Are you ready to take the next step in your sober curious journey?
If you are someone who is sober or sober curious, have practiced yoga as part of that journey, and are passionate about helping others along the way, the Sober Curious Yoga Teacher Training is for you.
Alcohol sales have spiked in the pandemic, and so have mental health struggles, feelings of isolation and disconnection. But with that, people are waking up and searching for solutions, and a massive wave is beginning of sober curiosity.
The interest in Sober Curious Yoga has grown quickly because there is a need for a holistic program designed to help individuals create a life they don't need alcohol to escape from. Sober Curious Yoga is special because it is the only program out there that combines daily yoga, meditation, community, and coaching skills to help people change their relationship with booze and come home to themselves. As it grows, I want to train other individuals to help others, too!
Everyone is excited right now and hundreds of people have already transformed their lives through Sober Curious Yoga and achieved balanced, purposeful alcohol free lives. See some of our members feedback below...
"I found Alex McRobs and Sober Curious Yoga after I had gotten sober. I'd gone down a rabbit hole of Instagram following yoga and sober hashtags when suddenly I saw a comment Alex had made on a post. I messaged her and joined Sober Curious Yoga and immediately fell in love with the community.
I found Alex via a Facebook group, or she found me I can’t remember! Anyway the stars aligned and I started to think about trying yoga. I felt a great desire to try something new while also quitting alcohol. So from June 2020, I’ve done yoga almost every single day I think and on the odd day I’ve not done it I’ve dreamed about it! Alex had been so supportive to me throughout, always there always available as a coach, a friend and a role model who gets what this thing called “life” is all about. Stopping drinking alcohol has been life changing, but being a yogi and training and learning with Alex is right up there with one of the very best things to happen to me :-)))
@alexmcrobs for inviting me to the Sober Curious Yoga challenge to get me started.
