Executive Director Rob Schware talks to Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans faculty member Pamela Stokes Eggleston for The Huffington Post Blog, learning how yoga providers can offer special support to the spouses and caregivers of veterans.
“As the spouse of an OIF wounded veteran dealing with post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury, I know what it’s like to live with these challenges, day in and day out. And as his caregiver, I know that many caregivers of veterans and military service members neglect their own care. When a military caregiver or veteran comes into one of my classes, I immediately connect with them on a deeper supportive level. I’ve been there, and I get it.”
