Meditation and Yoga Retreat for Veterans - Copper Beech Institute

  • Copper Beech Institute 303 Tunxis Road West Hartford, CT, 06107 United States (map)

IDEAL FOR: All levels including beginners

This retreat, designed specifically for veterans and their spouses or partners, teaches powerful mind- body practices that strengthen resilience, bring peace of mind, and relieve traumatic symptoms.

A mindful, embodied yoga practice can provide relief from symptoms and help veterans develop supportive skills for everyday life. In this retreat, participants will learn practical yoga and mindfulness-based tools that decrease the stress, anxiety, and sleep problems that many returning veterans experience. The retreat will employ Mindful Yoga Therapy, an empirically-informed, clinically-tested program comprising five practices: pranayama (breathing), asana (postures connected with breath), yoga nidra, meditation, and gratitude. Each practice is a tool that veterans can use to cope with post-traumatic stress. Together, they form a comprehensive system — or toolbox — that will carry veterans into a life of strength and resilience.

Anyone who has served in the military or is currently serving is most welcome to attend this retreat. Spouses and partners of veterans are also welcome to join us.

Tuition: $25, includes accommodations.
