"Addiction is neither a choice nor primarily a disease. It originates in a human being's desperate attempt to solve a problem... The first questions is not 'Why the addiction?' but 'Why the pain?' " - Dr. Gabor Mate
I'm Jake Yoder, sobriety coach, mountain guide, and mindfulness teacher.
For 6 years I was a heavy, daily cannabis user & addict using multiple addictions to medicate severe anxiety. A spiritual awakening at 19 years old led me to finally quit weed, alcohol, nicotine & all drugs, and transform my life through holistic health and mindfulness. After nearly a decade of exploring many different recovery pathways and wellness modalities, I created the Natural Highs Coaching Programs to share the tools that helped me overcome addiction and find greater balance in all areas of my life.
To this day, my greatest passion is exploring & practicing wellness, and helping others do the same. In the Inner Ascent Group Coaching program, I've teamed up with a therapist and nutritionist to give a comprehensive view of holistic health specifically designed to help you thrive in sober life. Whether you're just starting the journey of recovery / sobriety or you've been on the path for quite some time, this course can further your wellbeing.
“The Inner Ascent course opened me further to rewiring my nervous system with mindful somatic tools and breath work practices I hadn’t explored as in-depth. In our little tribe cultivated by Jake, we truly shared ourselves. My body and nervous system shed tears as it has so badly needed the reminder to ground and come back home."

Sobriety is more about STARTING something than STOPPING something.
This means creating a healthy internal FOUNDATION. To do so, we need holistic health strategies that empower us to FEEL GREAT naturally.
