Veterans Yoga in Richland County was founded by Dale Warren as a way to support veterans and their families.  Area teachers take turns leading free weekly classes for veterans, as well as their family members.

Yoga for Veterans ~ Mindful Movement for Resiliency classes will focus on mindful breathing and moving, the relationship between the body and mind, nervous system regulation, and the ways in which a regular yoga practice can help relieve stress and uncover a sense of balance and ease in daily life, as well as in particularly stressful circumstances.

We will explore various breathing practices, gentle movement and postures, deep relaxation, and gratitude meditation. All are encouraged to move at their own pace, take breaks, and ask questions. Please bring any props you like (yoga blocks, blankets, and straps) or anything from home that would feel supportive for relaxation, such as a blanket or towel. Chairs are available on site for those who would benefit from a seated practice. Yoga for Veterans Mindful Movement for Resiliency offers students the space and time to explore, remain curious, challenge themselves, be gentle with themselves, and ask for and receive support. This class is open to active military, veterans, and family members.

To find out more, please email questions to or Dale at and keep in touch with veterans yoga via facebook.
