Introduction to Addiction

$25

with Jeff Goldsmith

Tuesday

Brief overiew of the biological, psychological, and sociofamilial dimensions as they influence the development of addiction and the recovery process.  I taught this course last fall, 2020, on Zoom.  I covered material for alcohol, cannabis, opiod, and stimulant use.  The classes began with 30 minutes of didactic and ended with an hour of discussion.  I am an Addiction Medicine doctor who ran fellowships for almost 20 years in Cincinnati.  I have been certified as a sub specialist in Addiction Medicine, 2018 the last time by the American Board of Preventive Medicine.  I was President-elect, President, and Past President of the American Society of Addiction Medicine from 2013-2019.

Yin Yoga

$25

with Andrea Gleason

Wednesday

Join Andrea Gleason for a gentle 'take it to the mat' Yin Yoga practice.  Slow yourself down, quiet your mind and get into your body.

Recommended yoga props:  mat yoga blocks, blanket, strap, bolster/firm pillow/rolled up beach towel and props.

By holding poses in a relaxed state, you'll exercise the non-elastic tissues in your body.  In other words, your connective tissues:  joints, ligaments, tendons, and fascia.  Using props to allow you to stop just at your edge of resistance, you will be able to target those cooler components of your body.

Yin Yoga can help to:

  • Calm and balance the mind and body
  • Regulate energy in the body
  • Increase mobility in the body, especially the joints and hips
  • Lower stress levels (Phew!)
  • Encourage greater stamina
  • Enhance lubrication and protection of joints
  • Boost your immune system

This class is appropriate for all levels.  We will be on the mat for the length of the class.

Andrea Gleason is certified by the Yoga Alliance as a 500 RYT, E-RYT and YACEP.  She is also a Master Reiki Practitioner and USATriathlon Coach, Level 1.

This is a 4-week course that focuses, in more depth than Intro to Addiction, on the disease of addiction, neurobiology of addiction, family dynamics of addiction, and co-occurring psychiatric illness with addiction.  I am board certified in addiction medicine and was president of the American Society of Addiction Medicine from 2015-2017.  I have taught a 5-week course, The Introduction to Addiction, and this is the advanced addition to it.  If you haven't taken the Introduction to Addiction already, you must be approved by the instructor to take Part II.
