I have served in the Army Reserves for 22 years. During this time, I served in Operation Desert Shield/Storm. After returning from Saudi Arabia, I experienced symptoms of PTSD that were debilitating. After 9 years of therapy, I understood how PTSD affected me, I could see the emotional storm approaching but was unable to stop the destruction the storm caused until I found my yoga mat 9 years later. I was overwhelmed by the discovery that through my yoga practice, I could manage PTSD symptoms. Therapy helped me understand the emotional storm, yoga gave me the tools to manage the storm so that I could integrate my war experience into my life at home. Since that time, I got certified as a yoga teacher, own a yoga studio, and established a reintegration program for veterans, There & Back Again, which incorporates yoga and meditation. My goal is to share the healing affect yoga can have so that veterans can find immediate relief.
