veteransyoga.org.au is a not for profit organisation and registered charity which has a goal of providing psychologically based scientific yoga programs for veterans and active personnel of the military and first responder communities. We aim to provide these yoga programs at no cost to veterans and active personnel which is funded by donations from generous sponsors. We currently manage the program through Brave Health Group to ensure the quality of programs and to maintain high standards of teaching by psychologists only. The strategic vision of the committee at veteransyoga.org.au includes the intention to broaden the program using accredited psychologists in the yoga class whilst maintaining the quality and scientific strength of our programs.
Brave Health Group is a multidisciplinary team of registered and experienced psychologists who are also qualified Yoga Teachers who specialise in developing psychology led and evidence based yoga programs to help military and first responder veterans and active personnel to utilise yoga/mindfulness to reduce the symptoms.
Importantly all yoga programs have been designed by the principal psychologist and integrate directly with our psychological treatment plans. The yoga programs are designed with specific attention to the psychological needs of our clients and these programs can be undertaken in both group or individual programs. We conduct both intensive treatment packages combining individual psychological sessions integrating specific group yoga programs and we also conduct yoga only programs which have less commitment, are more cost effective and this program can provide a good introduction to the benefits of yoga. We currently have two specific yoga programs, the first program has a specific focus on managing the symptoms of trauma whilst the alternative yoga program has a focus on managing the symptoms of anger.
Brave Health Group understands the sensitivity of trauma and anger and works closely with the clients General Practitioner (GP) to ensure the programs directly support the overall treatment goals. We also ensure that extensive psychometric testing is undertaken and evaluated prior to any of the programs being completed. These tests are often restricted to authorised health professionals.
