Help us to bring Yoga For Warriors to those who serve.

The Give Back Yoga Foundation is honored to support the health and wellbeing of those who serve our country by distributing free copies of Yoga For Warriors: Basic Training in Strength, Resilience and Peace of Mind to veterans and active duty service members.

Written by our co-founder Beryl Bender Birch and published through Sounds True, this book serves as a gift to all the men and women in our armed services, offering veterans a resource to help navigate the transition home after combat. In an easy and approachable way, Yoga For Warriors leads students through thoughtful and anatomically wise movement (asana) that can be done by anyone of any size, age or ability. The book also offers supportive techniques such as pranayama (breath work), mindfulness meditation and a deep relaxation practice called yoga nidra that can help practitioners to relax the stress response, sharpen their mental acuity, and find a general sense of health and well-being. Beautifully illustrated with photos of veterans who have discovered balance and connection through their own personal yoga practice, Yoga For Warriors represents and invites a diverse spectrum of students of all ages, sizes and backgrounds to explore this ancient tool for inner awareness and wellbeing.
