“I’d like to express my sincere appreciation to you and your staff for allowing me to participate in these classes you’re offering of iRest Yoga Nidra for our returning combat veterans. Please know that as a 100% service-connected disabled Vietnam War veteran who has been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that I can now reassure my fellow Vietnam compatriots of what is being done to aid today’s traumatized combat veterans. I extend my warm “Thank You” to you, as I am convinced that the work that you are doing today with iRest Yoga Nidra will go a long way to restoring to our veterans their sense of wholeness and wellness in the years to come.” Vietnam Vet
