Veterans Yoga Project
About Veterans Yoga Project
Veterans Yoga Project started with a training workshop delivered by a psychologist and a yoga teacher that was intended to help other yoga teachers have the skills and knowledge to effectively use yoga as a complementary part of PTS(D) treatment. As that original training has grown and evolved, so has VYP. The VYP Teachers Alliance was created for teachers who are teaching yoga to veterans as a support community that includes monthly continuing education training opportunities from subject matter experts in the field. VYP’s services have expanded from a focus on those in recovery to include those who care for those in recovery; and to those veterans who, as part of their post-traumatic growth, have decided to dedicate their time sharing these tools with other veterans.
