Yoga therapy

The term "yoga" refers to a broad range of breathing techniques, strengthening exercises, postures, and meditation techniques that can be traced back to ancient India. Yoga therapy aims to restore our inner equilibrium between mind, body, and spirit. Yoga, according to research, can improve our attention, reduce stress, reduce muscle tension, and limit inflammation, among other health benefits.

Yoga therapy, when combined with complementary therapies such as mindfulness, can also increase our emotional awareness. Yoga, for example, requires inward-thinking, which promotes self-confidence and an improved ability to resist the urge to abuse one's body with drugs and alcohol. Negative emotions such as shame, guilt, anger, and hostility are released as practitioners become more centered. Yoga practitioners frequently become more compassionate toward themselves and, as a result, toward others.

Yoga, despite the time and effort required, improves overall physical and mental health, aiding in the prevention of the negative physical and emotional consequences of long-term drug and alcohol use. It has the ability to restore balance, inner peace, and overall well-being that may have been lacking for many years.

Yoga therapy in addiction and mental health recovery

While Paracelsus Recovery is not a standalone luxury private yoga therapy facility, our private yoga therapy sessions are an important part of our larger, all-encompassing program.

We understand the value of specialized yoga therapy for addiction and mental health recovery, and our yoga therapists collaborate closely with the clinical team to ensure that our clients receive the most integrated and tailored treatment program possible.

Our yoga therapists are highly trained and enthusiastic teachers who will tailor each session to your specific needs and skill level.


At Paracelsus Recovery, we tailor each treatment program to your specific needs, so the frequency with which you practice yoga will depend on your symptoms, condition, and lifestyle. However, in general, we recommend practicing at least two to three times per week.

Yoga therapy has been shown in studies to help with depression symptoms. Deep breathing exercises, postures, and a mind-body emphasis, in particular, can help relieve symptoms of depression such as pain, fatigue, sleep problems, and stress.

Yoga is an excellent complementary therapy for anxiety treatment because it can alleviate the physical discomfort that anxiety causes. Yoga, because it promotes relaxation, has been shown in studies to reduce the intensity of stress responses. In other words, it has the potential to alleviate the fear and stress caused by excessive rumination and worrying.

Yoga is not a religion in and of itself, but this ancient practice can have a spiritual impact on a person. Yoga emphasizes the importance of regular meditation because it can help increase positive thoughts, decrease negativity, and strengthen our mind-body-spirit connection.

Substances are frequently used to cope with acute trauma, depression, anxiety, or the stresses of everyday life. Yoga, when combined with therapy and other forms of treatment, can help people break the cycle of addiction and provide both immediate and long-term benefits.
