Justin Blaze, Founder and President of VETOGA, is planning to be in attendance and presenting about the work he’s doing to build sustainable communities by bringing the healing aspects of yoga, meditation, and health arts to military, veterans, their families, and communities. They accomplish this by holding free monthly yoga classes, events and veteran specific 200-Hour Teacher Trainings throughout the year. They provide access to a range of healing modalities to facilitate healthy minds, bodies and spirits. Sustainable communities are created through their Teacher Trainings that work to equip veterans with the holistic tools and teachings to continue to pass on the healing power of yoga. VETOGA is a non-profit based in Washington, D.C.
I’ll update you further if there are any changes to speakers!
Update on Hope for the Warriors:
We were able to reschedule Tabatha Glass with Hope For the Warriors to attend the May 17th meeting. So they will be back next month to present about their organization.
