Yoga is known for its power to calm the mind and promote the body’s ability to self-heal. Yoga therapy is a mind-body approach that can help you develop awareness, strength, and resilience. In our yoga therapy program, you will explore different yoga poses and breathing techniques that are designed to help you reduce stress, ease withdrawal symptoms, and improve your overall well-being. Whether you are new to yoga or have been practicing for years, our yoga therapy program will meet you where you are at and help you on your journey to recovery.
At Footprints Beachside Recovery, we offer yoga as an experiential therapy to help you reconnect to yourself and manage any pain associated with addiction and mental health disorders. If you are interested in learning more about our yoga therapy program, or any of our other alternative addiction therapy options, please contact us today.
How We Use Yoga Therapy in Your Treatment
Yoga has been shown to naturally balance parts of your brain and body that have been affected by alcohol or drug addiction. When you start your treatment at Footprints Beachside Recovery, we incorporate yoga therapy into your schedule once a week to help you learn breathing and mindfulness techniques that can help you:
- Reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms
- Prevent relapse
- Cope with triggers and everyday stresses in your life
- Build a foundation for long-term recovery
If you find that yoga is an effective experiential therapy, you have the flexibility to incorporate it into your schedule twice a week. When possible, we will conduct our yoga sessions on the beach to help you focus on being in the present moment and connect with yourself in a natural environment.
Why Should You Consider Yoga at Footprints Beachside Recovery?
We use yoga in tandem with our traditional, evidence-based treatments because of the many physical, mental, and emotional benefits it offers. Yoga practice will help increase the physical strength and stamina you may have lost during your addiction. There is a range of additional benefits of practicing yoga, including:
- It helps you get into a healthy exercise routine
- Yoga can increase your energy levels
- You’ll find it reduces fatigue
- It can relieve any physical pain you’re feeling
Your addiction has negatively impacted how your brain regulates emotions, impulses, and decisions. Regular yoga practice can help improve those aspects of the brain, allowing you to heal emotionally, sleep better, and grow your self-awareness.
Improving Mental Health with a Yoga Therapy Program
Yoga also has a major impact on your mental well-being because it helps to balance out stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. This allows you to better cope with stress, depression, anxiety, and trauma. When you’re ready to leave treatment and transition back into your life, the skills you’ve learned through yoga therapy will help you manage triggers and stressful situations.
Yoga therapy is an integral part of the addiction treatment program at Footprints Beachside Recovery. If you’re ready to start your journey to recovery, contact us today to learn more about our program.
