Many studies show the positive benefits of Hatha Yoga and Insight Meditation for aiding recovery from addiction and building mental wellness. In fact, these practices are now offered at most treatment centers known for using progressive approaches and following best practices.
For individuals struggling with new sobriety as well as those with long-term recovery, meditation and yoga can greatly improve their physical health, mental focus and program. For those also dealing with depression, anxiety or related issues, these practices help relieve symptoms and improve overall well-being.
The Council’s yoga and meditation program is open to anyone wishing to participate in an easy-to-follow approach to a thousands-year-old practice. Limited yoga equipment and mats are available on a first-come, first-served basis, or bring your own meditation pillows and yoga mats. Health waivers must be signed before beginning participation.
There is no fee, but a donation basket will be available to help defer instructor costs.
