Warriors for Healing is devoted to bringing Yoga science to veterans suffering as a result of experiencing traumatic events in their lives. Yoga is a time-tested, transformational science that is profoundly relevant for our modern times.
Revenues go towards providing free trauma therapy for PTSD in VA Hospitals, Yoga Studios, Community Centers and other venues nationwide. Through our partners, Give Back Yoga Foundation and Connected Warriors Foundation, we provide trainings, tools and materials for Yoga Teachers and veterans.
Our premier event will be at the 2015 Yoga Journal Live San Diego Conference, and be live-streamed across the country.
Proceeds raised by your efforts go directly to support programs produced by Give Back Yoga Foundation (such as Yoga for First Responders) 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.

- 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)
