Join us for a donation based class to benefit the Veterans Yoga Project. The Veterans Yoga Project is an educational and advocacy organization dedicated to improving the health and well-being of military veterans. The suggested donation for this class is $30.
Overwhelming traumatic experiences lead to semi-permanent changes in nervous system functioning. After a traumatic experience, the nervous system often gets ‘stuck’ in emergency response mode, responding to current circumstances in the context of the traumatic circumstances. The changes in the nervous system functioning cause symptoms of post-traumatic stress (PTS). The symptoms of PTS lead to problems navigating everyday situations. Veterans Yoga Project teaches self-regulation skills. The Mindful Resilience program consists of five tools: Breath, Meditation, Mindful Movement, Guided Rest, & Gratitude. Veterans within a program are encouraged to find out which of these tools supports them. We all need to take time to turn our attention inward and practice developing strength, stability, and flexibility in mind, body, & spirit. For those recovering from PTS, these practices can undo the nervous system dysfunction that underlie symptoms.
