Yoga is an integral part of the Cornerstone Healing Center addiction recovery model. Numerous studies have shown the benefits of yoga for a stronger mind-body connection. A recent review of the positive benefits of yoga for drug and alcohol addicts shows:
For these reasons and many more, we provide members in all our outpatient rehab programs with the opportunity to develop a safe, therapeutic and satisfying yoga practice. This skill can be instrumental in addiction recovery and lead to a happier life overall.
Yoga practice for addiction is similar to what you’d encounter at a gym or studio. Each yoga class at our Scottsdale treatment facility includes:
Deep breathing techniques that improve yoga abilities, and that can be used outside the yoga studio to achieve relaxation and mindfulness.
A recent report on yoga for addiction found yoga is an ideal complement for the 12 Step Program. Yoga teaches how to become more in tune with sensations and one’s body. These skills are crucial for addiction recovery.
Whether you or your loved one is a yoga pro or has never been to a single class, yoga is a practice that can be learned and mastered by anyone. Our clients learn yoga in a supportive, no-judgement environment. The techniques you learn in yoga are directly applicable to recovery and everyday life.
At Cornerstone Healing Center, yoga is provided at both our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). These programs are available during the daytime and evening hours.
Yoga complements other wellness programs for clients that we offer, including nutrition therapy, life skills and meditation.
Successful addiction recovery requires treatment not just for the body, but for mental and spiritual areas, as well.
