Black Tie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
At Serenity Falls we made the decision to provide free Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes to our residents. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is good for women in sober living for several reasons:
Empowerment: BJJ is a self-defense system that teaches women how to defend themselves physically, giving them a sense of security and increasing their confidence. By learning BJJ, women in sober living can develop the skills and confidence to handle themselves in difficult or potentially dangerous situations, which can help to reduce feelings of anxiety and vulnerability.
Exercise: BJJ is a full-body workout that provides physical exercise and improves strength, flexibility, and overall fitness. Physical activity has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health, and can be especially beneficial for people in sober living who may be struggling with addiction-related health issues.
Stress relief: BJJ can be a great way to release stress and anxiety. Physical activity is known to improve mood, and the focused, present-moment nature of BJJ can help to reduce stress and anxiety levels. Additionally, BJJ training can be a positive outlet for frustration and anger, which can be particularly beneficial for women in sober living who may be dealing with triggers or difficult emotions related to their sobriety.
Sobriety support: Training in BJJ provides an opportunity to connect with a supportive community, which can be especially beneficial for women in sober living who may be struggling with social isolation. By training with others who share a common goal, women in sober living can build positive relationships and support systems, which can help to reinforce their sobriety.
Mindfulness: BJJ requires focus and presence in the moment, helping to improve mental clarity and focus. This type of mindfulness practice can be especially beneficial for people in sober living who may be struggling with addiction-related mental health issues, as it can help to improve their ability to regulate their emotions and reduce stress and anxiety.
These are some of the reasons why Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be a valuable tool for women in sober living, helping to support their physical, mental, and emotional well-being as they work to maintain their sobriety.
