Yoga for Veterans

On the national stage many VOA and community organizations are incorporating yoga training into programs for veterans.  The vets use yoga for relaxation and as a coping mechanism for dealing with combat-related stress issues that can lead to self-destructive behaviors and habits.

Believing that trauma lives in the body as well as the mind, Yoga on High Foundation has funded ongoing 6-week sessions of therapeutic yoga classes for homeless veterans in the Columbus, Ohio area.
