Integrate yoga and meditation into military and civilian settings to support the health, resiliency, post-traumatic growth, and connection of service members, veterans, and their families.
WHY WE DO IT
Yoga and meditation are often “prescribed” in a generalized sense to enhance the wellbeing of those who practice. While some of these modalities activate the parasympathetic nervous system (rest-and-digest), others activate the sympathetic nervous system (fight-or-flight). If these practices are not facilitated by an expertly trained and certified instructor (service provider), the health, resilience, and connection of participants can be compromised. Warriors at Ease training and certification programs provide the necessary knowledge and skills to facilitate these practices in a way that is safe, relevant, and effective for the military community.
HOW WE’RE DIFFERENT
What makes Warriors at Ease different among the hundreds of yoga and meditation organizations dedicated to serving the military population? Warriors at Ease knows the long-term sustainability of access to these powerful tools lies with the service providers, our teachers. Ensuring that our Teacher Network always has the safest, most effective, and relevant educational training and a community they can turn to for support is essential. Warriors at Ease will forever remain dedicated to creating, growing, and sustaining the WAE Teacher Network as they continue to put boots on the ground serving those who serve.
