We have exciting news to share: Camp Aftermath has partnered with YogaFit Canada! As of January 2019, YogaFit Canada is now Camp Aftermath’s official yoga sponsor!
Founded in 1994, YogaFit is the largest yoga school in North America, with instructors spread out across Canada. YogaFit Canada instructors will provide specific instruction to Camp Aftermath participants while they continue developing positive habits towards long-term management of their PTSD.
Recently, YogaFit generously provided training for Camp Aftermath’s chairperson, Farid Yaghini, in their Yoga Fit for Warriors program. This comprehensive trauma-sensitive yoga program is designed to provide the instruction and tools to help use the physical body to help release the tension and stresses associated with mental anguish. Created by a military veteran and a yoga therapist, YogaFit for Warriors is ideal for yoga teachers, mental health professionals, military personnel and their families, first responders, and healthcare workers.
Camp Aftermath is grateful for YogaFit Canada’s generosity, especially to founder Beth Shaw and Master Instructor Terra Nicolle, for their compassion and support towards Camp Aftermath’s mission of providing long-term management of PTSD through volunteerism
