"Yoga: A Holistic Approach to Substance Use Disorder Recovery": Dawn Farm.

  community member   < less

Yoga: A Holistic Approach to Substance Use Disorder Recovery will be presented by Erin Shawgo, LLMSW, CIYT, C-IAYT; Dawn Farm Therapist. Western cultures are learning what our eastern counterparts have known for centuries: yoga promotes overall wellness and has beneficial effects for people with a variety of challenges. Yoga decreases stress hormones, increases mood-benefiting neurotransmitters, helps form new neural pathways in the brain, facilitates personal/spiritual growth, benefits physical and mental health and reaches areas of the brain that aren't reached by behavioral techniques, e.g. areas impacted by trauma. Yoga helps people in recovery cope with and reduce stress, enhance coping and self-regulation skills, manage craving, and feel better. This presentation will review the research supporting yoga as a complementary practice, discuss how yoga benefits recovering people, and provide suggestions for developing a personal yoga practice. Part of the Dawn Farm Education Series.
Michigan Heart and Vascular Institute auditorium, 5325 Elliott Drive, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education Center, Ypsilanti. Free. 734-485-8725. info@dawnfarm.org http://www.dawnfarmeducation.org [map]
