What are Yoga for Veterans Classes like?


Yoga for Veterans classes begin with a breathing practice that helps connect to the breath and tune in to what’s going on in the mind and body. Students are then led through a series of postures similar to the postures seen in the pictures on this page.  Classes end with a short rest.


How should I prepare for my first Yoga for Veterans class?


  • Wear comfortable clothing that allows for a full range of motion and be prepared to be barefoot (or wear shoes that are for indoors only if necessary).
  • Feel free to bring your own yoga mat if you have one but we do have mats to use during class.
  • Eat only a light meal in the two hours before class begins.
  • Keep an open mind as you go through the class and remember that the goal isn’t to avoid mistakes but to learn.
