USS KIDD to offer yoga to veterans
BATON ROUGE - The USS KIDD Veteran’s Museum will host a “Yoga for Veterans” class next week.
Yoga is being used across military installations to help veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injuries and other ailments.
The class is a part of the KIDD’s alternative therapy programs and the goal is to make the programs available to local veterans for free.
Practicing yoga can aid in mental well-being but can also reduce the emotional symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain while improving physical flexibility and sleep.
“I didn’t know much about the benefits of yoga until I tried it at the KIDD,” Navy veteran Buck Hawks.
“This class taught me about a new form of stress relief that I hadn’t considered,” Hawks said.
Veteran’s are encouraged to pre-register for this free class by calling (225) 342-1942 or joining the Facebook event: KIDD's Yoga for Veterans.
