Meeting Bhava Ram on Skype created an instant bond that was brought to fruition when we met in person at the 2015 Sedona Yoga Festival. Bhava's story and journey is intensely powerful and speaks to the human being's ability to heal in a miraculous way. Bhava is such a miracle and that which he touches blessed.
We, Marc and Heather Titus, Founder/Director and Producer of the Sedona Yoga Festival, support Warriors for Healing, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is:
To spread awareness about the transformational science of yoga and its effectiveness in combating stress and PTSD – we do this by holding major events throughout the year. In addition, W4H in conjunction with our foundation partner Give Back Yoga Foundation provides yoga therapy trainings for those wishing to teach veterans, instructional booklets and audios to VA Centers and a host of military and veteran groups, and we provide free yoga classes for veteran at various yoga studios and community centers across the country.
One such event is being held on 6/28/2015 at the Yoga Journal Live Conference in San Diego, CA.
On June 28th @ 1pm this movement will go national - live streamed from coast to coast - when over 600+ Yogis, service groups, spiritual centers, veterans and military supporters join together on the idyllic Windsor Lawn of the historic Hotel del Coronado overlooking the Pacific Ocean in a 90-minute Warriors for Healing Yoga Celebration of Service led by Bhava Ram, with music by Steve Gold and special guest performers.
