This companion/emotional support dog program provides opportunities for warriors to learn and practice positive training methods with adoptable rescued pit bulls within the local animal shelter. Participatory training and bonding with these dogs opens the door to connection and awareness.

Community gardens and spiritual growth opportunities are offered to inspire meaningful interactions and to support continuous growth. This program provides safe and purposeful venues that encourage and support shared purpose and integration into broader communities.

Population(s) Served

The Warrior Spirit Project 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Program is a uniquely integrated system for preparing veterans, first responders, and warrior family members and supporters to lead safe and accessible yoga and meditation sessions that are trauma-informed and adaptive to the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of the participant. This program provides the essential competencies needed to teach in any setting, while providing additional instruction in the unique approach of teaching effectively to the warrior community. In addition, participants learn about the healing power of human-animal connection and how to facilitate yoga in the company of therapy horses.
