BtS Veterans Day Yoga Event
VETERAN'S DAY DONATION-BASED YOGA EVENT
A local nonprofit, Beneath the Surface Foundation, teaches combat veterans and LE struggling with post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injuries to use yoga and extreme water sports (kiting, surfing, free diving, etc.) as a positive and healthy outlet. In a community that often feels abandoned and judged, we are working to shift the paradigm by building a network of support to encourage their continued progress.
Join us for an evening of connection, powerful yoga practices, and a glimpse into the work that feeds our mission. We will take you on a journey through breath work, vinyasa, and yin yoga sequences. Foundation apparel will be available for purchase before and after the event.
ALL PROCEEDS GO DIRECTLY TO SUPPORTING THE MISSION OF BENEATH THE SURFACE FOUNDATION.
