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.
