Free yoga session with wounded warriors

The event aims to raise awareness of the mental health challenges the nation's service men and women face, and educate the community on the many ways veterans can heal in mind, body and spirit. Participating yogis are encouraged to stick around after the flow to mingle over lunch with their peers and organizations working to support local veterans. In conjunction with this event, donations to the Wounded Warrior Project can be submitted online here.
