Yoga Teacher, Veterans Yoga Project
From Laverne: "I am a USAF Veteran, served in the 509th Bombardment Wing, Strategic Air Command. I continue to serve our Veterans as an Occupational Safety and Health Specialist for the Department of Veterans Affairs and as a Mindful Resilience Yoga Instructor with the Veterans Yoga Project. I have also been involved in the Fitness and Health Industry for 36 years. My 200-hour Yoga certification was obtained in the Inaugural Mindful Resilience Yoga Teacher Training with the Veterans Yoga Project. The experience of learning and teaching yoga principles with fellow Veterans has generated a passion for yoga in my life which is undeniable. It is my desire to share the tools of yoga with others, especially Veterans in hopes of helping them benefit by finding peace in their lives through healing of mind, body and soul.
