What is Veterans Yoga Project?
Veterans Yoga Project is an educational and advocacy organization dedicated to improving the health and well being of military veterans. Working in partnership with veterans, active-duty military personnel, student veterans organizations, and other non-profit organizations, Veterans Yoga Project supports recovery and promotes resilience among veterans, their families, and their communities.Veterans Yoga Project is a IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
Veterans Yoga Project teaches self-regulation skills. Our Mindful Resilience/Mindful Yoga Therapy program consists of five tools: Breath, Meditation, Mindful Movement, Guided Rest, and Gratitude. These practices are adapted and delivered to maximize their ability to undo the nervous system dysfunctions that underlie symptoms of stress-related conditions.
Veterans Yoga Project creates opportunities for healing through multi-day retreats. These retreats clear the time and space necessary to release the traumatic imprints that negatively influence our lives and create new habits that are more aligned with our values and goals.
Veterans Yoga Project provides advanced training in Mindful Resilience for yoga teachers and healthcare professionals. Our training programs provide yoga teachers with the skills to safely and effectively use yoga as a complementary therapy in clinical settings.
By providing support to all veterans, whether they are currently struggling with severe symptoms, or they are focused on increasing resilience and giving back to their brothers and sisters, Veterans Yoga Project is doing its part to serve those who have served.
