VETERANS GRATITUDE WEEK 2017
Join Forces with VYP by teaching a community benefit class to express gratitude for our freedom and honor those who served the United States in all wars.
On November 3 - 12, 2017, Veterans Yoga Project will be hosting our fourth annual National Yoga Event Veterans Gratitude Week. This event enables communities to support recovery and resilience among our veterans, families, and communities. Throughout the week, we raise awareness about Post-Traumatic Stress (Disorder) and the work we are doing through yoga classes and events across USA!
Estimates of PTSD Among Veterans
- 500,000 Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom & New Dawn Veterans with PTS(D)
- 80,000 Gulf War Veterans with PTS(D)
- 420,000 Vietnam Veterans with PTS(D)
In 2016, over 425 Veterans Gratitude Week classes and events were held across 46 states. These events were attended by hundreds of veterans and civilians alike, raising awareness and much needed funds for Veterans Yoga Project to continue to provide yoga resources to military veterans and their families.
