Veterans Yoga Retreat
One of our longtime supporters sent us an email this week about upcoming yoga retreats for veterans and of course we had to pass it along!
This Fall there will be two Veteran Yoga Retreats - one for men and one for women - where veterans can participate in a week long retreat featuring various workshops and yoga classes. The goal of these classes are to help veterans who struggle with PTSD to learn how to cope and live with the invisible wounds of war. These retreats are taught by certified yoga instructors and veterans themselves.
The Veteran Yoga Retreat is put on by the nonprofit organization, Omega Institute, whose mission is to provide growth to individuals and organizations through holistic approaches. Their campus is located in the Hudson Valley area of Upstate New York.
These retreats do require applications, which are linked below and do cost money. The good news is that there are scholarships available so we encourage you to explore these opportunities if you think this may be a good healing method for you!
Yoga has proven to help veterans become more mindful and present in their life. As we like to say, don't knock it until you try it! Read for yourself here just how impactful this yoga experience has been for veterans who have attended.
