In this yoga retreat for women veterans, we gather as a community to gain skills that develop resilience and nourish, strengthen, and heal the body and mind. Guided by Annie Okerlin and U.S. Army veteran Susan Alden, we practice yoga while learning to accommodate unique physical limitations and ailments—including chronic pain and amputations. We experience daily guided meditations in iRest (Integrative Restoration), a technique endorsed by the U.S. Army Surgeon General and offered at military hospitals nationwide.

Based on the ancient practice of Yoga Nidra, iRest promotes deep relaxation and acceptance of everything as it is. It helps the nervous system return to a balanced state of well-being, which helps to heal unresolved trauma, as well as physical and emotional wounds.

We leave with skills that continue to serve us in life, helping us to restore life balance and reintegrate after the challenging experiences of military service.

Application/Scholarships: Application is required; apply early, as enrollment is limited and spots fill quickly. Full tuition for this retreat is $395 ($355 Members); scholarships are available to cover all but $75 of the total cost.
