Nicholas Caris, RYT, is a Marine veteran who completed three tours of duty in Iraq, South America, and Afghanistan.
After being honorably discharged in 2011, he tried his first yoga class and thought he’d never return. But he soon began to have some serious physical problems and exhibit post-traumatic stress symptoms. At the encouragement of a friend who was a yoga teacher, he decided to try again and found it an effective way to help with his physical and emotional challenges.
Moved to continue his own journey and to help others suffering like himself, Caris completed a yoga teacher training in 2014 and now teaches adaptive yoga to veterans through the Exalted Warrior Foundation.
