Veterans Yoga Project
Mindful Resilience Yoga-Online Streaming
Veterans Yoga Project (VYP) is dedicated to supporting recovery and resilience among veterans, active duty military members, families, and communities. VYP logs 1,500 veteran visits each month at their Mindful Resilience yoga classes, in partnership with 18 VA hospitals, 17 Vet Centers, and more than a dozen community-based veteran service organizations across the United States. VYP began the Mindful Resilience Yoga-Online Streaming in March 2020, to stream daily content including yoga, breathing, and mindfulness sessions. These classes offer safety, predictability, and support for trauma recovery and utilize the tools of breathing, gratitude, mindful movement, mediation, and guided rest to address pain and distress. This NFL-BWF Healthy Lifestyle and Creating Community (HLCC) grant will fund Veterans Yoga Project yoga teachers to provide online programming for free to at least 3,200 veterans, active duty military members, families, and the communities across the United States.
