Recovery Yoga: We're All in Recovery from Something

A free public talk and meditation program with Sean Weir.  The talk is followed by instructions in meditation and a group meditation.

The demands placed upon our modern day life necessitate an unprecedented level of mental as well as physical resilience (the ability to bounce back in the face of difficulties).  On a regular basis, we are all exposed to stressors that can have substantial impacts on our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.  These types of stresses affect everyone, from people working in the corporate world to parents and caregivers, and especially first responders, veterans and trauma survivors.

Yoga instructor Sean Weir draws on the teachings of Mindful Yoga Therapy, Yoga for Recovery (Y-12 SR), and 108 Monkeys Yoga for urban youth and underserved communities teacher trainings, and is particularly grateful for each opportunity to share these practices with the community.

Sean Weir served in both the United Kingdom and United States career Fire Services.  He is certified in both Florida and Connecticut as a fire fighter and in CT as a Fire Officer/Instructor and EMT.  After retiring from the West Haven Fire Department, Sean has transitioned to serve his fellow Responder community, providing yoga and mindfulness workshops.
