Chester has been attending YES to Vets yoga classes since 2017 but has practiced yoga since 2012.  The YES to Vets yoga classes have been important in providing structure and growth in his practice.  It was the YES to Vets yoga classes that introduced total body and mind meditation into Chester’s practice, and the class has been crucial in demonstrating how yoga poses connects to and is important in one’s daily life.

Chester has been a YES to Vets board member since early 2018.

Chester Henson currently resides in Lebanon, Indiana.
