Hey there my fabulous beach lovers!

What does a highly skilled Navy pilot do when her mission comes to a sudden dramatic end?

Well, as any pilot would do - she maps out a new flight plan, makes a few course corrections, and then, sets her sight on a NEW mission!

Today’s episode is the story of Kathryn Thomas, navy pilot, veteran trauma survivor, and founder of Yoga 4 Change.

When I first heard someone mention Yoga 4 Change, I thought, “I’m not really sure what it’s about but it sounds like a great topic for the podcast!”

Yoga 4 Change, top winner of One Spark 2015 in the social good category, is a non-profit, creating meaningful change for veterans, incarcerated individuals, at-hope youth (at-HOPE - Love that!) and those recovering from substance use.

Its purpose-driven yoga program heals and empowers these under-served populations, creating healthier, safer communities. One class at a time.

Listen in as Kathryn describes what it was like navigating through the battlefield of trauma in order to clear the path for others to make a precision landing on their personal airfield of change.
