"YES to Vets"

 Yoga Education and Service to Veterans

YES to Vets

We provide on-going yoga classes in the community
at no charge for our veterans and their families.

We've chosen the most powerful evidence-based yoga practices
to improve the brain and nervous system -
the foundation of health on all levels of humanness,
and we adapt all the practices
 to best suit each veteran
and the unique challenges faced.

 
The yoga helped me more than anything else
I’ve done.
— Mel S., yoga research participant

In our 2010 VA-funded research study for veterans
with stroke injuries, all of our participants said
they would recommend yoga to family and friends.

 

Yoga is a non-invasive,
non-pharmacologic solution
to many of the challenges our veterans face

Yoga may be more therapeutic than traditional exercise
because the combination of postures, breathing and meditation
may produce different effects than simple exercise, researchers said.
