YogaShield® Yoga For First Responders (YFFR)® trains a skillset to process stress, build resilience, and enhance performance. It uses a specific protocol and ground rules that make it job-specific and culturally informed for law enforcement officers, fire fighters, emergency medical technicians, military personnel, dispatchers, nurses, and doctors. Experience clarity in the mind while on-shift and regulate the nervous system between events to improve life at home. Click here to learn more about the YFFR non-profit organization.

Mastering the breath and mind are a fundamental part of yoga. Yoga is NOT about stretching or relaxing. It teaches the mind and body to stay in connection to optimally respond to stress with mental clarity and physical precision, followed by quick deactivation of the sympathetic nervous system. There are numerous techniques that improve focus, improve self-command, and process stress chemicals out of the body.

Public class offerings for anyone are listed on the Events page. Private classes are available for custom tutoring. Link to schedule.
