Free Community Yoga to Benefit
Wednesday, July 29, 2015
6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
Holly Freed, Vice President of Meghan's Foundation, will lead a very special class to benefit veterans coping with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
This physical yoga practice is open to all levels and abilities, however, participants should be able to get up and down from the floor with ease. Please bring a yoga mat, as well as your props (blocks/blanket) if you use them. Pose variations will be offered to make the practice both challenging and accessible. For a less physical practice, Gentle Yoga at the Mill is offered on Monday nights.
Holly Freed, J.D., RYT, is a recovering attorney who came to yoga for physical fitness and kept coming back to the mat because it offers so much more. Since leaving the law in 2013, Holly found purpose in giving back by volunteering for Meghan’s Foundation, a local non-profit organization that she now serves as vice president and board member.
Holly completed a 200-hour teacher training at DIG Yoga in Lambertville, and she has additional training in Mindful Yoga Therapy (MYT) for veterans. Holly’s teaching is inspired by mindfulness and non-judgment and is anchored by the core belief that yoga can be accessible, empowering, and fun for all.
Meghan’s Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization led by Bucks County resident Thom Shortt, a Marine Corps Vietnam War Veteran. The Foundation’s mission is to raise awareness and provide support for military veterans who may be coping with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to help them reintegrate into society and family. Meghan's Foundation does this by developing free, trauma-sensitive yoga and meditation classes for veterans. For more information, please visit http://meghansfoundation.org
