Yoga is Beneficial in Recovery
Any type of exercise is beneficial to the body. Whether it be walking, biking or practicing yoga, keeping your blood flowing and body moving helps your overall health, especially while in recovery. Yoga specifically can calm the mind and center your body, which can be very helpful in recovery.
There are many benefits to practicing yoga. First, it can decrease agitation and lessen symptoms of anxiety which are usually high in recovering addicts. It can also help you develop inner peace. Centering your inner peace can only allow negativity to leave your life, leaving room for only positivity. Additionally, yoga can help maintain your weight. Many times when one is addicted to drugs, he or she will lose a substantial amount of weight. When coming off the drugs and returning to a normal lifestyle, it is normal to pack on a few pounds. Yoga can help maintain this and keep your body healthy.
