The premise behind Warrior Spirit Project is that a broken spirit can be more harmful than a broken body. We take a holistic, evidence-based approach to help veterans and first responders transform traumatic experiences into personal health and well-being. As a specially-trained registered yoga teacher, I use a trauma-sensitive approach to yoga and meditation that focuses on somatosensory awareness and activation of the parasympathetic nervous system (turning "fight, flight, or freeze" to the OFF position). I have the utmost respect for the unique past and present experiences of each student and aim to provide each of them with the ability to move forward in confidence and with a new sense of ease.
