Serenity House says thank you, namaste

Posted: February 5, 2012 - 9:00am

Substance abuse and addiction robs so much from individuals, families, and the local community.  It is important to remember that recovery is possible--and that many members of our community want to help.

As an example of community in action, Kelsey Cusack, highly qualified yoga instructor and owner of YogaSol in Soldotna, has volunteered to teach a twice-weekly restorative yoga class for Serenity House Treatment Center clients, contributing one class a week as a matching donation. Research shows the practice of yoga can actually change brain neurology and help to reduce the cravings, anxieties and fear which contribute to destructive behaviors.

And thanks to a generous donation from the Alaska Peace Officers Association (APOA), Serenity House Treatment Center will soon have the necessary yoga props, so these classes can take place for clients on-site, in the newly expanded Serenity House intake office.  Over 150 people year, in both residential and outpatient care, will benefit from this gift.

So with great appreciation, the staff, clients, and family members of Serenity House Treatment Center say "Thank you!" to the Alaska Peace Officers Association (APOA) and to Kelsey Cusack of YogaSol.
