Ali Warrick US Navy | Spouse |
Ali was first introduced to Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans through co-host @Lizcorwin during a donation-based class she held at @thamesstyoga at Newport, RI where Ali completed her teacher training. Listening to Liz describe certain emotions that people with PTSD confront on a daily basis was incredibly heart breaking. It hit home for her, knowing that her husband, who is serving in the United States Navy, could one day be faced with those same emotions.
When Ali moved to Hawaii, she began working with the military spouses on base. She taught weekly yoga classes on the beach and was amazed at the outcome both for her students and herself. This is how I was first called to support my military family.
Ali linked up with Chris (who is also friends with Liz) and launched #22aDayChallenge for the first time earlier this year. This challenge combined her passion for yoga (and social media) with the important cause of raising awareness and funds for organizations that support our veterans. The first round was pulled together within a matter of weeks and made a pretty big impact...so she is even more excited this time as she hopes this next round will make an even greater impact for our veterans.
