The tools and awarenesss cultivated with this practice can be utilized in relapse prevention. Some of the major trigger to and signs of release are: a steady practice of guided yoga can bring a heightened awareness of these feelings, thoughts and sensations as they begin to develop: allowing the recovering addict to take steps to avoid it. Both utilizing the skills learned in a yoga practice, the discernments from the yoga philosophy and the practical tools from 12 Step recovery programs a path to health becomes the preferred choice. This is a subject that is coming more and more well known and there are organizations and foundations that are currently gathering evidence to support brining yoga into recovery situations.
