"At Eighteenth Element Yoga, we believe healing happens when a person's mind, body, and spirit are balanced.
We provide outreach to our Wounded Warriors and First Responders through adaptive yoga as well as those afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other trauma. We can't cure PTSD but we can provide the tools necessary to help cope with it.
It is through yoga, that we at Eighteenth Element are able to serve our community and help transform victims into survivors!"
"The aim of this program is to empower public servants with powerful mindfulness practices for cultivating resilience to stress and peak performance on the job. By bringing yoga, meditation and mindfulness training to law enforcement officials, firefighters, EMTs, paramedics and other first responders across the nation, we can offer these individuals valuable tools to help them stay present and observant at times of intense stress. These practices can also support individuals who are experiencing symptoms of post-traumatic stress or secondary traumatic stress, due to the life-or-death situations they face in the line of duty."
"Veterans Yoga Project offers a wide variety of resources for Veterans and active duty Military.
The first step is usually the most difficult on the path to recovery and building resilience. These programs provide individuals the opportunity to experiment with the Five Tools (Breathing, Meditation, Mindful Movement, Guided Rest and Gratitude) by offering a practice library.
We invite and encourage you to test the waters. These tools have proven to be very effective and may be right for you."
