The Veterans that I teach regularly on Wednesdays on the Mindbody app, through the Veterans Yoga Project had this to say about the Beginners Back Yoga class that I teach.

“My pain levels were at the top at level 10. After class, my pain levels were at a level 6, which is so much easier for me to handle. Thank you.”

Another Veteran shared this, “I came into the class at a level of 6. Near the end of the class, I could feel the easing of pain and I’d say I was at a level of 2. I will be repeating this class!”

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.

Gratefully,
All of us at Veterans Yoga Project
