Groton instructor inspired to start yoga class for veterans, military
13 May 2019
Seeing a need in her community, a local resident and yoga instructor is starting a yoga class at the Groton Senior Center for veterans and military service members.
"I just think it's really important to give back to our military," said Connie Steffes, a longtime fitness instructor with the town.
The new yoga class, called "Healing Warriors," which will begin May 10, is designed for veterans and military "who may be experiencing (post-traumatic stress disorder) or stress associated with civilian readjustment, or just need a place to rest and restore," according to the senior center. It is free to veterans and military from all communities.
