“When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others”  Peace Pilgrim

Taylor Recovery is proud to announce that we have included bi-weekly Yoga sessions in our already unique Sober Living program!

In addition to the wide variety of therapeutic techniques in our program that exceed any other sober living facility in Texas, we offer our residents who are in recovery the opportunity to experience the many benefits of yoga. Yoga has proven to be a successful therapeutic intervention for those who have struggled with substance use disorders.

Research has shown that the holistic approach to treating addiction and focusing on every aspect of an individual (including the mind, body, and the spirit) gives those who are working towards the goal of long-term recovery the greatest chance at success.  Yoga and meditation help recovering addicts learn to sit quietly and calm the body and mind with breath, and experience feelings of peace and comfort.

Learning different yoga postures gives addicts the skills they need in order to tolerate the uncomfortable feelings and sensations such as anxiety and stress that can lead to relapses.  On the wonderful journey of recovery, Taylor residents are experiencing yoga as an activity that empowers them with the ability to access a peaceful, restorative inner state that integrates the mind, body, and the spirit!
