NamaStay Sobruary ChallengeFeb 01, 2021 12:38PM ● By Daralyn Chase
NamaStay Sober is holding their 4th annual Sobruary (Sober February) Challenge. Whether someone is already in recovery, sober-curious or just looking to swap a misused habit for something healthy like meditation or yoga, NamaStay has resources that can help. Whatever wellness journey you are on in life and wherever you find yourself on that journey, NamaStay invites you to participate in the Sobruary Challenge alongside their community this year.
NamaStay Sober is a nonprofit organization founded in 2015 by Nico Longo after the loss of a friend to opioid addiction. Based in Massachusetts with community chapters in other states, their mission is to aid those in recovery by reconnecting their bodies and minds through affordable yoga, fitness, meditation and wellness-focused community events.
“It is difficult to put into words how grateful I am for @namastaysober. In its infancy, NamaStay provided solace in a time when I was grieving the loss of a dear friend to addiction. Over time, it developed into a place where I felt safe to share about my own struggles with an eating disorder. Eventually it led me to discover a community of like-minded individuals that support one another through healthier outlets, such as yoga and meditation, so that we all may live a life of more freedom, self-expression and peace.” says Longo “In essence that is what this year’s Sobruary Challenge is all about - supporting each other in discovering what we put in the space that sobriety creates.”
