Yoga in ME of Eliot is the parent studio of the nonprofit FREE Yoga for Veterans. I serve on the Board of this fabulous organization, which provides trauma-sensitive yoga, as well as a deep sense of community, to veterans and military service members on the ME/NH Seacoast. Under the leadership of Nancy Garnhart, FYFV provides three classes each week created especially for veterans–for free! After several years of success growing FYFV, Nancy decided to make it an official 501(c)(3) so she can pay her instructors, promote and expand her classes, and print a gorgeous, accessible handbook that illustrates the poses with photos of her veteran students. So we are doing a few fundraising events this year in support of those efforts!

On Sunday, June 9, join us any time between 10 am and 5 pm at Roland’s Old School Barber Shop, 7 Shapleigh Road, Kittery. Men’s and women’s haircuts will be available, drop in only, GIVE WHAT YOU CAN! Every dollar counts to keep this important program going. See you there!
