The efficacy of yoga and meditation practices for veterans suffering from PTSD or post-combat reintegration is now well-documented. A specially designed yoga and meditation class creates space for veterans to connect to their breath and to their bodies, and to re-train the mind to recognize and defuse psychological stress triggers before they activate.
I offer a low-cost private instruction rate for veterans and can accommodate groups of up to four in my home studio, also at a discounted private class rate. I am also available to come to your home or office, or to teach a Veterans Yoga & Meditation Class at any appropriate off-site location in the Dallas area.
