Mindful Movement (Yoga)
Mindful movement is for all individuals interested in learning mindfulness, embodiment, and cultivating peace in recovery. This yoga is safe for everyone including persons who have endured trauma, dissociation, and/or any out of body experiences. The underlying goal is to meet everyone where they are at, and for participants to always feel safe and whole in their body. We will create and facilitate a movement and breath practice that is supportive to each person wherever they are on their recovery journey, and take the time to intentionally connect to our hearts, minds, and community each week through this practice. We do this by understanding of complex trauma, attachment theory, and the neuroscience underpinning the Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga methodology. https://www.traumasensitiveyoga.com

Project Vox is a grassroots collaborative comprised of individuals in recovery, their family members, friends, supporters, and other allies. Project Vox seeks to honor, support, celebrate and promote the positive experience of recovery and to overcome the stigma of addiction. The organization strives to accomplish this through recovery promotion, public awareness, education, and advocacy.
To unify the voice of the recovery community in order to reshape public attitudes and eliminate the discrimination toward individuals who are living with an addiction to alcohol or other drugs.
Project Vox envisions a community where it is recognized that it is possible to live a life in long term recovery, and where full access to treatment and resources are available.
Project Vox provides information and testimony to state lawmakers in an effort to dispel myths around addiction that further stigma. As a result of our ongoing advocacy work, Michigan policy makers recognize that treatment funding should be a priority when considering state budgets.
Project Vox members facilitate informational programs throughout Macomb County designed to educate our community leaders and neighbors about substance use, the nature of addiction and the paths to recovery. We also provide a variety of educational opportunities to our members, including: Messaging Training, Narcan 101, Legislative Updates, Stigma Reduction Training.
Project Vox hosts local events throughout the year, designed to create a supportive, welcoming environment for individuals in recovery. These activities have included our annual river cruise, Art from the Heart, artists in recovery art shows, and other casual opportunities for recovery socialization such as movie nights, ice skating and pool parties. These events are held in addition to our monthly general meetings, are organized by our members, and are open to anyone in recovery (whether a current Project Vox member or not) and their families.
