So What is Namastay Sober?
Namastay Sober stands as a beacon of support—a safe, nonjudgmental, open-minded, and non-affiliated peer community group. Their mission is to help people reconnect mind and body through complimentary yoga, meditation, community conversations, engaging book clubs, and more. Their mission is clear and purposeful: aid individuals in recovery journies by fostering a holistic approach through fitness memberships, self-awareness, and wellness-focused events accessible to everyone.

Do I Need to be in Recovery from Drugs or Alcohol to become a Member?
No. Namastay Sober believes everybody is recovering from something. Members can be in recovery from eating disorders, depression, domestic violence, suicide attempt survivors, mental illness, etc.
For those in recovery, Namastay Sober extends Studio Scholarships—a one-year opportunity to access any of their studio partners. These affiliate partnerships are crafted to inspire and assist people in establishing and maintaining connections on their wellness journey.
