For combat veterans dealing with post-traumatic stress, yoga can make a profound difference. We’re seeing it in a growing body of clinical research, and hearing it from veterans who are reaching out to tell us that “yoga saved my life.”
At Give Back Yoga, we’re working hard to make this healing practice more accessible to those who can benefit. To date, we’ve shared free Mindful Yoga Therapy practice guides with more than 13,000 veterans and active duty service members, and have introduced Mindful Yoga Therapy programs or resources to 47 VA facilities and 50 vet centers nationwide. But our team members are continuing to lose friends and colleagues to PTSD, and we know there’s still much more to do.
