I recently did a short little video of even in 90 degree weather, how nice it is to do yoga once the sun has started to set, but still great light outdoors!

The donations you make go toward our Light a Candle Memorial Day effort for the Veterans Yoga Project.

Since the formative years of the United States, more than one million American Soldiers have given and lost their lives protecting our freedoms and defending our nation’s liberties. Those Americans made the ultimate sacrifice. Veterans Yoga Project recognizes their sacrifice by annually gathering on Memorial Day to light candles in their honor.

We stand where they once stood.
We bow to them with gratitude.
We speak of their valor.
We live.

We invite you to join with us in honoring our fallen.

Any generous gifts made in honor of Light A Candle will go directly to our efforts to aid in the recovery and resilience of our nation’s veterans, military, caregivers, families, and communities. In doing so, we will light a candle on behalf of your dedication.

Without your support, we could not do what we do.

Should you choose not to donate this Memorial Day, we still invite you to join us in honoring and remembering our fallen by lighting a candle and sharing in our candlelit meditation vigil via livestream at 3pm your local time. Livestream link –

6th Annual Light a Candle Memorial Day

On May 31st, please join us in keeping candles burning bright in remembrance and keeping alive the unbreakable stories, valor, and memory of the veterans who lost their lives as a final act of service.

Gratefully,
All of us at Veterans Yoga Project

Yoga helps with back pain

See what a Veteran has to say about the Yoga for Low Back Pain class that I teach!

One of the Veterans that regularly takes my Yoga for Low Back Pain class on the Veteran’s Yoga Project had this to say about this class that I teach.

Gail talking.
“Hey Don, welcome back! Hope this helped you! Let me know!”
Don – Veteran
“Yes it always helps! I’m similar to you: chronic back pain for 20-30 years, and since I started doing yoga in Tucson and more recently on-line, my back is much better. Not completely gone, but a heck of a lot better!”

Doesn’t get much better than that!

$10 pays me a bit, pays the Back Pack Food Ministry a bit too!

Even I, a yoga teacher struggled with back pain.
Turns out, some of the yoga poses I was doing was contributing to my back pain.

My pain levels were between a 6 – 9. I had to use a cane, and walker at some point.

I investigated in Yoga Vista’s online training for Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care.

I am a convert now. My pain levels are now anywhere’s between a 0 and level 3. For me that is significant.

So this is my niche. I teach Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care. Great for beginners, those new to yoga, and those of us with back challenges.

The yoga class is on Monday at 6 PM CST (think Texas). My hope for you is to feel better.

You might get some other benefits too! Better balance, higher quality sleep, increased flexibility & strength, building bones, better joint mobility, you might even lose weight with a regular practice.

Join me for next week’s class. IF my class time does not match with your schedule a private yoga session, or getting a weekly video for you to do in the privacy of your home might be better for you.

How to start? Pay me $10 through Paypal.
Then you’ll get the registration link for Zoom (or the video 1-2 days later).

Call me for your questions. 409-727-3177.

Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care Class with Gail – 1 hour long on Mondays – $10.

Interesting Study: New Study Adds Growing Evidence that Yoga and Meditation Can Reduce Chronic Pain. I can attest to that study, as it has helped me with my chronic back pain!

https://www.yogauonline.com/yoga-research/new-study-adds-growing-evidence-yoga-and-meditation-can-reduce-chronic-pain

The study echoes previous findings on the benefits of yoga and meditation for chronic pain published in 2016 in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association.

“The bottom line is that patients are seeking new ways to cope with chronic pain and effective non-pharmaceutical treatments are available,” says Dr. Marske. “Our findings show meditation and yoga can be a viable option for people seeking relief from chronic pain.”
