“The Military Mindset & The Yoga Mindset Aren’t That Different.”

In NYC, a group of veterans from different eras meets for a weekly yoga class at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Chelsea. With their mats, blankets, bolsters, chairs and straps, they go through the physical movements to find their breath and calm the mind. While the veterans might be from different wars, the experience of war is a common thread. Listen as they talk about their experiences, including one veteran who talks about growing up with a father who was in the Korean war who had PTSD.  Watch the video here on vimeo.

“When I teach these veterans, I know that military training is there and I use it to my advantage to teach them,” says the teacher.
