Potential benefits from yoga therapy include stress reduction, psychological well-being, improved diet, and efficient functioning of bodily systems. Yoga therapy practice can resemble physical therapy, rehabilitative therapy, and/or psychotherapy. Unlike a standard yoga class, yoga therapy sessions are typically conducted in one-on-one or small group settings. Yoga therapy can be provided as an adjunct therapy to complement other forms of treatment, or it can be used to directly treat a specific issue. Yoga techniques range from simple to advanced, and can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
FOR OUR RECOVERY PATIENTS:
YOGA OF 12-STEP RECOVERY IS A HOLISTIC MODEL DESIGNED TO ADDRESS THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL DISEASE OF ADDICTION.
The characteristics and effects of addiction could easily be described as separation. Addictive behaviours disconnect us from ourselves, our loved ones, our environment and so much more.
Conversely, yoga itself means union, integration, balance. Yoga and its practices teach the fine art of balancing our multidimensional lives while living in a complex world.
Yoga 12-Step Recovery was created as a holistic model to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction. Informed by the latest research in neuroscience and trauma healing, Y12SR “connects the dots” by combining the somatic approach of yoga with the cognitive approach of the 12-step recovery model – the most well-known addiction recovery program in the world, with millions of active practitioners.
