Free to all Veterans –

Yoga at LPC SVC Yoga hours have changed

Starting Monday May 2, 2016 Yoga Class will begin at 4:00 PM and end at 5:30 PM. MOVED to the LPC Gym "The Nest" Room/Studio 102

Teacher: Perry Chattler - Completed his 225-hour yoga teacher-training in 2011 and completed his Veterans Yoga Project teacher training in 2014.  His classes are focused on healthy alignment and breath awareness.  Perry is on the Board of Veterans Yoga Project and currently teaches veterans at the Concord Vet Center, the Oakland Vet Center and at LPC SVC.

The Yoga Class: In class, we create a safe environment, where students are free to be who they are.  We begin with warm up exercises, followed by mindful-movement, and ending with relaxation and breathing practice.  Classes are geared to the physical level of the students, with plenty of modifications and encouragement to follow your own pace and your own ability.  Every body is different, with different physical make up, and different histories.  We honor our own bodies and our own minds.  And, we breathe.

Here are some quotes from previous LPC SVC yoga students:

“I feel better since I’ve started the yoga class.  Yoga has taught me patience.”

“For the first time in a long time, my feet don’t hurt.  You taught me how to stand and improve my posture.  I had no idea.”

“My favorite part was the breathing practice.  I haven’t felt that calm in a long time.”

“Wow.  I needed that.”


“I hear all the time, especially from men, that they can’t do yoga because they’re not flexible.  Despite the fancy photos and crazy pretzel shapes shown by the models in the magazines, yoga is not about being flexible.  Yoga is about creating more space and a sense of awareness of what is happening in your mind and in your body.   I have been practicing yoga for about 14 years.  I still do not consider myself to be ‘flexible’.  However, I am more open in both my body and my mind.  I have fewer aches and pains, I recover from physical activities more quickly, I perform better, I sleep better, and I’m calmer.  These are some of the side effects of practicing yoga.  I encourage you to give it a try – 3 classes (yes, in a row!) and then see how you feel.  Prepare to be surprised.”
