Yoga For Trauma Survivors

Warriors for Healing is a training and certification program that offers yoga to service members and veterans suffering from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). This class is based on that program and is free to veterans, first responders and to anyone who has experienced trauma and who is or has suffered from PTSD. This program is designed to help survivors of trauma reestablish a healthy mind/body connection. Breath practices and physical postures will help survivors manage stress and reduce dis-ease in the body.  This class will be a beginner level class, taught by a trained certified yoga instructor in a safe and confidential environment.  No reservations required.  Wear comfortable clothes, we have mats available at the studio, and family members are welcome to attend.

Not your stereotypical Yogi. People are often surprised when they find out that I practice Yoga. Born and raised in Key Largo and Miami. Played every organized sport I could in High School. Continued that trend playing College Football and Lacrosse at The Carnegie Mellon University while obtaining a BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I was the typical Fraternity/Football/Beer/Party College Kid. Came home to work with the family after graduating. Not loving the cold of Pittsburgh may have had a small part of that decision.

In 2013, I sought out Yoga to releive stress, and have been hooked ever since. I practice a little of everything including, but not limited to, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hatha, Gentle, Restorative, Aerial, and SUP. I completed my 200 hr YTT in 2015 at Key Largo Yoga under the guidance of Kathy Shirley.
