"YES to Vets"
Yoga Education and Service to Veterans
We provide on-going yoga classes in the community
at no charge for our veterans and their families.
We've chosen powerful, evidence-based yoga practices,
and we adapt all the practices
to best suit each veteran
and the unique challenges they face.
Benjamin Harrison YMCA Saturdays 11:15 am. - 12:45 pm.
This is a more physically challenging class than our two current classes. We'll do all the same powerful inner practices like the breathing, eye focus, internal energy gateways and present moment awareness... as well as poses like triangle, planks and down dog. We sit on the floor rather than use chairs. Taught by Alli Steinke. We're having a wonderful time, please join us! New to yoga - OK!
In our 2010 VA-funded research study for veterans
with stroke injuries, all of our participants said
they would recommend yoga to family and friends.
Yoga is a non-invasive,
