Outreach Coordinator for Veterans • Anthony Scaletta • Johnstown, PA

Anthony Scaletta, Mindful Yoga Therapy facultyAnthony Scaletta joined the Mindful Yoga Therapy / Give Back Yoga tribe as Outreach Coordinator for Veterans to further his mission to serve his fellow veterans.

From 1998 to 2003, Anthony served as a US Navy Special Warfare Combatant Crewman (SWCC) with Naval Special Warfare Group 1 out of San Diego, California from 1998 to 2003.

An 11 Meter RHIB operator, Anthony did two deployments to the Northern Arabian Gulf region conducting Maritime Interdiction Operations and reconnaissance missions.

As a result of his service he was diagnosed with PTSD, Anxiety, Depression and OCD. He also suffered from chronic pain and a spinal fusion surgery. It was through these “opportunities” — which he used to call obstacles — that yoga found Anthony, and it immediately resonated with him as the way to heal and reintegrate after his military service.

Anthony’s post-military mission is to be of service by bringing the healing powers of yoga to others, especially veterans, as a way to ease their suffering and empower them toward healing. He accepts this mission honorably and with gratitude and steadfast dedication.

A graduate of the Asheville Yoga Center’s 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification program and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with the Yoga Alliance at the 200 Hour level, Anthony is also a 100-Hour Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans teacher training graduate.

Anthony truly believes yoga has saved him, and wants nothing more than to share the healing powers of yoga with other veterans as a tool for easing their suffering and empowering them to heal and reintegrate post-military service. As a combat veteran and a certified yoga teacher, he is uniquely prepared to help lead the way for the current generation of veterans.
