As I mentioned before Yoga Warriors is an evidence based Yoga practice, but what does that really mean???? My friend, American Fighter Pilot and fellow Yoga Warriors Teacher Major Jon Greuel USAF, is just the person to answer that question!! Jon is actually the Principal Investigator that conducted the “Iraq Study” that is the data behind Yoga Warriors. The entire study can be found on the YW website www.yogawarriors.com Just this month the “Iraq Study” was published in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy and can be found through the following link… http://ajot.atapress.net/content/66/1/59.full
Although I am 100% Yogi, believing is connections and that our spirit/soul guides us, I am also a text book person as well and enjoy science. It is the science aspect of Yoga Warriors that I think is key to this program and related to it’s success!!!!! Recently Jon and I have been communicating almost daily especially with the huge progress with YW in Canada. In one letter Jon writes that he loves my enthusiasm and that I rock!!!! However I think Jon is pretty amazing being overseas on deployment and conducting Yoga Warriors classes in the middle east!!!! Not to mention his endless efforts with the “Iraq Study” !!! Jon, you are the one that ROCKS!!! Thank-you for your service to your country fighting for freedom but also your dedication and service to Yoga Warriors!!
PS: I think it is really exciting when people from different countries can bond together and create something really special!! Being the soul Canadian in this group, YW has really taken me in with open arms.
Lots of hugs
