It has only been six months since Yoga Warriors was launched in Canada and for a Yoga program it is gaining more interest and steam everyday!! Last Thursday’s YW class for example I just loved! The energy was awesome the Soldiers always so kind, polite and always interested to hear what is happening next with YW!
When I am walking around the room it is evident the happiness and peace this program has brought. One Soldier told me that it is my magic but really I am just the guide…it is their magic and openness that makes the class! Last week one of the Soldiers approached me after class and offer to help/volunteer with any Yoga Warriors events…. it is his way of saying THANK-YOU for my efforts and when he said that I was really moved by that gesture. It is moments like this when I think this journey has become a movement for so many!! Even to hear the words “what can I do or how can I help” mean so much! There is a core group of 3-4 Soldiers that usually attend my classes twice a week and they are really something special!! They have mentioned to me that Yoga has helped them release a lot of their stress as they embark on their military careers. This was one of my goals when I first started Yoga Warriors to bring this program to the new generation of Soldiers so perhaps when they are deployed the road home won’t be so rocky. Why not have preventative measures…why wait for an entire career of stressful and signifiant events to happen and then seek help. Why not learns the tools before deployments and just breath!! This was my vision of bridging Yoga and the Military….it really makes a perfect marriage!!
Thank-you and Namaste guys!!!
