Lawrenceville, NJ – Nov 9th, 2021 – In an effort to bring families together and celebrate this year’s Veteran’s Day, Honor Yoga Foundation is offering free livestream classes as well as in-person classes at the Warren, NJ Honor Yoga studio. Honor Yoga Foundation celebrates Veterans, Active Duty and their family members through Connected Warriors. Connected Warriors is the largest community-based volunteer organization providing trauma-conscious yoga therapy for service members, veterans and their families in the United States.
This 60-minute Inner Strength class is their “core” Connected Warriors class. It involves learning postures, meditation, and pranayama (breathing) while emphasizing the mind-body connection. Participants of their classes learn how to handle stressful situations in a more relaxed manner by quieting and focusing their mind. Participants generally feel benefits in the following areas:
• Sleep longer and more deeply
• Mental and physical health intervention, management of PTS and TBI symptoms
• A non-pharmaceutical method to manage symptoms and relieve stress
• Improvement in self-confidence, self-worth, enhanced ease and equanimity in daily life
Tracy Hill, the Connected Warriors chair at the Honor Yoga Foundation, said “The program’s primary goal is to provide a safe and secure environment with a focus on re-establishing the mind-body connection and guiding our warriors and families to healthier and more peaceful lives. We are hopeful that those who have been affected by past traumas can learn techniques to relax the mind and body and reduce stress. The classes were extended to family members to create an enjoyable experience where they can bond and practice together through yoga postures, breathing and meditation.”
The livestream class will be held on Saturday, November 20th at 10am EST. Register at the following link: https://honoryoga.org/apps/mindbody/classes/316.
