Working with heroes

Sunday, Suzanne Manafort appears in the Hartford Courant as a Hometown Hero.

Suzanne started working with veterans eight years ago. Words like “hero” have no place in the vocabulary she uses to describe herself. So for this recognition, she offers most humble thanks, and asks that people consider learning more about Mindful Yoga Therapy, the program she co-developed.

Mindful Yoga Therapy…for heroes

With an emphasis on strength, resilience and acceptance, Mindful Yoga Therapy was designed to help veterans–the true heroes–move forward toward recovery. The nonprofit’s mission is helping veterans to find a calm and steady body/mind to continue productive and peaceful lives through the support of the mindful practices of yoga and education.

By both training yoga teachers, and teaching Mindful Yoga Therapy in therapeutic treatment settings, Suzanne aims to bring Mindful Yoga Therapy to the widest possible audience.

Find more information on the Mindful Yoga Therapy website, where you’ll find a more detailed description of the programs and the populations they were designed to serve.
