Your Mission is on Your Mat

Intensity becomes focus. Focus becomes peace. 

Yoga, meditation, and mindfulness have already been making a huge difference in the lives of veterans. Your partcipation in this program has the potential to make profound improvements, not only in your own life, but also in the lives of other veterans, as well as active duty personnel. 

Our goal is to offer free access for veterans to yoga, meditation, and mindfulness classes through Yoga for Men's Prospective Cohort Study of Yoga and Mindfulness for Psychological and Physical Wellness, which is being conducted in conjunction with the University of South Florida College of Public Health. Note that this program is open to men and women from all branches of service and is not limited by nationality or country of service.

Brian Anderson of  Veterans Alternative talks about the benefits of yoga for veterans. 

The Study

Help yourself, your community, and your fellow veterans by taking advantage of this ancient practice with a modern approach.

The Program

You get free access to yoga, meditation, and mindfulness classes crafted especially for veterans and active duty personnel, and you'll have complete access to Yoga for Men's on-line library of yoga classes, as well as extras, such as tai chi, educational material, and more. 

The Benefits

We already know that yoga, meditation, and mindfulness is helpful to veterans. Now let's help get it to them for free. Your participation in the study may help make yoga, meditation, and mindfulness available to a large number of veterans.

The Study

The University of South Florida College of Public Health will ask for your consent, then ask you some preliminary eligibility questions, and then you'll simply answer some questions about once every three months for a year.

The Instructors

Our Instructors are the best there are. We've got names you know, and names you'll come to love. We've recruited teachers from a variety of existing programs that specialize in yoga for veterans, and we're adding more all the time.
