Helping the World Feel Better – One Breath at a Time.

The Connected Warriors mission is to empower Service Members, Veterans and their Families worldwide through Trauma-Conscious Yoga

Vision: To support the well being of veterans, service members, and their families in communities nationwide. Connected Warriors is a community based volunteer organization providing free, trauma-conscious yoga therapy for service members, veterans and their families in the United States.

Connected Warriors was founded in August 2011 by a group of professionals and yoga teachers in the South Florida area who, as long time practitioners themselves, know the powerfully beneficial effects of this ancient system. Connected Warriors has established a nationwide network that includes 568 Certified Yoga Teachers who volunteer their time and talents to instruct classes at local yoga studios, community veteran centers and other donated spaces. As of 2015 we offer free classes are available in 12 states and counting... We can also be found on Universities, Veteran's Centers, Veterans Medical Centers and Military Bases across the Nation. Our instructors are trained in trauma-conscious methods and beginners are always welcome!

Therapeutic yoga practices, including relaxation and meditation, are a valuable treatment component for post traumatic stress and other trauma-related psycho-emotional difficulties. Overseas deployments can affect service members, veterans and their families for years. Participants of our current classes learn how to handle stressful situations in a more relaxed manner by quieting and focusing their mind, which encourages positive thoughts and self-acceptance.

AS OF JANUARY 2019: We host over 1000 weekly classes in 19 states, 27 VA Facilities, 11 active duty military installations, 5 countries and 2 navy ships. Thank you to all of our volunteers, students, staff, donors, yoga community and sponsors we couldn't do this without you. Major milestone for Connected Warriors Serving Those Who Have Served.
