So you ask, what the heck is Yoga Warriors? It is an evidence
based yoga teacher training program for PTSD and the mind body connection.......healing the wounds of war, breath by breath.
No this is not an easy class/seminar......already tonight within the first hour, there were tears shed.......by Sunday, we will probably fill the ocean. We are truly a unique group, not all are yoga teachers, some are therapists, social workers, health care workers.....with a common goal......give anyone, but especially soldiers/vets and their family members the tool that has been proven in a study that will be published in Jan. 2012
of helping PTSD. What is being taught to us, can be used by anyone who has PTSD to help with the disorder...... trauma is
trauma, whether it is caused by war, violence, accident, nature.
I cannot believe I am so lucky to be here.....blessed to be here with this group, with this instructor. This is where my heart lies in yoga, and I know without a shadow of a doubt, that what I have been doing the past few years and will continue to do can help.
Apex is a beautiful sleepy southern town, but is vibrant and alive. Someone had the vision a few years ago, to renovate and restore its historical downtown district. All day folks have walked its streets, filled its shops and eateries and smiled at me a stranger from Alabama. I feel at home, welcomed and relaxed.
If any of you ever get the chance to visit, drop by.......the food is good, the town is full of charm and the local yoga studio, Yoga Garden is truly a delight.
I have homework, so this is a short post tonight.....but I am ever so grateful for my path, for those I have met today and the guidance that I am getting.......
more to come tomorrow night.
Good night Sweet dreams
