!
