Veterans Yoga in Richland County was founded by Dale Warren as a way to support veterans and their families. Area teachers take turns leading free, ongoing weekly classes each Saturday for veterans, active military, and their family members. My specific class dates are listed above.
Yoga for Veterans ~ Mindful Movement for Resiliency classes will focus on mindful breathing and moving, the relationship between the body and mind, and the ways in which a regular yoga practice can help relieve stress and uncover a sense of balance and ease in daily life, as well as in particularly stressful circumstances.
We will explore various breathing practices, gentle movement and postures, deep relaxation, and gratitude meditation. All are encouraged to move at their own pace, take breaks, and ask questions. A variety of yoga props and supports are available, as well as chairs for those who would benefit from a seated practice. Yoga for Veterans Mindful Movement for Resiliency offers students the space and time to explore, remain curious, challenge themselves, be gentle with themselves, and ask for and receive support. This class is open to active military, veterans, and family members.
