Recovery Yoga Network
Helping you recover from life.
In an effort to effect TRUE RECOVERY MAINTENANCE, The Recovery Yoga Network merges proven, practical tools of established recovery programs with the traditional mind/body practices of yoga.
WORKING WITH YOU
RECOVERY YOGA NETWORK works to create a resource and sustainable pathway to recovery from addiction, codependency, eating disorders, and other maladaptive patterns present in modern society.
We humbly acknowledge that recovery means different things to different people.
WHY YOGA for RECOVERY?
Yoga has long been used to help relieve stress, and scientific evidence has provided a link between practicing yoga and the reduction of stress by modulation of the stress response, Harvard Health reports. When a person feels stress, heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, and body temperature increase. Yoga may actually act on this system by regulating and balancing some of the stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline.
SELF-ACCEPTANCE AND SUSTAINABLE RECOVERY
RECOVERY YOGA NETWORK serves people impacted by trauma, addiction, and co-occurring disorders recover through trauma-sensitive, mindfulness-based yoga.
The spring board for developing these programs arises from the same fundamental teaching of yoga that: we bear responsibility for reducing suffering in ourselves; and once we have achieved a level of health we are to be of service to others.
More and more programs are focusing on a “whole person” approach that incorporates a variety of methods and tools to help achieve, maintain, and enhance recovery.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Just as talk therapy is important to the success of a client’s recovery, the somatic healing benefits of Yoga are critical to move trauma out of the body. Many clients slip in to addiction to numb feelings or pain and disassociate from their body. Addiction is simply a result of the crisis of disconnection. Somatic healing through yoga and other mindful movement practices allow client’s to safely learn how to recognize uncomfortable or painful emotions, teaches them new ways of gaining control of these thoughts and emotions, and connects mind body and spirit.
