Why Is This Important?

YogaShield's® Protocol is evidenced-based to enhance the lives and performance of first responders.  Together, we can raise funds to get first responders and military personnel the tools they need to process stress, build resilience and enhance performance through the field-tested methodology of Yoga For First Responders®.

We invite you to be a part of this movement to give 2,200+ first responders Cyber Academy for FREE for a year.  It is without a doubt that YogaShield's® mission can save lives and make a difference in those we touch! 

"One of the most important changes that I think I experienced is a more effortless mindfulness.  As a first responder myself, I knew that there had to be something I could do to bring myself out of the excited state of getting a call in the middle of the night, but I didn't know what or how.  Being mindful of what is going on around me, and knowing how to control my mind, body and breath has been a game changer." 

- Dana, Firefighter/EMT
