Disability Matters with Eric Walrabenstein
December 10, 2013
Hosted by Joyce Bender
Joyce welcomes Eric Walrabenstein, an author, speaker, founder of Operation Bootstrap and nationally-recognized expert in the fields of yoga and mind/body health. Eric’s Operation Bootstrap Program is designed to help returning veterans and their families cope with the effects of post traumatic stress disorder and other psychological effects of war. This first-of-its-kind program combines modern scientific stress-management principles with the ancient mind/body wisdom of yoga to return both body and mind to their naturally relaxed state of balance. Eric will discuss this program in depth and explain how it is saving lives.
