If you haven’t heard of the Warriors at Ease organization and the amazing support they provide to U.S. veterans, current service members, and families, please read on. Their vision is to “integrate yoga and meditation into military and civilian settings to support the health, resiliency, post-traumatic growth, and connection of service members, veterans and their families.

In addition to providing yoga and meditation classes on military installations, in VA facilities, and in the community, Warriors at Ease also organizes retreats and programs, provides training and certifications for teachers, and more.

This year, Warriors at Ease hosted their first charity golf tournament with military service members and veterans in attendance. USST and friends had the pleasure of being able to support and participate in the event that was held on Friday, November 15 at the Biltmore Golf Course in Miami. Our teams played well and had the honor of earning 1st and 2nd place. It was a fun day on the course, and we look forward to being a part of next year’s event!

Warriors at Ease (WAE); established as a 501(c)(3) organization in 2011. The pioneering co-founders were involved in some of the first clinical studies funded by the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) involving the use of yoga and meditation as an adjunct therapy for combat-related health conditions. The Warriors at Ease curriculum was created to train professionals in evidence-based techniques to support the health, resilience, and healing of our nation’s troops.

There are many organizations providing free yoga & mediation services to the military population. Warriors at Ease is focused on training those teachers on the unique aspects of military culture and on accessible and evidence-based techniques proved to support reintegration after combat.
