The Value of Yoga in Recovery
Yoga is a unique practice, it provides mental, physical, and even spiritual benefits. The goal of practicing yoga is to learn to become comfortable in your own skin. This can be difficult for patients in early recovery. Yoga has the ability to help patients find and reconnect with who they are before their addiction, it can function as a coping strategy in dealing with stressful situations.
The physical benefits help rebuild strength providing a connection with body and breath- which promotes healing. Even a very gentle physical yoga practice will bring steadiness to the mind and help detoxify the body.
We believe by adopting a regular practice and going at your own pace, yoga will teach self-acceptance, release from mind, chatter, and control of body and breath.
