Freedom from Addiction
Laird has become a regular fixture at the Golden Bridge. When she first
started doing yoga, she cried during and after class. "But," she says, "I
knew I was in a healthy, supportive atmosphere, where I could allow these
emotions to surface." Those emotions still surface, but they no longer
smother her. When she experiences anger and depression, she can watch these
feelings melt away by using her breath to quiet her mind. "I no longer
succumb to the drama," she says with relief.
