The Body's Natural Detox
Drug and alcohol addiction compromises the mind and the body’s ability to function properly. Toxic buildup reduces the brain’s ability to regulate and produce neurotransmitters, creates an imbalance in the glandular system and weakens the nervous system. As a result, the client becomes detached from their body and challenged in executing basic physical, mental and emotional functions.
Yoga provides techniques that help our clients deal with the uncomfortable physical sensations that arise during the detox process. The benefits are many as Yoga will help detox organs, reduce stress, increase energy, improve physical fitness, repair brain chemistry, achieve balance, maintain self-discipline and learn how to cope with difficult moments. Through Yoga, the client can reset the relationship with their body, helping them release toxins in a less stressful manner and begin to interact with the world with a “ new biological operating system“.
Our yoga program is designed specifically for the client who is in recovery. A steady practice may help to:
- Improve the function of blood chemistry, food metabolism and the nervous and glandular systems.
- Provide nutritional guidelines on proper ingestion of foods that cleanse and rebuild the body system.
- Reinvigorate the energy system of recovery clients along with their spiritual energy.
- Plant the seeds for a new lifestyle that will be adopted and used to help improve the quality of life for each recovery center graduate
