About Our Yoga Treatment
Yoga is a very popular healing modality for both mind and body. Oasis holds several yoga classes each week for clients, facilitated by our highly-trained, trauma-informed yoga therapist.
Yoga at Oasis is gentle and nurturing. Above all, each individual is encouraged to participate at their own pace. Letting our clients experience new and improved methods of healing and not putting ourselves in the one-size-fits-all category of treatment centers is what we are all about.
Yoga and Addiction Treatment
Yoga is a mindfulness activity, helping individuals navigate through stressful situations such as addiction treatment. Learning how to manage stress, anxiety, depression, and much more through an extremely healthy practice such as yoga can have a profound impact on our client’s lives.
Yoga is increasingly being used in substance abuse treatment programs and throughout recovery to help prevent relapse, reduce withdrawal symptoms, reduce drug cravings, and provide a healthy outlet to cope with potential triggers and daily life stressors.
