"I was struggling to find my new identity while dealing with past - mistakes, people I had wronged and trauma. Add to that a healthy dose of PTSD, chronic depression, pain and then a traumatic brain injury. Yoga leveled out the playing field for me to be able to deal with everything… It’s not a one-stop or a cure-all. It complements all the other things." - Read the Veteran's Story
"OG Yoga is something that everyone needs to be exposed to. Incorporating the trauma piece is really important and needs to be spread as far and wide as it can because it can not only help the people who are working in this sphere become calmer, more mindful people, but it can help so many people who are already suffering. I love the idea of yoga as a form of social justice, and that's a huge part of why I wanted to join OG Yoga in the first place. It’s accessible, and it's so scalable to all different abilities." - Read the Dancer's Story.
"My yoga practice gave me tools to come and be with myself. No longer was I meditating to leave my body, I was meditating to get into my body. I was trying to leave my body because I believed it wasn’t safe. But, it was a gift coming back to the body. Yoga really is the only tool to show up and live a human life.
