This comprehensive trauma-­sensitive yoga program is designed to provide the instruction and tools you need to understand PTSD and trauma at a deeper level and to guide your clients (or students) toward greater healing. Created by a military veteran and a yoga therapist, YogaFit for Warriors is ideal for yoga teachers and mental health professionals as well as military personnel and their families, first responders, and healthcare workers.

During this retreat, you can begin AND complete your 100-hour trauma-sensitive yoga certification in a single two-week period.

This comprehensive program, broken out into three sessions, is designed to provide the instruction and tools you need in order to guide your clients (or students) toward greater healing.

Featuring the exhibit

Frankfort’s Fishing Reels: Jewels of the Bluegrass

Frankfort has a very unique place in history as being the town where the bait casting fishing reel was perfected and first produced. Every place has its historic event or figure, but only we have this distinction. It was a Frankfort industry for over 100 years. Local craftsmen handmade these gems to fish the renowned streams of central Kentucky. Their reputation for quality and beauty was recognized around the world.
