Yoga Therapy at Passages Ventura

Years of prolonged drug and alcohol abuse will cause your body to deteriorate as the lack of exercise, eating an unhealthy diet, and the constant bombardment of toxins cause a multitude of problems. Passages Ventura takes special note of this and offers many outdoor and indoor exercise programs to fight the effects of drug use on the body.

One of the many holistic modalities that we offer to steadily reverse the negative effects of drug and alcohol use is yoga. In conjunction with our physical training program, yoga is sure to get you on the path towards healing. As one of the many [substance abuse treatment methods] we utilize at Passages Ventura, yoga stretches the muscles and soft tissues in your body and releases the lactic acids that build up in the joints and cause stiffness, pain, and fatigue.

After several yoga sessions you will start to have a better range of motion, giving you a sense of ease and fluidity. Your muscles will start to strengthen, including your heart, and you will also notice an improvement in your cardio health.

Benefits of Yoga for Addiction Recovery

Yoga increases flexibility and core strength, which results in better posture and numerous health benefits. Yoga will also help you improve your deep breathing and lung capacity. This careful and controlled breathing stimulates the relaxation response, which is very important for treating addiction because anxiety is one of the major causes of drug and alcohol dependency. Another benefit of yoga is lower blood pressure and reduced heart rate.

Yoga also releases endorphins, feel-good chemicals that result heightened relaxation, reduced stress, a better mood and improved concentration. In addition to addiction treatment, other conditions that are commonly relieved by yoga include back pain, arthritis, and symptoms of asthma.
