The Chakras & Recovery

An interactive workshop for people on the sober path including those who are sober curious.

Join Sadie in this illuminating workshop designed by someone on the sober path for others on the sober path, including those who are sober curious, alcohol and drug counselors, yoga teachers and mental health practitioners. 


Class will include experiential exercises, group discussions, and reflective practices to increase your understanding of the mind-body connection and its relevance to addiction and recovery. You'll gain insight into which energy centers (chakras) may require your attention and practical tools, including breathwork, movement, mindfulness, and mantra, to foster awareness, connection, inner peace and strength.

Meet Sadie Barr (she/her)

Hi! I'm Sadie and I'm a person in recovery. I'm also a Sobriety Mentor and Yoga and Meditation Teacher with over a decade of experience helping thousands of people affected by addiction find their center and reclaim their power.


My teachings are rooted in neuroscience, yoga philosophy, western psychology, meditation, breathwork, and Ayurveda. I holds a BS in Psychology and Human Development and is a Continuing Education Provider and 500hr Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance. Sadie’s meditations and courses on the Insight Timer app are rated among the top in their category.


I deeply struggled with addiction beginning at age 14- jails, institutions and near death. I've been clean and sober since 2011 and I use my personal experiences to inform my work as a professional.
