Part of my outreach to the community is to teach various themed classes that benefit various non-profits. In the past we’ve done food drives for the United Boards of Missions, T-shirt collections for making t-shirt diapers for Haiti, and a Yoga for Food drive for filling up local food pantries. Teaching classes, collecting money for this effort really resonated with me, and my church was fully supporting doing this.
So every year since then I’ve taught classes during Veterans Gratitude Week, and more recently did a fundraiser class for an In Memory – Light a Candle – during Memorial Day. Part of the funds help Veterans attend retreats, and provide scholarships toward becoming a yoga teacher themselves.
Last year, I got a call to come up to the local VA and do some chair yoga classes for them. I figured then it was about time to get trained in the protocol of the Veterans Yoga Project.
I love the 5 tools of mindful resistance, and find myself regularly incorporating the principles in that methodology in my regular chair yoga and beginners yoga classes.
Now that COVID-19 is upon us, all the classes throughout the nation for Veterans and their families have to take on a different view.
The leadership in the Veterans Yoga Project, asked all of us MRT – Mindful Resistance Trained Yoga teachers to step up and volunteer their time to provide daily content for offering Online Streaming Classes on either Facebook or Online Zoom platforms.
I volunteered to teach Adaptive Yoga, done seated on the chair, with strengthening and balance work done behind the chair (or seated). Go check out Veterans Yoga Project Online Streaming Classes facebook page,for their extensive offerings of yoga classes for the Veterans, families and our communities (I think that covers about everyone).
I’m teaching today at 5 PM Central, Adaptive Flow, so pop on over about that time to see the class! Here’s the schedule for today.

Wow, it has been 20 years now, since I’ve been re-introduced to yoga. Through my friend Tammy, who said, “Go check out this guy, Steve Ross on the Oxygen channel. He has some really interesting yoga class with some great music.” I did, and wow, super loved his class content, humor, music and sweet meditation at the end. Back in the day, I videotaped his show on my little VHS tapes, as it was on at 5 am, sometimes 6 am in the morning!
I started to write down the music he used, and started buying my music from itunes, and putting them into playlists. So soon after that, I became a yoga teacher, and I’d haul out a couple of times a year my Steve Ross Inhale Playlist.
My Original message on this…”
Looks like Inhale Yoga has been temporarily taken off the Oxygen channel. Last time this happened, it took a year and a half for Oxygen to get all the music rights to get the program back on Oxygen. And when that happened, it seemed to be that not all the Inhale Yoga programs came back on….only about two-thirds of the originals came back. It is my understanding that there were 33 programs done back in 2000/2001/2002.
So I had been introduced to Steve Ross, of the Inhale Oxygen show back in the early 2000 by one of my friends. I was thinking, oh, this is hard (for me)! I really liked the music, and wanted to make my own music list from the music off of the show. At one point in time, the song titles and artist’s names were listed at the bottom of the screen during the Inhale Show. I taped the shows a lot at that time, and created my list of music from the show.
Steve Ross played guitar for Fleetwood Mac back in the day, and also for the Australian band, “Men at Work”. Lots of good guitar licks in this music playlist. If you know of others to add to this list, please post a comment!
