Thankyou Sierra for this gentle class and the inspirational talk about yoga, philosophy and this wonderful connection. May our practice always be a source of happiness
Hello, my name is John Mory, I am a retired Army veteran. I served as a Special Forces Medic for most of his career deploying to Afghanistan, Iraq and other numerous locations throughout Asia and the Middle East. After retiring from the military, I found myself not being able to adjust to the 9-5 office job and started working as a fire fighter/paramedic and have been doing that since 2013.I found yoga while searching for an alternative to medications for anxiety, depression, and hypervigilance. Yoga and meditation made such a profound difference in regulating my nervous system and managing my PTSD symptoms that I became a yoga teacher myself with the intention of teaching and passing this knowledge onto fellow veterans. I see yoga as medicine that helps to calm the nervous system and relax the mind. Creating a more resilient and regulated nervous system through a regular practice.
