This week, YogaGlo was honored to be apart of a healing, inspiring experience with the LA Kings and The Jimmy Miller Foundation’s Ocean Therapy program – using yoga and surfing to help heal veterans. Ocean Therapy is an adaptive surfing program to assist individuals coping with mental and physical illness in accessing the ocean environment. Surfing has long since been a sport associated with freedom and independence and has the ability to support individuals with special needs in increasing their self-esteem and self-confidence.
Both physical and spiritual, surf and yoga work together to help achieve a clearer mind and a stronger body. The two passions are perfectly matched with each move strengthening the other. So what better way to kick off the day than with our very own Marc Holzman, leading our group through a beach yoga session before our vets jumped into the water for surf lessons.
It was an amazing day that we will truly never forget. For more information on the Jimmy Miller Foundation, click here.
