“Through the practice of Yoga, my life has become less anxiety laden and even more joyful than before my combat experience in Operation Iraqi Freedom.”

Jeffrey L., Chief Warrant Officer 2, OIF Combat Veteran


The classes are taught by certified yoga teachers who have completed at least 200 hours of training. Additionally, Connected Warriors teachers are required to take 4 additional hours of training specifically focused on issues faced by military personnel and their families. This additional training is intended to create a better experience for the men and women who come to class.


Laura Nickerson, one of the yoga instructors at Connected Warriors will be at our event on May 31st!!

Laura has been teaching yoga to veterans for about three years and have trained with David Emerson. Her students’ diagnoses include PTSD and TBI, and she is very familiar working with both. Laura also has the experience and ability to accommodate amputees as well as those needing an adaptive practice.
