Female Warriors Strengthened Through Vinyasa Yoga Dance Class

ATLANTA, May 15, 2018 -- Yoga instructors encouraged injured veterans and their family members to increase their metabolisms, gain strength, and increase flexibility through a Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) ladies-only yoga dance class.

Vinyasa yoga combines elements of power yoga, fitness, dance, and meditation. The class practiced long-held poses and deep breathing techniques while grooving to upbeat popular songs. This style of strength training yoga taught warriors liberating and exciting ways to use these techniques as part of their recoveries.

"I was always interested in taking yoga, but the idea of adding dance music seemed more exciting," said Army veteran Beverly Townes from Snellville, Georgia. "I thoroughly enjoyed the event even though some of the moves were a little challenging, but the staff provided alternate moves and positions for those of us who were unable to do the regular positions."

"As a mother of four small children, a caregiver to my husband who is a combat Army veteran, and being an Army veteran myself, I find peace and joy is spending time with our children," said Caleb Texidor. "I find education very important, above all. The event stood out to me because it gave our children the chance to learn, be active, and exercise their minds."
