At AToN Center, we offer yoga as part of our holistic healing program for men and women of all ages, fitness levels, and addiction histories. Individual and group yoga and meditation classes offer a number of advantages for clients working through every phase of addiction recovery. A complement to your non-12 step or 12-step recovery program, yoga’s benefits include:
- Physical healing. Yoga detoxifies the body and gives you the opportunity to tap into your body’s innate strength, flexibility, and endurance. It encourages you to connect with your body at a deep level, rather than disconnecting through the use of drugs and alcohol.
- Mental and emotional healing. Yoga is said to “steady the mind” as the participant focuses on achieving and sustaining posture and breathing. It is also thought to facilitate a cleansing release of emotions you may have had locked up for months, years, or decades.
- Stress relief. A study conducted by Harvard Medical School found evidence that yoga modulates stress response systems, lowers heart rate, reduces blood pressure, and slows respiration. The study also reported that yoga practices help to “increase heart rate variability, an indicator of the body’s ability to respond to stress more flexibly.”
As part of your customized drug or alcohol dependency treatment, AToN’s accredited addiction center is proud to offer therapies like mindfulness, meditation, and yoga. Through yoga practice and other holistic therapies, it is our goal to help you get in touch with the root of your addiction, release painful memories and traumatic experiences, and begin true healing and addiction recovery—from the inside out.
