Happy Veterans Day!

By News

Many studies are touting the benefits of yoga for military members, including reduction in use of pharmaceutical medications, increased range of motion, decreased depression and more.

At Sterling Hot Yoga & Wellness, we are proud to count several military and veterans among our students. 

We have offered classes to military units, and we have teachers trained in trauma-informed and mindful resilience practices.

One of our community partners is Veterans Recovery Resources, a non-profit, community-based mental wellness program that is developed by veterans for veterans. One of our own Sterling yogis, John Kilpatrick, is a 30-year Army reservist and founder of the program. 

The goal of Veterans Recovery Resources is to improve veteran well-being by removing barriers to mental healthcare. John is passionate about providing a unique recovery program for veterans and their families suffering from substance abuse, PTSD and other mental health issues.

There are 64,000 veterans in the Gulf Coast area, the second largest concentration of these brave men and women in the entire country.

On this Veterans Day, we are especially thankful for those who have served and continue to serve. We are also proud to provide our support to these men and women and everyone in our community.

October, much less 2020, has not been without its challenges between pandemics and hurricanes, so we’re feeling pretty inspired by these yogis who made an even stronger commitment to their practice and succeeded! 

Our 30-Day Fall for Yoga Challenge was just the motivation needed for these students to become more dedicated and more determined.
