Yoga calms the nervous system and relaxes your muscles and mental synapses even when your addictive nature is triggered. There are many yoga poses and pranayama exercises that can be practiced at any time to calm the mind and remain focused on changing our behavior from addictive habits towards recovery.
When you seek help for addiction, many treatment facilities and providers now use yoga as a treatment method, or supplement to outpatient and inpatient treatment. Beginning a yoga practice has helped many people face their addiction, prevent relapse, reduce withdrawal symptoms, and relieve stress from potential addiction triggers.
