Shaura HallShaura Hall has a wealth of experience in addictions. She has been working to deliver yoga and relaxation in the
recovery field since 2009. She is a trained Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention facilitator and addictions recovery coach. As well as being a Yoga Therapist, a kundalini yoga teacher, she is also a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance and runs a 200HR Hatha Teacher Training Course. Shaura is currently working towards a BSc Hons in Health Sciences with the Open University, a certificate in supervision and regularly takes short yoga courses to support her journey.

Shaura understands how yoga can assist in recovery from direct personal experience. After years of addiction, she became relapse free in 2002 and began practicing yoga regularly as part of her recovery. Following a deep spiritual transformation through yoga, she decided to become a yoga instructor and has trained in the kundalini tradition since 2007. In 2011, Shaura trained with the Minded Institute developing further skills that helped her more effectively work with those who struggle with substance abuse. During that training (with Heather Mason), she studied the neurobiology of addiction, which has greatly influenced her understanding of addiction as both a physiological and a psychological process.
