Yana Khashper, is a co-founder of ROCovery Fitness in Rochester, New York. She is originally from New York City and has been in the Western New York area since 2012. Yana is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with extensive experience in trauma, addictions, and mental health. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from New York University and went on to work with The New York City Fire Department Counseling Unit where her focus was to provide services to firefighters and emergency personnel of the FDNY impacted by the WTC tragedy and other disasters. Yana’s addiction took hold of her life during this time leading to complete incapacitation. She struggled for years before finding recovery. When she entered recovery, she experienced a sense of loss, lack of purpose and overwhelming sense of emotional pain. It was not until she found physical activity and exercise that she felt a sense of freedom and purpose in her life. In her darkest hour, Yana was able to find peace in letting go of old ideals and creating a new life founded on healing and healthy living. She became passionate about bicycling, weight-lifting, kayaking, and getting out into the outdoors. Most of all, she found that being outdoors has significantly strengthened her spirituality and given her added tools she needed to live sober and free. She wants to share this gift with others who are on similar journeys of their own. Get busy living!!
Yana and I discuss tools that people in recovery can practice during these challenging times and virtual programming offered by ROCovery Fitness that you can participate in.
