Yoga has been a transformational practice for me. I have found much healing physically, mentally, and emotionally through not only the physical part of the practice, but the more subtle aspects as well. Along my healing journey I began to teach and this has become my passion.
I began training with Bhava Ram over two years ago and I’m excited to be a part of his project, Warriors for Healing, which is designed to offer healing for veterans suffering from PTSD through the practice and philosophy of Yoga.
On June 28th, 2015 at 1:00 pm this movement will go national - live streamed from coast to coast - when over 600 Yogis, service groups, spiritual centers, veterans and military supporters join together on the idyllic Windsor Lawn of the historic Hotel del Coronado overlooking the Pacific Ocean in a 90-minute Warriors for Healing Yoga Celebration of Service led by Bhava Ram, with music by Steve Gold and special guest performers.
All proceeds raised by your efforts go directly to support programs produced by Give Back Yoga Foundation and Connected Warriors, both national foundations providing Yoga science and other healing services to our veterans and those suffering from PTSD.
For every $100 raised we can provide one veteran the following package:
~ A thorough Mindful Yoga Therapy For Veterans Practice Guide with detailed explanations of yoga therapy, how yoga helps deal with PTSD, series of yoga postures with photos and illustrations, techniques for mindful breathing, meditation and affirmations, plus audio CDs for breath work and deep meditation. (Provided by Give Back Yoga Foundation)
~ Access to a list of complimentary yoga class for veterans in various states across the country. (Provided by Connected Warriors Foundation / availability subject to geographic location).
~ A PDF version of the highly acclaimed memoir Warrior Pose, How Yoga Literally Saved My Life, by former netwroks news war correspondent and W4H founder Bhava Ram. (provided by the Warriors for Healing Foundation)
Please join me in this healing mission by contributing financial support. Any amount is welcome.
