A Donation Based Event for Mindful Yoga Therapy
Come and join the celebration. Participate in some or all of the salutations, or just sit and breathe with us
The practice of Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskaras) honors the change of seasons and the transitions of nature’s sun and earth energy. These Surya Namaskaras also help remove toxins in the body as spring arrives and we cleanse. Surya namaskar means “obeisance to the sun” . We honor the significance of the sun, the light of the world and our primary source of energy.
Friday: 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Saturday: 12 pm – 7 p.m.
Sunday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Mindful Yoga Therapy is an empirically informed, clinically tested program comprised of five practices: Pranayama (breathing), Asana (postures connected with breath), Yoga Nidra, Meditation, and Gratitude. Each practice is a tool Veterans can use to cope with Post Traumatic Stress, and together, they form a comprehensive system–a toolbox–that will carry Veterans into a life of strength and resilience.
The 100 Hour Mindful Yoga Therapy program consists of five modules, presented over five weekends. It includes our Beginning Mindful Yoga Therapy Program and our new Resilience Program. The 12-week Resilience Program is the follow-up to the Beginning Mindful Yoga Therapy Program. Both programs include a 12-week protocol that includes Embodyoga® supports and all five “Tools” from the “Tool Box”.
Yoga practices are a powerful complement to professional treatment for Post Traumatic Stress. A mindful, embodied yoga practice can provide relief from symptoms and develop the supportive skills that Veterans need in their everyday lives. Yoga has proven to aid in a Veteran’s healing journey.

EMBODIED-INQUIRY™ is an intimate exploration of all layers of our form and consciousness, through the body’s systems to the cellular, sub-cellular and pranic levels. We weave Embodied-Inquiry™ into our asana, pranayama, and meditation practices. It softens our thinking mind and encourages us to move more deeply into sensing, feeling, and directly experiencing our essential selves. Guided by discriminative mind and profound self-acceptance, fueled by curiosity and desire for greater depth, Embodied-Inquiry™ is playful and absorbing.
