Yoga truly is for everyone. Yoga for Warriors by Beryl Bender Birch is a book written specifically for veterans and military service men and women, a population not often considered as “typical” yoga students. Which is why we’re so delighted to be offering this book as a giveaway to you fine folks. Though we’ve seen how yoga and meditation can help with prehabilitation, rehabilitation and the effects of trauma, having the tools bound together in one book makes it a super helpful resource and reference not only for the students but for the teachers and therapists wishing to work with this particular group of students. (For even more info, read the book review here.)
WIN: We’re giving away 3 copies of Yoga for Warriors: Basic Training in Strength, Resilience and Peace of Mind by Beryl Bender Birch, courtesy of Sounds True. Thanks to the Give Back Yoga Foundation through their Buy One, Give One program, for these 3 books, we will be making a donation so that 3 more books may be provided for free to a veteran or active duty service man or woman.
TO ENTER: Let’s make this one super simple. If there were one go-to yoga pose, a meditation or breathing technique of the moment that you would offer another to help them pause and recharge, rejuvenate or refocus, what would it be? Share with us in the comments below, post on facebook and/or on twitter. Be sure to tag us @yogadork!
Deets: One entry per person will be counted. The giveaway will remain open until 11:59pm Monday, October 13. Three winners will be chosen at random and announced soon after!
UPDATE: Congrats to Sarah, Karen Greer and @dfgyoga! Thanks to everyone who entered. We hope you will continue to find peacefulness through yoga and perhaps share it with others. Remember, if you’d like a copy of Yoga for Warriors, when you purchase through the Give Back Yoga Foundation they will provide a free copy to a veteran or active duty service member.
