Join Eighteenth Element Yoga and Various Colorado Yoga Teachers as we give Gratitude to All Our Veterans.
Eighteenth Element Yoga is parterning iwth Veterans Yoga Project and 22 Until None as a part of a national weeklong fundraising and awareness-raising event. EEY will stay open for 60 hours straight beginning 30 mins before Sunrise on November 11th Until 30 minutes after Sunset on November 13th.
Nearly 3 million men and women have served in the military since Sept 11, 2001. Approximately half of these service members are dealing with posttraumatic stress, chronic pain, depression and/or anxiety. In addition there are approximately 12 million living veterans from previous conflicts also still in the process of recovery from the wounds of war. By providing yoga teacher training programs, practice resources for veterans, and healing retreats, Veterans Yoga Project has supported the recovery and resilience-building process of thousands of military veterans and their family members.
There will be various classes during the 60 hours ranging from Meditation, Kids and Power Vinyasa, all of which are donation based. There will be 9 highlighted classes that will be held each day 6:00-7:30 AM, 11:30 AM-1:00PM, and 4:30-6:00 PM honoring the 22 Veterans that are taken from this world a day due to PTS(d). These classes are listed as Saluting the 22.

We invite everyone to Give Back to those who have given everything to perserve your freedom.
