We just posted an article on Lehigh Valley Health Network’s yoga class offering. However, we would be remiss if we did not mention Meghan’s Foundation which has been conducting free yoga classes for active duty military, veterans and their spouses for quite some time in the Lehigh Valley. It was probably the first to introduce the idea of using yoga as a way of coping with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to the Lehigh Valley.
All levels of experience and ability are welcomed. Their instructors have training in mindful, trauma-sensitive yoga. They’ll make you feel comfortable and among friends — one of their instructors, Liz Thompson, actually served in the Marine Corps during the Iraq War.
To give you an idea of what they do, they state: “The instructor leads class by inviting participants to explore breathing practices, basic yoga postures, gentle stretching, meditation, and relaxation techniques. Instructors will offer variations of postures to make sure that everyone who wishes to can participate in some version of each posture. Participants can sit on a chair or use a mat. If you do not have your own mat, we will provide one for you. You have complete control over your own practice. You are free to sit or lay down, simply breathing, for an entire class if you wish. The choice is yours.”
