Using Yoga to Find Harmony & Restoration
Stress is a major trigger of substance misuse for many women. Chronic pain, trauma, loss of employment, or marital problems — and sometimes just everyday problems — can cause women to turn to drugs and alcohol as a way of coping. Giving them ways to relieve their stress is, therefore, an important component of addiction treatment.
Yoga is a way of clearing the mind and relaxing the body, which makes it a natural therapeutic tool in addiction treatment. At Avery Lane, our program includes yoga classes that are designed to help women relieve and control stress, thereby removing a possible trigger for relapse. Yoga also strengthens the body, which provides additional health benefits.
Yoga also helps in the development of mindfulness. Women who are dealing with addiction are often unable to focus on the moment. Guilt about their past and worries about their future can rob them of life in the present. When experienced all at once, the problems of life can seem overwhelming. The practice of mindfulness trains women with addictions to let go of their pasts and futures so they can be fully present in the now. When they focus only on the present, their problems become more manageable, and they can learn to control stress. This can be an important component of achieving and maintaining sobriety.
At Avery Lane, we integrate the practice of Yoga into our holistic approach to addiction recovery. Recognizing the powerful connection between physical movement, mental clarity, and emotional well-being, our yoga program is designed to support and enhance the healing process for women overcoming addiction.
Benefits of Yoga in Addiction Recovery
Yoga, a practice that combines physical postures, breath control, and meditation, offers a multifaceted approach to recovery. It’s a tool not just for physical rehabilitation but also for mental and emotional resilience. In addiction recovery, Yoga is a nurturing and grounding practice, aiding in developing self-awareness, discipline, and inner peace.
