Virtual yoga class for Veterans in Jacksonville
Virtual yoga class for Veterans in Jacksonville

We have begun to see a shift with our team, students and partner facilities, and classes are slowly beginning to resume back in-person.  Over the past year of the pandemic, we have pivoted programming to remain relevent and consistent and 2021 has shed light on the necessity to keep the hybrid model (in-person and virtual class availability). The data collected from virtual classes evaluated aside in-person data proves that both options reduce stress and improve mood.  This is huge!  Throughout a time when individuals were reporting an increase in loneliness and isolation, Yoga 4 Change was able to continue to offer programming historically proven to increase connectedness, self-compassion and positive coping skills.  Thank you for your continued support.  We hope you always remember that your belief in our mission aides in allowing greater access to mental health resources for Veterans, youth, individuals experiencing incarcerationg and those living with mental health conditions.  Below is a quote from a student who was court-ordered to take our classes:

""Yoga is like that Hummus you never thought you'd like until you try it, or like that first round of golf that you're dreading until you hit that perfect shot, and you wonder what took you so long to try or do. Yoga 4 Change gives me clarity of mind and puts me in that place of peace. No matter what feelings of discomfort I might have going into a session of Yoga 4 Change, I always feel like a well-oiled machine upon completion. [Yoga 4 Change Teacher] Susie has such a soothing voice, as well as her easy to follow presentation, that I never feel overwhelmed on whether or not I'll be able to follow. In summation, every time I go through a class of Yoga 4 Change, no matter how I might feel prior, I have always been in a better place Physically, Mentally, & Spiritually...A once skeptic but since converted 'Yogarian'.
