Mindful Yoga Therapy Inspired Class in Honor of Veterans Day
A donation based class for every-body
Free for all Veterans and their families.
Saturday, November 9, 11 to 1 pm.
Graciously taught by Lauri Deary and supported by Team Heartsong!
No matter which era a solder served: Korea, Vietnam, The Gulf War, Iraq, Afghanistan...All Veterans and their families are welcome.
All donations support the work of Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans, whose mission is "Helping veterans to find a calm and steady body/mind to continue productive and peaceful lives through the support of the physical and mindful practices of yoga."
Heartsong's director Sheila Magalhaes is on their faculty, and many of Heartsong's teachers have been trained through this program. Over the past year, Mindful Yoga Therapy has distributed over 10,000 free MYT toolkits to veterans, helping them find peace of mind and relief from the symptoms of post traumatic stress. This has been done through the help of the Give Back Yoga Foundation, and their goal is to share free yoga and mindfulness training guides with 30,000 veterans by 2015...we need your help! Our work is vital because every day, about 22 returning Veterans take their own lives. That's a low estimate...to be clear...today at least 22 FAMILIES lost a love one who had returned to them after serving our country in combat. Did you know that 25% of all homeless are Combat Veterans? And over 200 Veterans are disabled every day! Help us to turn those numbers around, and to honor those who have made incredible sacrifices. All donations gratefully accepted. Drop ins welcome, to this All Levels class.
