I would like to offer yoga services to active duty military and Veterans in the San Diego area. I am a board certified dance/movement therapist and registered yoga instructor. I currently teach yoga and meditation to active duty military in a residential substance abuse program. I find that many of these individuals come to treatment with resistance and preconceived notions about yoga. The majority of them leave treatment loving yoga and wanting to continue practicing after they leave. I believe that a yoga class just for military and Veterans might ease some of the fear and uncertainty about practicing yoga in the civilian world.
If there is interest in this area, please feel free to respond to this blog or contact me individually. I look forward to hearing from you!
The Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs are utilizing the creative arts therapies on an increasingly regular basis to aid troops and Veterans on the road to recovery and healing. See this recent article published by the DOD.
