Hatha $7 Donation Classes to Benefit Trauma and Resiliency Resources, Inc.'s Warrior Camp® Program

Select Sundays from 12:30-1:30pm (see weekly schedule). 100% of the proceeds from this class will be donated to Trauma and Resiliency Resources, Inc.'s Warrior Camp® Program.
TRR's Warrior Camp® is a 7-day clinical treatment program for active duty military, veterans (of all service branches and all eras) and first responders who suffer from Moral Injury and post-traumatic stress. Moral Injury is an existential crisis arising out of perpetrating acts against one's moral code. Often, these acts were necessary at the time for one's survival, and once the urgency of the incident is over, the wounds of Moral Injury are left. Currently, 20 veterans per day are committing suicide. TRR believes this is a direct result of Moral Injury. TRR's Warrior Camp® integrates five treatment modalities: Eye-Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, Yoga (including Guided Relaxation), Narrative Writing and Sweat Lodge in this groundbreaking and successful program.
