Our mission is to increase awareness about the power of yoga and meditation and educate a network of professionals qualified to share evidenced-based practices through programs that support the health and healing of service members, veterans and their families.
Our vision is to 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.
By training a network of teachers to provide trauma-sensitive, evidence-based practices in a military culture-informed way, we’re able to meet members of the military community where they are, and support them on their path of wellness. Training yoga and meditation teachers in the Warriors at Ease method allows them to empower members of the military community to take charge of their own healing. We’ve found that once members of the military become students, they’ll eventually want to become teachers. We’re closing the loop of support and creating opportunities for members of the military community to support their fellow brothers and sisters in arms, using practices that will benefit them for a lifetime.
