The Warriors Mind Body Fitness Conference

"It is very fitting that our Warrior training which helps to heal the wounds inflicted by war took place in a location that serves as an oasis of pleasure for these families who sacrifice so much."

Last year, I was thrilled to be part of the first ever YogaFit Warriors MBF. We were blessed that the Shades of Green Resort allowed our training to be held at their facility. As a Disney property available exclusively for military personnel, we were surrounded by military families and even saw several honeymoon couples enjoying the start of their life together. It is very fitting that our Warrior training which helps to heal the wounds inflicted by war took place in a location that serves as an oasis of pleasure for these families who sacrifice so much.

The Warrior Kids training was introduced at our MBF and it brought out so many mixed emotions in us all. Trainees included yoga instructors, of course, as well as physicians, social workers, educators, veterans, parents and survivors of childhood abuse to name a few. Finding ways to intervene with education, healing and change when trauma affects our youth is vital to changing the way our population interacts throughout their lives. There is so much we can do to have a positive influence and recovery begins with awareness, understanding and using the many tools available to us as yoga practitioners but also as kind, loving, awake human beings.

"Finding ways to intervene with education, healing and change when trauma affects our youth is vital to changing the way our population interacts throughout their lives."

In addition to attending training, I helped to staff the registration area & boutique and was moved by the amount of tears, laughter and personal "ah ha" moments that so many trainees experienced throughout the 4 days. The hidden gift of every YogaFit training is the deeper understanding of oneself that comes as we seek to increase our effectiveness, qualifications and ability to better serve our clients. Our Warriors MBF gave us the opportunity to share a sacred space to learn, heal, give and receive so much to one another.

Thinking about attending a training at our 2016 YogaFit Warriors MBF? It would be a decision you will not regret. Thank you Shaye, Kristy, LaMor & Mary for an amazing 4 days! You can register today by clicking HERE.
