Rita Y Marquez-Lohr
I ‘m Rita, a Yoga Teacher & USAF retiree. I have YogaFit certification to teach Yoga. 200-Hour, Warriors 140 for Trauma Sensitive Teachers. I went for the Warriors series because I live and work in a military community. When I found out iRest is used for treatment of veterans with PTSD, I started doing iRest Level 1. I currently teach yoga to trauma patients at a US military hospital. My heart felt desire it to help veterans with trauma and iRest is a key skill for this. I am nearly finished with the Level 1 course. My intention is to find more opportunities to work with veterans. Perhaps the hospital that I currently work with can expand to offer iRest or I can find it at other places. I find teaching veterans to find peace in their hearts as a way to extend compassion. I think the world needs more compassion.
