It was a packed house last week at the Zoblocki V.A. Medical Center, as dozens of veterans rolled out yoga mats for the first time.
They were among the first to attend a new series of free, drop-in yoga classes focused on relaxation and breathing.
The classes are open to any veteran who receives benefits at the V.A., no matter their skill level or age.
In addition to the physical benefits, Instructor Erin Bullock said yoga may help veterans clear their minds of disturbing thoughts, which is especially helpful for those suffering from PTSD.
