About Connected Warriors:
It was Judy Weaver's vision that Connected Warriors, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, was founded in August of 2010 with Ralph Iovino to deliver free yoga classes to service members, veterans and their families across the country. By soliciting the support of local yoga studios, veteran centers and other donated spaces in the communities, we connect participants of all ages with local volunteers. Our community approach leverages local yoga teachers to support the free classes, with additional teachers based on the age and ability of the students. There is never a charge to our participants and they can attend as many free classes each week as they choose. To-date, Connected Warriors has served over 4,300 service members, veterans and their families in 9 states. The organization is funded by public and private donations.
