Veterans Gratitude Yoga Class with Julia Harrer @ Inner Balance Studio
Nov 9 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Patterson, NY- November 9, 2016 – Inner Balance Studio and Yoga in the Trees are partnering with Veterans Yoga Project as part of a national weeklong fundraising and awareness-raising event.  In 2015, the groundswell of support reached 400 classes and events across 39 states, attended by thousands of veterans and civilians alike, raising awareness and much needed funds to continue to provide therapeutic resources to Veterans and their families.  In 2016, join yoga teachers from across the country who will be hosting donation-based classes during the week of Veterans Day, Nov 4-13 to raise money for programs that support our veterans, families, and communities in all 50 states. Inner Balance will be hosting a Veterans Yoga Class Wednesday, November 9th, 2016, from 12:30-1:30 with a suggested donation of $5.00 and all proceeds will be donated to The Veterans Yoga Project.

The Veterans Yoga Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity on a mission to supporting the mindful use of yoga therapy to aid recovery and resilience among veterans, their families and their communities.  “I’ve been doing this for a while, and in my experience nothing helps veterans with recovery and resilience more effectively than yoga and mindfulness practice.  The transformations that we’ve helped support are nothing less than miraculous.  I’ve seen veterans turn resentment and anger into connection and acceptance, insomnia into deep restful sleep, physical debilitating pain into easy, pain-free movement”, said Dr. Daniel Libby, Executive Director of the Veterans Yoga Project.

Nearly 3 million men and women have served in the military since Sept 11, 2001.  Approximately half of these service members are dealing with posttraumatic stress, chronic pain, depression and/or anxiety.  In addition there are approximately 12 million living veterans from previous conflicts also still in the process of recovery from the wounds of war.  By providing yoga teacher training programs, practice resources for veterans, and healing retreats, Veterans Yoga Project has supported the recovery and resilience-building process of thousands of military veterans and their family members.  Please consider supporting this good work.

Inner Balance Studio and Yoga in the Trees are proud supporters of the Veterans Yoga Project. We are proud of our community’s involvement with this National Week of Veterans Awareness.  We are expecting a welcoming and large class.  If you can’t make it to the class, please go on-line to:  and make a donation.  Every penny counts towards supporting our Veterans and honoring them for all of their sacrifices for our freedoms.
