A Holistic Recovery Center Houston Trusts


When recovering from the effects that drugs and alcohol have on the body, exercise may be the last thing we want to do. However, at Serenity Light Recovery, we understand that a holistic treatment approach, centered around health and wellness, can play an integral part in our efforts to stay sober. Studies have shown that adding an exercise regimen to addiction treatment can reinforce the recovery process. We strive to be the holistic recovery center Houston residents turn to in order to beat addiction.

In early recovery, the body and mind crave the endorphins and dopamine that the body naturally produces to replace the depleted chemicals in the brain, as a result of addiction. Clients will experience the uplifting effects that exercise provides to recharge the body’s needs. Because we believe in healing the mind, body, and spirit, we have a certified personal trainer and Yoga instructor on staff to lead our clients in Recovery Fitness.



What Are The Benefits of Holistic Therapy?

Holistic therapy focuses on healing your entire person. However, you may be wondering what the benefits of holistic therapy could be. Fortunately, we have the answer.s

One advantage of a holistic treatment is that it brings you relief. Withdrawing from drugs and alcohol can be a somewhat painful process. However, when you engage in yoga or massage therapy, you don’t focus as much on your discomfort. Instead, you’re focusing on how each movement affects your body. Therefore, your symptoms may ease or go away completely. 

Another advantage of holistic therapy is that you gain skills and hobbies that you can use outside of treatment. Learning how to practice yoga or engage in an exercise routine can assist in your recovery throughout your journey. There is no age limit, and these skills can distract you from cravings. 

Additionally, holistic therapy improves your general health. Yoga, massage, and meditation can relieve aches and pains. Exercise keeps you in shape, which also can keep you from returning to your addiction.

A final advantage benefits your energy levels. Some drugs take away your energy and make you feel mellow. Others give you a frenetic energy that eventually goes away. However, exercising and doing yoga provide you with energy that is healthy and lasting.

Symbiosis Always


Our Yoga program is very eclectic, and we teach a combination of different types of yoga. From restorative yoga to energizing flow yoga. We have also created several healing and self-empowering sequences. Yoga is a vital tool for anyone to have as it links each movement to your breath leading you to self-discovery and peace.

Studies have shown a healthy yoga practice can suppress addictive behaviors and replace them with healthy habits while restoring the brain’s dopamine functions to healthier levels.

Also, yoga can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. The health benefits of yoga include increased cardio, circulatory health, and improved respiration. These can help balance out the ill effects you may have suffered during your drug use. Moreover, because there is no equipment needed, this is a practice that you continue outside of rehab.

Personal Training Sessions at a Holistic Recovery Center

Each individual will have the opportunity to sign up for 30-minute motivational individual training sessions throughout their stay in treatment. These sessions are focused on goal setting and individual evaluations to create a way to achieve realistic goals, and to put them into action with the guidance and support of their trainer.

Our certified personal trainer strives to teach the importance of trust, accountability, positive self, and peer motivation. You develop a healthy daily routine and creative problem-solving. Also, you gain fresh new perspectives on health and nutrition. You will also learn how to use proper exercise form and technique, along with stable, consistent, and non-judgmental support. This can help you maintain your health after rehab.
