Rhodella Hughes, owner of Yoga in the Adirondacks, recently completed the 15-hour Veterans Yoga Project Mindful Resilience Training at BE here Now Yoga in Cheshire, Connecticut.

The training was developed by Veterans Yoga Project (VYP), an educational and advocacy organization dedicated to improving the health and well-being of military veterans. Working in partnership with veterans, active-duty military, student veteran groups and other nonprofit organizations, VYP-trained instructors teach more than 100 free yoga classes per week for veterans and their families. VYP’s goal is to “serve those who have served,” whether they are struggling with severe PTSD or are focused on increasing their own resilience and giving back to others.

“VYP is a young, growing organization working together to support recovery and resilience,” Hughes says. “I’m honored to join their mission of supporting our veterans, families and communities.”

Yoga in the Adirondacks offers yoga retreats, group and private classes, workshops and events. For more info, call 914.556.8258, email [email protected] or visit YogaInTheAdirondacks.com.
