YogaYoga can be a very powerful healing tool when it comes to overcoming and recovering from an addiction. It provides you with spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental benefits. The movements and exercises allow you to learn how to take control over the choices and actions that you make, and it allows you to have something active that you can do to prevent a future relapse. Here at New Creation Treatment, we allow you to join in different activities, including Yoga, that can benefit you not only during your time at rehab but also for years to come if you keep practicing what you learn when you are with us.

Benefits of Yoga When Recovering from Addiction

When you are first getting past your addiction, your body is struggling both inside and out. Addiction will take a toll on your body, whether you like it, or meant to, or not. Your body needs to try and recover while still ridding itself of the leftover toxins from your addiction, which is no easy task. Yoga gives your body the ability to continue to heal and recover while building up strength and endurance, which your body may sorely be lacking. On top of this rebuilding, there are many other benefits to making Yoga a part of your daily routine, including:

  • Increasing your body’s flexibility
  • Increasing your overall cardiovascular health and performance
  • Reducing unnecessary weight while increasing muscle tone
  • Balancing out your metabolism
  • Increased respiratory function and oxygenation within your body
  • Improved overall strength, which can prevent injuries from everyday occurrences
  • Increased energy for daily tasks and exercise
``Change is not only inevitable but always happening. When you truly embrace this concept of change being constant, the only thing left to do is grow, detach, venture inwards, touch the spirit and find your source — the one responsible for keeping you grounded through the ever-changing seasons of life.`` — Julie Weiland

These benefits are good for everyone’s body, not just those who are recovering from an addiction. One of the great things about yoga is that you can do it a little bit at a time and the results are cumulative, so long as you make it a regular part of your routine. On top of that, you can also do yoga with your family members or friends once you leave New Creation Treatment and return home, giving you an activity that can help to rebuild bonds with people you may not have the strongest relationships with anymore.

Who Can Benefit from Doing Yoga Regularly

It doesn’t matter what age you are when you come to New Creation Treatment, you can benefit from yoga. You can do a little, or you can make yoga the main focus of your life and get some amazing health benefits out of it. Yoga, when done right, can be safe for children up through the matriarchs of the family, and it can be something that is adjusted to make sure that each person that does it, can keep up. Yoga allows you to adjust things like:

  • The intensity of your workout
  • Which movements you do or avoid, based on health needs
  • If you use weights, blocks to lift you up, or other apparatus’ to make the workout more or less powerful
  • Which parts of the body you focus on
  • The breathing that you do along with each movement
