Yoga Training Q & A

What are the benefits of yoga?

Yoga practice allows you to take a moment for self-reflection, to help you focus your attention on your health and recovery. The benefits of yoga include:

  • Natural anxiety relief
  • Improved stress management
  • Increased physical stamina
  • Pain relief
  • Improved sleep

Yoga helps patients restore their spiritual, physical, and mental health. Yoga is an effective tool that patients can use throughout their recovery to cope with stress and foster positive, healthy habits. 

How does yoga training support addiction recovery?

Yoga is a popular choice to compliment comprehensive drug and alcohol treatment programs. At Satori Recovery Center, yoga training is used in addition to treatments like talk therapy and pharmaceutical support to help patients cope with the physical and psychological effects of their addiction. The team works with patients to develop individualized treatment plans specific to the needs of their recovery. 

Yoga is a simple, effective practice that doesn’t require complicated equipment or a special location. Outside of rehab, patients can use their yoga training to increase self-awareness and clear the mind. 

Yoga practice can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and combines specific postures with intentional, controlled breathing. Yoga helps you relieve stress and recenter your mind. Having a healthy outlet for stress and discomfort is essential to achieving long term recovery. Yoga also helps reinforce other positive habits like healthy eating and regular exercise. 

How does yoga training affect the brain?

Long term abuse of drugs or alcohol causes changes to the pathways of the brain, altering the way addicts experience pleasure, decision making, and other emotions. While you’re in recovery, yoga training helps support the healing of these pathways, promoting stress reduction and balancing the brain and body. Yoga has been shown to help modulate the body’s stress response, which regulates hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. 

Satori Recovery Center specializes in mindfulness meditation, a practice that encourages patients to acknowledge the thoughts and triggers that lead to their alcohol and drug use. Mindfulness meditation is an effective tool in relapse prevention, empowering patients to intervene in their habitual behaviors. Combining mindfulness meditation can further improve your recovery efforts.
