IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–November 2, 2022–
YogaSix, the leading national boutique yoga brand, today announced a partnership with Veterans Yoga Project (VYP) to give back to America’s heroes through the mind-body experience of yoga. As part of the partnership, YogaSix becomes a permanent sponsor of VYP and will hold donation-based classes for the organization at its 160 studios across the country, beginning this Veterans Gratitude Week (November 4-13). 2022).
VYP’s primary mission is to support the recovery and resilience of our veterans, military families and communities. According to the Pew Research Center, about half of post-9/11 veterans say it was somewhat or very difficult for them to readapt to civilian life after their military service. Veterans who participate in VYP programs have reported that they sleep better, concentrate and think more clearly, deal with anger and aggression more easily, and find comfort in their own skin.
“When you think of the incredible benefits of yoga on body and mind, it’s hard to believe more veterans haven’t discovered the practice. By partnering with the Veterans Yoga Project and tapping into the network of nearly 200 YogaSix studios, we will be able to reach thousands more service members and change their lives through the power of yoga,” said Lindsay Junk, President of YogaSix.
Over the past few years, YogaSix has become one of the world’s leading boutique yoga brands, reviving the ancient practice in a modern, inclusive, accessible and empowering way. With world-class instructors, YogaSix offers various yoga and fitness programs that include movements and intensity that are adaptable to all fitness levels.

“Working with the veteran community, I have witnessed the importance of practicing yoga and meditation for veterinarians dealing with (D)PTS,” said Dr. Daniel Libby, clinical psychologist, founder and CEO of VYP. “The success I’ve seen is why I started Veterans Yoga Project and why we’re on a mission to bring yoga and mindfulness to vets in need.”
