All sessions are free for veterans and first responders
Each session begins with basic, adaptive yoga postures or movements that can be done from a mat or a chair and accessible and modifiable for EVERY body. The session ends with a period of restorative integration, including iRest or another form of meditation, depending on the teacher leading the session.
iRest is an evidence-based, mind-body approach that is the result of thirty years of observation, research, and hands-on development by Dr. Richard Miller and associates. Its practice is integrative as it heals the various unresolved issues and traumas that are present in your body and mind, and restorative as it enables you to recognize your innate peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life.
Yoga with Horses at Equest
Equest has an outstanding reputation for providing equine activities and therapies to children and adults in the North Texas community. Warrior Spirit Project has proudly partnered with Equest Hooves for Heroes to offer “Yoga with Horses” to our veteran and first-responder population. This monthly class is held on the third Sunday of every month from 2:00-3:30pm Central. Each session begins with an opportunity to safely interact with certified therapy animals in a secured and monitored setting. Following, a WSP Yoga instructor guides clients through a series of therapeutic breath movements and gentle yoga poses to help release built up stress, tension, and anxiety. Finally, a trained iRest facilitator offers a guided meditation in a secured classroom setting that allows for rest in mind and body, and the potential for relief for a variety of stress-related conditions, including depression and insomnia. This unique opportunity is available free of charge to veterans, military, and first-responders, but is only open to the general public once per quarter.
