ABOUT MINDFUL RESILIENCE YOGA
Created by Veterans Yoga Project founder Daniel Libby, PHD, Mindful Resilience is a collection of mind-body practices that includes Breathing, Meditation, Mindful Movement, Guided Rest, and Gratitude. These tools help us breath easy, focus clearly, move freely, rest deeply, and remember what is working in our lives. As a result we become more resilient in the face of both ordinary and extraordinary challenges.
Five Tools of Mindful Resilience
- Breathing - Simple techniques that enhance the relaxation response.
- Meditation – Awareness exercises that enhance focus and concentration.
- Mindful Movement – Deliberate exercises that bring the body through its natural range of motion to enhance strength and flexibility.
- Guided Rest – Guided meditation practices that lead to deep and profound relaxation and rest in the mind and body.
- Gratitude – Simple exercises in being thankful for what is right.
Yoga Teacher Deb Jeannette is President of the Board of Directors for Veterans Yoga Project, and the proud mom of her son, who is a Marine helicopter pilot and her daughter, who is a chef. She is teaching at the VAMC in Northport since January 2015. She also serves as Director of the yoga program at Drew Patrick on Long Island.
In 2004, Deb completed a 500-hour teacher training with the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA and studied yoga at their campuses in India. She later studied Mindful Resilience for Trauma Recovery with Veterans Yoga Project so she could hone the special skill set which is required to work with students who have faced trauma.
Deb’s work stems from teaching from the heart. Influenced by her teachers, peers, environment and her travels, her aim is to bring a unique sense of empowerment to her students. Her classes follow an intuitive practice, holding space for her students and meeting them where they are. Drawing upon a lifetime passion directed towards the achievement of self-awareness, her aim is to guide students with mindfulness and the healing powers of Yoga; touching one heart at a time.
