Supported by a community of brothers, male veterans learn iRest techniques to comfort the body, ease the mind, and promote healing.

Annie Okerlin demonstrates how yoga and the breath can help us self-regulate after tension or trauma.

Research shows that yoga and relaxation practices help veterans reintegrate after the challenging experiences of military service. In this yoga retreat for male veterans, you learn techniques to comfort the body, ease the mind, and promote healing.

Guided by Annie Okerlin and veteran Nicholas Caris, and supported by a community of brothers, you practice yoga and learn to modify postures to accommodate unique physical limitations and ailments—including chronic pain and amputations.

Experience daily iRest (Integrative Restoration) sessions, a technique endorsed by the U.S. Army Surgeon General and offered at military hospitals nationwide. A guided meditation based on yoga nidra, iRest promotes deep relaxation and acceptance of everything as it is. It helps the nervous system return to a balanced state of well-being, which is necessary to heal unresolved trauma and physical and emotional wounds.

You'll return home with valuable tools to continue your healing journey.

Application for Scholarships: An application is required; apply early, as enrollment is limited and spots fill quickly. Full tuition for this retreat is $395 ($355 Members); scholarships are available to cover all but $75 of the total cost.
