Here’s a Vet Center that offers yoga classes to stretch minds and bodies.
Working a full-time job, raising a family and everything else in between, the hours and days fill up fast for one Army Veteran. It can be hard to slow down and to find time for important self-care.
Every other Monday, Army Veteran Abena Ntoso joins a yoga class at the Houston West Vet Center to help her decrease stress and to be more physically active.
“One of the things I really like about yoga is that it allows you to find a sense of inner calm and peace. Yoga allows me to feel grounded within my body,” Ntoso said.
Layla Becker is a readjustment counselor at the Vet Center and trauma-informed yoga is one of the classes she teaches. The class is held both in-person and virtually for Veterans. Becker teaches Veterans of all ages, all levels of experience and many first timers.
