Yoga Warriors teacher training is designed to provide advanced knowledge and practical tools for yoga teachers working with combat veterans diagnosed with Combat and Operational Stress Reaction (COSR) or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The Yoga Warriors method skillfully integrates concepts from yoga therapy, traditional yoga philosophy, and psychology, with current scientific knowledge of the body and mind to promote health and well-being.

I use YW techniques in classes I teach at two of the hospitals here in the mental/behavioral health departments. Recently I had a veteran who was a former Seal. He was suffering from PTSD . He has latched onto some of the YW techniques and other yogic techniques as well....he LOVES yoga. Thank you for your program.

“The Yoga Warriors Training exceeded my highest expectation. As a yoga teacher and a long time psychotherapist, I was thrilled with what I brought back to my practices with me. This evidence-based program is practical and yet at the same time full of heart. I can see how this training will be useful to me for years to come.
