Spiritually Fit offers specialized restorative and relaxing yoga classes tailored to those going through a medically supervised drug or alcohol detox. We teach sequences of poses that help with pain, stiffness, and anxiety. We gently guide clients through sequences of postures that aid in releasing toxins from the body fat, muscle, and internal organs. Simple reclined postures stretch the legs and help to ease symptoms associated with restless leg syndrome, an acute withdrawal symptom common in opiate detox. Easy twists and compression postures apply slight pressure to internal organs such as the liver, kidneys, GI and lymphatic system to help flush toxins out of the body. All of this helps the client feel better quicker.
In addition, we guide clients through extended meditation sessions using breath and body awareness to help them let go, calm down, and relax. Meditation brings peace and calm which helps relieve common symptoms of withdrawal, including anxiety, stress, and sleeplessness.
Not only do we guide clients through the meditation, but we teach them the strategies to do it on their own. This allows them to face the inevitable challenging moments in life with a sense of calm and clarity to give them new perspective on big decisions. For these reasons, meditation can be a life saving relapse prevention tool.
