Executive Director Rob Schware talks with Paul Zipes for The Huffington Post Blog about the work done through Yoga For Vets, an organization that connects veterans with locations across the country that offer four or more free yoga classes to combat veterans.
“Unfortunately, some problems vets encounter after returning from war haven’t changed yet. I still read reports about over-medicated combat vets, suicides among active duty and reserve soldiers, and misunderstood vets. …I started Yoga For Vets to send a clear message to our combat vets – “Welcome Home” – and to make sure they know that the yoga community cares.”
– Military veteran Paul Zipes, founder of Yoga For Vets
