Warriors At Ease is happy to announce that Neil Crenshaw is our first certified teacher of our certification program.
Neil served in Vietnam from 1966-1967. From 1965-1968, he served as a staff officer with Commander Amphibious Force on the USS Union, US Pacific Fleet based out of San Diego.
I asked the teacher about the connection and she gave me some information about her teacher Goswami Kriyananda. I began including meditation with my yoga practice and began seeing great results. By 1995 I was free of depression. I wanted to spread the word about yoga and help others so I looked for a way to get certified. There was no Yoga Alliance at that time so I got certified with the American Council on Exercise and began teaching yoga in 1997. I wanted to know more about yoga so I took a certification class taught by John De Minico in Atlanta and got certified with the American Sports Medicine Association in 2002. I asked John how I might go about taking classes with the best yoga teachers in the U.S. and he recommended that I attend one of the yoga conferences sponsored by Yoga Journal. The next year (2003) I attended the Yoga Journal conference in Estes Park, Colorado and took classes with Rodney Yee, Swami Ramananda, Roger Cole, Shiva Rea, Julie Gudmestad and Douglas Brooks. That began a yearly ritual. I have attended the yoga conference in Estes Park every year since then.”
