Army Recognizing Yoga as Valid Rehab for Veterans

"Remember that there's no judgment, no competition with yourself or with anyone around you," says Instructor Hylan Hampton as he leads a group of war-wounded veterans through yoga class at Fort Campbell in Kentucky.

Pretty awesome, right?!

NPR reports on this story, in which the Army is recognizing yoga as a valid form of rehab for veterans who suffer from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).

We love that organizations like Give Back Yoga are working toward making yoga accessible to veterans and are excited about this trend!

Namaste to that!
