What is Yoga?
Yoga is a mind and body practice that has been around for thousands of years. Originating in India, yoga has seen great popularity in the United States in recent decades. The practice involves movement, meditation and breathing techniques which aid in improving your overall health and well-being. A regular yoga practice can aid in your flexibility, strength, and overall sense of peace and relaxation.
How Can Yoga Classes Impact My Recovery?
Used in combination with other therapies, and even when practiced on its own, yoga can be effective in helping with your recovery. The concept of yoga is to connect your mind, body and spirit through movement, through breathing and through awareness. As you practice, you become more centered with yourself. While participating in yoga classes in Chicago at CRC, you are part of an environment where you are supported and encouraged to simply be where you are at. With that experience of acceptance and growth, you gain a tool that you can use throughout your recovery and throughout your life: the ability to feel grounded or even, more simply, the tool to slow down and breathe.
